JetNation 2023 Mock Draft - Selections

Recommended Posts

With the 143rd pick in the 2023 NFL Draft the Jacksonville Jaguars select:


WR Parker Washington, Penn State


Penn State wide receiver Parker Washington projects as a slot receiver, offensive weapon, and key special teamer at the NFL level. Washington’s best qualities are his return ability, his hands, and his contact balance to absorb blows in space and continue working for added yardage. Any NFL team looking to find a crafty player with the ball in his hands should consider Washington in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Originally a 4-star recruit, Washington committed to the Nittany Lions out of Fort Bend Travis HS in Richmond, Texas as a member of the recruiting class of 2020. Washington spurned offers from other Big Ten powers like Wisconsin & Nebraska, plus Utah in order to sign Penn State. Washington posted a SPARQ score in excess of 120 as a recruit, highlighted by a 38-inch vertical leap. He would then go on to finish second on the team in receptions, yards, and touchdowns as a true freshman in 2020. Across three years at Penn State, Washington has been a critical component of the passing game. He is cousins with NFL quarterback Joshua Dobbs—offering an NFL family bloodline to his resume as well. 

Washington has clear and evident natural talent. He has ball skills that are well developed beyond his years and pairs that with slippery mobility, strong acceleration, and a creative running style with and without the football. Washington has experience in a slew of alignments but his best work and highest volume have come from the slot. His ability to take throws in stride and play off contact for RAC is accentuated by how dense he is as a player—he’s built like Amari Rodgers from Clemson several years back and carries his weight like a running back. But the story with Washington that will garner the most attention is the ball skills—he hauled in incredible one-handed catches throughout the course of his career; suggesting there’s a dormant more polished and versatile receiver than the one he was able to showcase himself as at Penn State. Add in good slipperiness and lateral agility plus very good contact balance and the pathway to being a challenging receiver to defend is evident for Washington as he continues to grow.

With 147th pick of the draft the Tennessee Titans select: -

Michael Wilson - WR - Stanford


I made this pick on the assumption that medicals are clear at which point I think good upside to this pick. I think good chance my guy goes inside 3 rounds.

  • Prototypical size standing 6-1 and weighing in at 216lbs combined with the speed to give DBs serious concern
  • He’s equally dangerous in catch-and-run situations as Wilson is taking the top off a defense
  • While his career has been limited at Stanford - he's still managed to put up a career QB rating when targetted of 105.4
  • Wilson has reliable hands and shows the willingness to make catches in traffic over the middle.
  • Really nice run blocker - almost looks like tight end out there on sweeps
  • A traditional split end wide receiver - has played 85% of his snaps out wide
  • Could play as a gunner on special teams early in his pro career while still finding his feet
  • He catches the ball with his large (72nd percentile), soft hands, and is tough. Deceptive jets and a smooth route runner.
  • Escaping the jam won’t be a problem with his upper-body strength and quick hands. He’ll help as a perimeter blocker in the run game.
  • Wilson runs precise routes, showing an innate feel for setting up defensive backs to create separation.
  • Physical player able to get off press coverage to release up the sideline or position himself inside the cornerback on slants and crossing routes.
  • Surprised a lot of scouts by being the best receiver at the Senior Bowl - caught four passes for a game-high 76 yards, including the game-sealing touchdown from Haener in the fourth quarter
  • Wilson's ability to take the top off of defense was questioned - but he may have quashed these criticisms during an outstanding week at the Senior Bowl

With pick 152, the Detroit Lions select Kendre Miller, RB, TCU. 

Lions signed David Montgomery, who is only 25.  Swift has been an injury disappointment and has a year left. They can trade him/cut him and take a $950,000 dead cap hit, but either way they will save $1.8M minus Miller's lower salary and have a very exciting prospect for the next few years to team up with Montgomery.  Undervalued player IMO.
