Mock Draft Tracker 3.0: Todd McShay's latest pick


The 2022 NFL season is officially in the books.

That means the first round of the draft is set and the offseason is in full swing. The order for the first 18 picks is determined by record, using strength of schedule as the first tiebreaker, and the rest is dictated by postseason play. After winning Super Bowl LVII, the Kansas City Chiefs locked up the 31st and final spot while the runner-up Philadelphia Eagles slid into No. 30 (Note: The NFL announced in August that the Miami Dolphins will forfeit their 2023 first-round pick).

A year after drafting twice in the top 10 for the first time in franchise history, the Giants currently hold the 25th overall pick following their 9-7-1 regular season and a run to the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Before we get into what the draft experts are saying, here is a look at the official order for Round 1:

  1. Chicago Bears
  2. Houston Texans
  3. Arizona Cardinals
  4. Indianapolis Colts
  5. Seattle Seahawks (via Broncos)
  6. Detroit Lions (via Rams)
  7. Las Vegas Raiders
  8. Atlanta Falcons
  9. Carolina Panthers
  10. Philadelphia Eagles (via Saints)
  11. Tennessee Titans
  12. Houston Texans (via Browns)
  13. New York Jets
  14. New England Patriots
  15. Green Bay Packers
  16. Washington Commanders
  17. Pittsburgh Steelers
  18. Detroit Lions
  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  20. Seattle Seahawks
  21. Los Angeles Chargers
  22. Baltimore Ravens
  23. Minnesota Vikings
  24. Jacksonville Jaguars
  25. New York Giants
  26. Dallas Cowboys
  27. Buffalo Bills
  28. Cincinnati Bengals
  29. Denver Broncos (via 49ers through Dolphins)
  30. Philadelphia Eagles
  31. Kansas City Chiefs

Now for what's out there in the latest mock drafts:

Pick: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Analysis: "I really like Flowers' skill set. He's elusive in the open field and has the speed to separate from coverage. Last season, he caught 78 balls for 1,077 yards and 12 TDs while forcing a bunch of missed tackles."

Pick: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Analysis: "Addison put up huge numbers at Pitt in 2021 before dealing with some injuries at USC, and he has the versatility to play outside or in the slot. He just knows how to get open. New York also will get back rookie second-rounder Wan'Dale Robinson, who flashed before tearing an ACL."

Pick: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

Analysis: "The Giants need to add more firepower on the outside, and Addison is the best route-runner in the 2023 draft. The former Trojan possesses excellent play speed, which will add another dimension to Brian Daboll's offense."

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: O'Cyrus Torrence, G, Florida

Analysis: "I've always been of the mind that O'Cyrus Torrence is more of a second-rounder than a first-round prospect. There are still questions about his lateral agility and movement freedom, but his strength was borderline dominant at the Senior Bowl."

Pick: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

Analysis: "The Giants could open their checkbook and re-sign Daniel Jones after the quarterback played his best football in 2022. Giving Danny Dimes a bona fide No. 1 wideout could help him take his game to another level in 2023."

Pick: Trenton Simpson, LB, Clemson

Analysis: "Simpson has extremely rare speed as a linebacker. The Giants know they need to put players on the field who can run and chase the Eagles for years to come."

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: Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

Analysis: "The Georgia-to-first-round pipeline continues. A year after five Bulldogs went in Round 1, expect a handful this time around, too. Kelee Ringo is a long, physical corner who has matched up against some of the best players in the country."

Pick: O'Cyrus Torrence, G, Florida

Analysis: "Torrence is an NFL-ready guard the Giants can plug in immediately. He'll improve the run and pass game for the G-Men."

Pick: Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina

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

Pick: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

Analysis: "He feels like a slot exclusive player, as more than 85% of his snaps came from the slot over the past two years, but he's one of the savviest receivers and best route runners in the class."

Pick: Clark Phillips III, CB, Utah

Analysis: "Clark Phillips III is a flat-out dog in coverage. His ability to take the football away may be his best trait. He will fit well in Wink Martindale's man-heavy defense."

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: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

Analysis: "Quentin Johnston gives the Giants some height in the pass game. The hope is that a healthy Wan'Dale Robinson returns and the two can complement each other for quite some time."

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."
