Mock Draft Tracker 7.0: Full order set ahead of free agency

MOCK-DRAFT-TRACKER

With this year's compensatory selections announced, the full 2023 NFL Draft order is now officially set.

Following the trade for Darren Waller, the Giants have 10 picks in this year's draft:

  • Round 1 - No. 25 overall
  • Round 2 - No. 57
  • Round 3 - No. 89
  • Round 4 - No. 128
  • Round 5 - No. 160
  • Round 5 - No. 172 (Compensatory Selection)
  • Round 6 - No. 209 (from KC)
  • Round 7 - No. 240 (from BAL)
  • Round 7 - No. 243
  • Round 7 - No. 254 (Compensatory Selection)

Meanwhile, the league gears up for the free agency signing period, which begins Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET. What happens in the first waves will certainly affect the draft, but for now, here is a look at what's out there in the latest projections:

Pick: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Analysis: "Wan'Dale Robinson flashed before tearing his ACL, but Flowers could really unlock another level of the offense. With explosive traits, great instincts and 4.42 speed, he caught 78 balls for 1,077 yards and 12 TDs in 2022. Flowers is only 5-9 and 182 pounds, though, and fits best in the slot -- where 5-8 Robinson predominantly lined up as a rookie."

Pick: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

Analysis: "Johnston is the big, fast and physical receiver they need. At 6-foot-4, he is tremendous after the catch, breaking tackles and running for long touchdowns. He understands how to use his frame to high-point the ball in the air."

Pick: Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

Analysis: "The Giants are desperate for some explosiveness at receiver. Hyatt provides plenty of it."

Pick: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Analysis: "On tape, Addison has some routes that give you flashbacks of Stefon Diggs. Giants head coach Brian Daboll had a front-row seat for Diggs's game in Buffalo, so the hope would be to replicate that in New York. At 173 pounds, Addison was smaller than expected at the combine, but he would add a different dimension to the Giants' passing attack."

Pick: Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

Analysis: "Hyatt exploded onto the scene in Tennessee's vertical tempo offense, catching 67 passes for 1,267 yards and 15 touchdowns, all while averaging a clean 18.9 yards per catch. He is a certified deep threat, with one area scout telling me at the Senior Bowl that he'll likely run in the low 4.3-second range in the 40-yard dash."

Pick: Joe Tippmann, IOL, Wisconsin

Analysis: "Joe Tippmann should be a definite Combine winner, and he could be a surprise first-round pick as a result. With a projected 10-yard split in the 1.6 range at 6'6", 320 pounds, he has elite size, power, and athleticism. The Giants could put him at center or guard and find space behind his devastating blocks."

Pick: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Analysis: "The Giants need more weapons on the perimeter. Flowers is an electric playmaker with sticky hands and outstanding route-running skills."

Pick: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

Analysis: "This could be a fairly easy call, as Kincaid's sticky hands and high-volume capability allow the Giants to mix up their "11" and "12" personnel groupings more frequently."

Pick: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Analysis: "Flowers lined up out wide on almost two-thirds of his snaps at BC, and while that may not be how he's used at the next level, he has the speed and route traits that Giants coach Brian Daboll could use on third down, specifically."

Pick: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

Analysis: "Head coach Brian Daboll has been a master at scheming to talent, and in the right role, there may be no better receiver in this class to scheme to than Smith-Njigba. He is nearly unguardable on option routes over the middle of the field and can easily take on a Cooper Kupp– or Amon-Ra St. Brown-esque slot role."

Pick: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

Analysis: "Isaiah Hodgins opened eyes late in the season, and Wan'Dale Robinson will be back from a torn ACL, but adding a lengthy playmaker with burst and 50-50 skills makes sense."

Pick: Drew Sanders, LB, Alabama

Analysis: "Whether he's lining up off the ball to run and cover or dropping down to rush off the edge, Sanders has the length and speed to wear multiple hats in Wink Martindale's defense."

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah updated his ranking of the top 50 prospects in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Pick: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Analysis: "Zay Flowers was virtually unstoppable at Boston College and that was with suspect quarterback play. He has a chance to be WR1 in New York -- and deservedly so -- and he also return skills."

Pick: Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

Analysis: "The Giants add Skoronski, who could begin his career at guard, to the blocking unit in front of Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley."

Pick: Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina

Analysis: "The UNC WR can carve defenses up in space and generate downfield plays from the slot."

Pick: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Analysis: "Though the Giants would probably like to get a bigger-bodied wide receiver, what they really need is just more playmaking ability from the position. Flowers, while small in size, brings that electric playstyle as an outside receiver and slot player."

Pick: Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

Analysis: "Smith is a tremendous competitor that is battle-tested playing in the SEC. His twitchy movements and sticky coverage abilities will be coveted when New York covers the receivers in this division."

Pick: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

Analysis: "Johnston is an explosive vertical playmaker that should give Jones a big target to throw to and make things easier for him in the passing game."

Pick: John Michael Schmitz, IOL, Minnesota

Analysis: "John Michael Schmitz is a powerful interior offensive lineman who can play guard or center."

Pick: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Analysis: "This is a home-run style fit and a home-run need filled here in this NFL mock draft."

Pick: Pick: O'Cyrus Torrence, IOL, Florida

Analysis: "It is now known that Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley are returning next season -- so what is one selection that would benefit both? Offensive line. O'Cyrus Torrence is physical at the point of attack and has been coached by former Giants offensive line coach Rob Sale for the past year."

Pick: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Analysis: "He caught 59 passes for 875 yards and eight TDs this season, and the Giants would get a potential WR1 before a mini run on receivers here."

Pick: Jaxon Smith-Njigba WR, Ohio State

Analysis: "Adding a presence like Jaxon Smith-Njigba to go with the emerging Isaiah Hodgins would allow for the Giants' offense to stabilize and take off in year two under Brian Daboll."

Pick: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Analysis: "Many of the top WR prospects ran slower than expected in the 40-yard dash at the combine, Jordan Addison included, but that doesn't mean the Pittsburgh/USC standout shouldn't be a first-round pick. Addison plays faster on tape than his 40 time, and his route-running and ball skills will provide Daniel Jones with a legitimate pass-catching weapon."

Pick: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

Analysis: "I wish he was a bit more of a natural hands-catcher, but he checks off a ton of the boxes you look for in a top weapon that can threaten every level of a defense."

Pick: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

Analysis: "Mayer is one of the highest-floor players in the draft. You know you're getting a complete, productive tight end at the next level. However, can he separate enough to be a true difference-maker? I think that they will add to the wide receiver position in free agency or via trade. I do still like adding to the passing attack here, and a 6-foot-4 tight end with a 91.6 PFF receiving grade in 2022 fits the bill nicely."
