The Bears moved on from Robert Quinn before the trade deadline, so they'll be in the market for an edge rusher this offseason. Will Anderson Jr. is in the same pre-draft conversations as Chase Young and Nick Bosa when it comes to best non-QB players in a class.

2 Bryce Young QB

Bryce Young might be historically undersized by successful NFL QB standards, but we don't care. He's been that good for Alabama, dragging that team to victory just about every week. And he did it with none of the playmakers that made life so much easier for Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones in previous years.

3 Tyree Wilson EDGE

The more you watch of Tyree Wilson, the more you love his game. Not only what he put on tape at Texas Tech, but his upside 2-3 years down the road. He's long, has the frame to add weight if needed, and is a dominant, high-motor pass rusher who can take over games.

2022 College Stats

4 C.J. Stroud QB

Since Andrew Luck's retirement, the Colts have had little success turning to QBs nearing the end of their careers, and it's safe to assume that owner Jim Irsay will be looking for the team's next face of the franchise. C.J. Stroud has flown under the national-media radar all season, but some NFL teams will tell you he'll be in the running for QB1, and his performance in the College Football Playoff semifinal game vs. Georgia showed that he can beat you with his arm and his legs.

5 Jalen Carter DL

Jalen Carter, who was arguably the best defender on a '21 Georgia D that had five first-round picks, would fill a huge void in Seattle, where the defense has struggled getting after the quarterback.

2022 College Stats

6 Myles Murphy DL

Myles Murphy turned 21 in early January, and while we'd like to see him play with more consistency ... he just turned 21 in early January. He has all the physical tools you look for in an elite edge defenders and it's easy to see him in a few years being dominant. And that, in large part, is what makes him such an interesting prospect.

2022 College Stats

7 Will Levis QB

It's hard to imagine that Jarrett Stidham is in the team's long-term plans as a starter. And with Derek Carr set to be somewhere else in 2023 -- and Tom Brady officially-for-now retired, drafting a QB seems to be a high priority. Levis, who definitely looks the part, was plagued by injuries and poor play all fall. That said, NFL teams love how he projects to the next level, but he'll be a controversial talking point in the coming months.

2022 College Stats

11 2406 65.4 19 10
8 Joey Porter Jr. CB

Joey Porter Jr. is the prototypical big, physical cornerback who looks like he belongs in the NFL. He can sometimes get a little too handsy downfield, but he checks many of the boxes of what teams look for when drafting DBs.

2022 College Stats

9 Anthony Richardson QB

Anthony Richardson is one of the most exciting prospects in this class. The problem: he's short on experience, and while his physical tools are rare, the Panthers are in dire need of a starting QB right now. David Tepper could choose to go the free agency route (again), but that has been, shall we say, a crapshoot. At the end of the day, Carolina may have to move inside the top 5 if it wants to get a quarterback with Day 1 starter potential.

2022 College Stats

12 2549 53.8 17 9
10 Jordan Addison WR

Jordan Addison isn't a big target, but he's one of the most dynamic players in the country who can line up anywhere. The only question is whether Addison or Quentin Johnston will be WR1. Two different body types, two different playing styles -- both dominant.

2022 College Stats

11 59 875 14.8 8
11 Paris Johnson Jr. OT

Paris Johnson, who played left tackle for the Buckeyes this season, also has experience on the interior; either way, he is a Day 1 starter.

12 Peter Skoronski OT

Peter Skoronski is solid and consistent, which are two of the best things you can say about an offensive lineman. The biggest issue he'll face during the pre-draft process will be arm length and whether his NFL future is at tackle or guard.

13 O'Cyrus Torrence OL

O'Cyrus Torrence transferred from Louisiana and didn't miss a beat. He was dominant for Florida last fall, he was dominant during Senior Bowl practices, and if history is any guide, he'll be dominant in the NFL, too.

14 Quentin Johnston WR

Quentin Johnston's an above-the-rim playmaker whose athleticism and contested-catch abilities make him in the running for WR1. Mac Jones has a new offensive coordinator and now he gets a new downfield target.

2022 College Stats

13 60 1069 17.8 6
15 Lukas Van Ness EDGE

Lukas Van Ness never started a game at Iowa, but that's not the point. The point is that NFL teams love his size, his athleticism, and where his game could be a couple of years from now. Purdue's George Karlaftis went at the end of Round 1 a year ago, and USC's Drake Jackson went a round later; both players were high-upside prospects who exceeded expectations as rookies. Van Ness is in the same conversation but could be the best of the bunch.

2022 College Stats

16 Devon Witherspoon CB

Devon Witherspoon had a great season for the Illini, and while there will be questions about his slight frame, you wouldn't know it watching him play.

2022 College Stats

11 3
17 Brian Branch S

Brian Branch isn't the first name you hear about when the conversation turns to Alabama's defense, but maybe he should be. He's a sure tackler, can blitz off the edge, and is solid in coverage. And if Nick Saban trusts him, that's all you need to know about his NFL prospects.

2022 College Stats

13 2
18 Deonte Banks DB

Maryland teammate and fellow CB Jakorian Bennett got much of the buzz in the fall, but Deonte Banks put together the type of season that will land you in the top-50 conversation. He's a fluid athlete who is also a big, physical corner who can run with NFL wide receivers.

19 Christian Gonzalez CB

Christian Gonzalez, a Colorado transfer, is a big-time athlete who is still growing into the position. He has the size, strength and speed to line up against NFL wide receivers; he just needs to Boost in run support.

2022 College Stats

12 4
20 Jaxon Smith-Njigba WR

Jaxon Smith-Njigba barely saw the field during the 2022 season because of injuries, but he's still one of the top wideouts in the class. And with Geno Smith about to get paid, the Seahawks might as well get him some more weapons.

2022 College Stats

3 5 43 8.6 0
21 Anton Harrison OT

There was some thought that Harrison might return to Oklahoma for an NIL deal that was too good to pass up, but he's instead opted for the NFL. He's one of the top tackles in the class, and now the question is whether he finds his way into Round 1 or goes early on Day 2.

22 Bijan Robinson RB

Bijan Robinson is special, and while he is probably one of the best players in this class, he could still be around late in Round 1 because he's a running back. And while the Ravens and offensive coordinator Greg Roman have parted ways, it's fair to assume that the team will still revolve around Lamar Jackson and the run game. J.K. Dobbins showed flashes after returning from ACL surgery, but there isn't a lot of depth behind him. A backfield of Jackson, Dobbins and Robinson is a problem for the rest of the AFC, even if Baltimore has more pressing needs here.

2022 College Stats

12 258 1580 6.1 18
23 Drew Sanders LB

Drew Sanders is a former five-star who transferred from Alabama after the 2021 season, and all he did was show out for the Razorbacks. He was an edge rusher for the Crimson Tide, but he lined up all over the defense for Arkansas. He's a one-man wrecking crew when he's on the field.

2022 College Stats

12 1
24 Dawand Jones OT

We'll see if Dawand Jones ultimately finds his way into the first round, but it's hard to overlook just how dominant he was in one day of practice at the Senior Bowl. Yes, his footwork needs some fine-tuning, but his huge frame, long arms and enormous wingspan more than make up for what he lacks in quickness. He's block-out-the-sun big, even when standing next to his offensive linemates.

25 Kelee Ringo CB

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.

2022 College Stats

14 2
26 Jalin Hyatt WR

Jalin Hyatt wasn't in the first-round conversation heading into the 2022 season, but he's a great example of a player taking advantage of his opportunities, thanks in large part to Hendon Hooker's Heisman Trophy campaign. Hyatt is a bona-fide deep threat who consistently ran past defensive backs who were helpless to do much about it all season.

2022 College Stats

12 67 1267 18.9 15
27 Michael Mayer TE

Michael Mayer is more Gronk than Kelce, but that's not a bad thing. And in Green Bay, he'll get plenty of chances, whether it's with Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love, or the QB behind Door No. 3.

2022 College Stats

12 67 809 12.1 9
28 Broderick Jones OT

Broderick Jones had had a strong '22 campaign for the Bulldogs, where he has faced some of the best defensive players in the country every day at practice for the last two years. He's not yet a finished product, but he has the athleticism and strength to be a difference-maker when he puts it all together.

29 Jahmyr Gibbs RB

Jahmyr Gibbs has drawn comparisons to Dalvin Cook and Alvin Kamara as both a runner and a receiver. The Saints have big needs at QB, for sure, but they're not going to find one at this point in the first round. Instead, they double up on Kamara-type talents in the backfield.

2022 College Stats

12 151 926 6.1 7
30 Cam Smith CB

James Bradberry will be a free agent in a few weeks, and while there are very few holes on this defense, there will be depth needs in the secondary. Cam Smith is a first-round talent who can be a Day 1 contributor.

2022 College Stats

11 1
31 Luke Musgrave TE

Luke Musgrave was getting some late-first/early Day-2 buzz down at the Senior Bowl, and while he didn't have a great week, it was certainly easy to see why teams like him. He missed most of '22 with an injury, but he's well built, long, and has the athleticism to consistently separate from both safeties and linebackers. His blocking is a work in progress, but he'll be a contributor in the passing game from Day 1.

Killexams : How to Open a Private Medical Practice, Step by Step

Starting your own medical practice is an exciting way to take the practice of medicine into your own hands. However, it’s also complicated and challenging. For your medical business to be successful, you need a clear and detailed plan at the outset to keep things moving on schedule. This step-by-step guide can help you start a private medical practice, from obtaining funding to welcoming the first patients.

How to start a medical practice

There is no universal formula for starting a medical practice. It might be worth your while to hire a professional consultant who has started medical practices before, is aware of the pitfalls and challenges, and can advise you on medical malpractice insurance and workers’ compensation. After all, the specific details of starting up vary by specialty, and some laws and regulations differ by state. 

A professional consultant will understand the variables and help you plan accordingly. Some new practices might need to hire contractors to outfit their new offices, while others might find a turnkey location. Overall, however, many common items must be on your checklist when building a practice from the ground up. Here’s how to start a private medical practice, step by step.

1. Obtain funding.

With so much to do, you might be asking yourself where to begin. In a word – financing.

The actual dollar amount needed depends on your unique situation, but in general, you should aim to secure at least $100,000 to cover equipment and startup costs, said David J. Zetter, founder and president of Zetter Healthcare and a member of the National Society of Certified Healthcare Business Consultants. In addition, Zetter said, you should try to obtain a $100,000 line of credit to cover payroll and bills until your revenue stream is established and stable, which will take some time. [See our recommendations for the best payroll providers.]

“If you’re not independently wealthy, or you just have enough money to set out the cost to open but also need to have operating capital until revenue comes in, then you need a loan,” he said.

So, how can you convince a bank to front you the money you’ll need?

2. Create a pro forma. 

To figure out your financing, make a pro forma. A pro forma is the lighter version of a full-blown business plan, with revenue and debt projections grounded in reality. In your pro forma, account for all your medical clinic expenses, debt and anticipated revenues. Bankers can tell which projections are realistic and which aren’t; it’s their job to make wise investments, so you’ll want to back up any numbers you use if you’re going to pursue a bank loan. A strong pro forma will project at least three years into the future and sometimes as far as five years out.

“The first thing you need to do is build a pro forma, which basically tells the story of what your revenue will be from the first until at least the third year, because you need to go out and get financing,” said Zetter. “You need to include the costs to set up the practice, your lease’s cost per square foot, your [electronic health record system] expense, medical supplies and office supplies. You’re building a crystal ball of what the practice looks like, and you have to be able to tell how all of those numbers came into being.”

Obtaining financing through a traditional bank loan can be tricky, especially considering that many healthcare providers have a negative net worth after taking on debt to attend medical school. That’s where a solid, realistic pro forma comes in. Max Reiboldt, president and CEO of the Coker Group consulting firm and author of Starting, Buying, and Owning a Medical Practice, explained the importance of a rational business plan and the absolute need for startup financing.

“You’re not going to get capital to start your business without a solid business plan,” Reiboldt said. “We show cash flow needs and debt projections by month, or at least by quarter. Furthermore, in healthcare, you don’t get paid very much when you perform the services. You’re really at the mercy of the insurance companies and the government. So, there is a tremendous lag … on cash flow on top of this tremendous capital investment you’re making.”

Here are some financing tips.

  1. Find the specialists. Submit your pro forma and loan request to the medical/dental division of the bank, if it has one. This division specializes in the healthcare industry and understands the risks, expenses and revenue models of that sector.
  2. Shop around. Submit your pro forma and loan request at five to 10 banks. That way, you’ll receive several offers, each with slightly different terms. Decide which terms are most important to you – interest rate, amortization schedule, etc. – and make your selection based on those priorities.
  3. Stay conservative. When creating your pro forma, take a conservative approach to purchasing equipment and furniture, and stick to it. You don’t need leather chairs and cutting-edge machinery just yet. All of that will come with time and success; right now you should focus on setting yourself up for that success.
  4. Use the waiting period wisely. While the banks review your pro forma and considering whether to approve your loan request, prepare to tackle some of the next crucial steps, like signing a lease, determining whether you’ll need to hire a contractor to modify your space, filing articles of incorporation, obtaining a tax ID, buying liability and medical malpractice insurance, and credentialing with your payers.

Key TakeawayKey takeaway: The best business loans can help finance your medical practice.

3. Purchase equipment and staff your practice.

Once you’ve obtained a loan and opened a line of credit, you’re ready to start hiring your team and purchasing the office and medical equipment you’ll need. This task is easier said than done, and ample research is necessary for each decision. But again, with a little planning and the right information, setting yourself up for success is just a matter of effort. Here are some of the aspects you’ll want to consider.

Electronic health record systems

Electronic health record (EHR) systems, also known as electronic medical records (EMR) systems, are essential tools of the trade for medical providers. Digitizing records and streamlining communication is a high priority for the modern healthcare provider. An all-inclusive EHR serves as a one-stop shop for your patients’ records and histories, communications with other providers, lab and prescription orders, and information on your revenue cycle. 

Editor’s note: Looking for the right electronic medical record system for your business? Fill out the below questionnaire to have our vendor partners contact you about your needs.

Moreover, you’ll need a well-functioning EHR system to qualify for federal incentive payments. Learn how to choose an EHR/EMR system and see our recommendations for the best EHR/EMR medical software.

Practice management systems

Your practice management system (PMS) is the lifeblood of your practice. Integrated with your EHR system, practice management software keeps track of all your front-office information and facilitates operations. Chief among its uses is conducting and monitoring billing and collecting

Not only will your staff use the practice management system to bill patients and send claims to payers, but any relevant information will be shared between the EHR system and the practice management software, eliminating the need to duplicate records. 

Medical billing services

You can always outsource your billing to a third-party company. You’d still need a practice management system, but at least your staff wouldn’t have to deal with overseeing the billing process. Not only is submitting claims time-consuming and complex, but your team would also be responsible for responding to rejected or denied claims to get the money due to your practice. When you opt for a third-party billing service, that burden shifts to the company you’ve contracted with. Still, there are potential downsides with a third-party biller to consider as well. For information on choosing a vendor that meets your needs, visit our guide to the best medical billing services.

Medical transcription software 

Think about how medical transcription fits into your practice. There are typically three ways a medical business performs transcription: in-house with a staff member, via voice recognition software or outsourced to a medical transcription service. The key aspects are timeliness and accuracy; you want your dictations returned in print quickly, but only if they’re accurate, especially if they’re going to another healthcare provider or will be uploaded into your EHR system. If you’re considering medical transcription and wondering which method is right for you, consult our roundup of the top medical transcription companies.

Background check services

Medical practices are founded on trust. Not only do they handle a lot of sensitive patient information every day, but people are literally trusting the practice with their lives. That extends beyond exams, diagnoses and treatments. You’ll want to know and be able to trust your staff, which means employing a background check system. 

You’ll be interested in candidates’ criminal and employment histories, but healthcare providers have more to consider beyond what the average background check provides. There are also required certifications and licenses to consider. Failure to ensure your staff is properly credentialed could result in big problems for your practice. Visit our overview of highly rated background check services to find the right provider for your practice.

Credit card processors

Although you’ll be making most of your money through payers like insurance companies and Medicare, your practice will need a credit card processor for when patients need to pay at the point of care. Not only has the world of credit card processing changed lately, with the addition of EMV chips and other security measures, but some systems are more suited to the medical field than others. You’ll want to select a credit card processing company that offers additional security and participates in the American Medical Association’s Member Value Program, which partners with vendors to provide discounts and perks to medical practitioners. Discover the best credit card processors that can aid your practice.

Office managers

As you assemble your front-office team, you’ll need a reliable office manager to run the day-to-day operations of your practice. This person must be responsible and dedicated, but those qualities aren’t enough. You’ll need someone who also has the necessary experience.

“You need to decide how you’re going to staff your practice. Who’s going to help you run your practice? A friend? A nurse? Your spouse?” said Zetter. “The office manager needs vision and to take strategic actions to build the practice properly.”

You might also consider hiring a professional consultant to occasionally take stock of your practice once it opens and report back on its operations. A trustworthy office manager is a huge asset, but not a certain of a successfully run office. A professional firm contracting with your practice, however, has a financial stake in delivering an honest appraisal of how your practice is running. 

TipTip: Ensure your office is set up with one of the top business phone systems to help manage daily operations.

Ancillary services

Consider any ancillary services you may want to offer your patients based on your specialty and their needs. These services could be a great way to make some extra money, as well as to differentiate yourself from the competition and keep your patients happy. 

For example, Reiboldt said offering a service such as bone density tests on-site might be in your best interest, even though the necessary medical equipment and training for staff represent an additional expense. Additionally, certain EMR and PMS providers such as CareCloud can provide you tools to build an e-commerce arm into your medical practice. Read our full CareCloud medical software review to learn more.

“Many specialists and some primary care providers will want those ancillary services,” Reiboldt said. “Why? It’s a convenience thing for the patient, No. 1, and secondarily, it adds income to the practice, but it also adds expense.”

4. Prepare to open.

You must complete several logistical steps before you can open your doors, and they should be carried out in conjunction with the preceding actions. provide yourself plenty of time to get incorporated as a legal entity, obtain insurance and establish policies and procedures before you launch. Credentialing, for example, can take quite a while and depends on the pace at which other organizations operate.

Incorporating as a legal entity and obtaining a tax ID

This one is self-explanatory, but extraordinarily important. The main reason for incorporation is limited liability, which means if you’re sued, only the assets held by the company are subject to any risk. If you don’t incorporate, you’ll open up your personal assets to the threat of a lawsuit. 

Moreover, certain tax benefits are associated with each type of entity. Whether you incorporate as an S-corp or LLC, a C corp, or a general partnership, do your research on each type of entity and the potential advantages it offers your practice. To figure out which business entity is right for you, read our articles on choosing the best legal structure for your business and the process of becoming a corporation.

Credentialing physicians with payers

You will also need to get your practice’s healthcare providers credentialed to submit claims to the payers you’ll be working with. The credentialing process can take up to three months, but you may want to provide yourself up to five months in case something goes awry. 

You’ll need to navigate the process for each payer you plan on submitting claims to, which includes offering up information on each physician’s work history, proof of malpractice insurance, hospital privileges and attestations. It’s a time-consuming process, but certain medical billing services such as CareCloud can handle it for you. Read our full CareCloud medical billing review to learn more.

Establishing policies, procedures and compliance documentation

A set of responsible, current and verifiable policies and procedures, in addition to compliance with all legal regulations, is vital to your practice’s success. These standards should cover all your daily operations, including data entry, billing and interactions with patients. Since the healthcare environment is always changing, you’ll want to periodically update your policies and procedures as well to make sure they don’t become antiquated and ineffective.

Purchasing insurance

Every business owner understands the importance of insurance, but for medical professionals, it’s even more crucial. First, you’ll want medical malpractice insurance coverage. Beyond that, the bank issuing your loan will likely require you to adopt additional coverage such as workers’ compensation. “You have to start thinking about insurance,” Zetter said. “[You’ll need] malpractice and general liability. You will probably at least need life and liability insurance, just because bankers will require it.”

5. Open your doors and evaluate practice performance.

Congratulations! If you’ve reached this point, you’ve put in plenty of blood, sweat and tears and haven’t yet seen a dime in compensation for it. But your labor will all be worth it when you get the chance to cut that ribbon and welcome your first patients to your very own medical practice. It’s an accomplishment plenty of healthcare providers don’t get to enjoy in the modern medical industry, so pat yourself on the back.

Once your practice is established and running smoothly, you’ll want to put a mechanism for accountability into place. Sure, you’ve hired an office manager you trust, but how can you hold them to task, especially if you’re busy seeing patients day in and day out? Hire a consultant or an accountant who has experience monitoring medical practices to occasionally review operations and report back to you.

“After you set up a practice, there needs to be oversight of the practice beyond the office manager,” Zetter said. “How do you know every dime made it to the bank? You need to check that, so who makes sure that happens? Benchmark your practice and ensure there’s oversight.”

Why you should open your own medical practice

The inherent risk, upfront expenses and difficulty of opening your own medical practice may explain the breakneck pace of consolidation within the healthcare industry. According to the American Hospital Association, 3,483 U.S. hospitals belong to a multihospital system or diversified single hospital system. That trend is likely to continue through 2025, when the healthcare industry is projected to reach $6.99 billion in value.

The influence of large enterprise systems and big-name hospitals over smaller healthcare providers has grown as control of the industry has become concentrated in fewer hands. For many providers, joining these conglomerates seems to be the realistic choice. After spending so much money and time attending medical school, why go through the risk and trouble of starting a medical practice on your own when you could simply step into a well-paying corporate job, where business operations are already established and there are no overhead or startup costs for you?

For starters, when smaller, private practices open, it means more competition and a more widespread distribution of profits throughout the health industry. It also means that more healthcare providers are granted more autonomy, becoming free to determine their own workflows. Another byproduct of smaller practices is that they help expand healthcare access to local areas that might currently be underserved.

Also, the ability to be your own boss is a large draw for entrepreneurial providers who choose to enter private practice. The sense of ownership and agency that comes with running your own practice is unmatched in a bigger hospital system.

The good news is that, as difficult as it can be to get your practice started, it’s within reach if you have the right information and commit to the steps outlined above.

Types of medical practices to consider starting

When you decide that starting a private practice is in the cards for you, you have five types of medical practices to consider.

Solo practice

When you start a solo medical practice, you take on almost all the responsibility. This gives you full control of how your practice operates, but you may encounter higher startup costs for marketing and medical equipment, and you’ll certainly have to put in more hours since you’ll be working on both the business and clinical sides. On top of that, you’ll take on all the other risks of starting a business.

Group practice

With a group medical practice, you share the work burden with other medical professionals, so you’ll likely work less. These shorter hours come at the expense of the full control you have with a solo medical practice, but you may have easier access to working capital, thereby lowering your startup costs.

Hospital-owned practice

If you start a medical practice within a hospital network, you’ll work on a schedule and be subject to certain employee constraints, but you’ll have the hospital’s working capital and marketing resources at your disposal. You’ll also minimize the risk involved in starting a new business, though you may not have as much personal flexibility and freedom; you’ll likely have to work within boundaries set by a medical board. Joint ventures with hospitals account for an increasing percentage of urgent care clinic ownership, so hospital-owned businesses may be right for you if you’re interested in urgent care.

Federally qualified health center

If you want to start a medical practice within a federally qualified health center, your launch process will work almost the same as it does when you go the hospital-owned route. With federally qualified health centers, you may run up against slight caps on working capital based on federal resource allocation.

Academic health center

As with hospital-owned practices, when you start a medical practice within an academic health center, you minimize risk while sacrificing autonomy. Unlike with a federally qualified health center, though, you’ll experience few caps on working capital.

Medical practice considerations to keep in mind

Here are a few things to keep in mind while you deal with the whirlwind of starting your own medical practice. These are issues that can slow down or completely derail your progress leading up to opening day – or take you by surprise when you think your practice is up and running smoothly.

1. Construction needs 

If you need to perform construction on your office space, start as early as possible. Otherwise, you might find yourself well past your target opening date without a workable space. It’s always best to find a turnkey location where you can immediately set up shop, but those spaces are not always available. Evaluate your location early on and determine how much work needs to be done, then start hiring the contractors who will do it. With luck and planning, construction will be complete by the time you’re ready to start purchasing equipment.

“There are so many variables if you have to do a fit-out,” Zetter said. “It’s guaranteed: Construction always delays things. Even if you start planning in January that you’ll open in June, be prepared for August [if you have to do construction].”

2. Changing regulations and payer rules 

The healthcare industry is a highly regulated one, with complex rules surrounding virtually everything a provider does. For a small practice that doesn’t have legions of attorneys on retainer like a large hospital system does, it can be challenging to navigate the web of legal requirements and payer rules. However, it’s extremely important to understand what it takes to be in compliance. In fact, the rules governing the healthcare industry are constantly being changed and updated, so even if you’re in compliance right now, you’ll have to keep an eye on the future.

“There are very specific compliance manners for medical practices, mostly tied to government regulations, like privacy with HIPAA, and certainly being in compliance with the way you bill and treat Medicare and Medicaid patients,” Reiboldt said.

For example, HIPAA requires all healthcare IT products to abide by a certain level of security standards to safeguard patient data, which has become especially critical as digitization of the healthcare industry has increased, as has the likelihood of cyberattacks. It’s your job to ensure that every product you select meets HIPAA standards. Learn more about HIPAA and medical records retention.

3. Marketing 

With all the necessary preparation for opening day, followed by the hustle and bustle of treating patients once you do open, it can be easy to forget about marketing. Marketing and advertising are as fundamental to starting a private medical practice as they are to any new business, particularly for general practitioners who won’t be able to rely on a referral network for their patients.

“One thing you would plan for prior to opening and then continuously do after opening is marketing,” Reiboldt said. “This is a patient-caring, disease-treating business, but with that said, it is a business, and a practice needs to know how to market itself.” After all, how can you be a successful practice without attracting patients?

4. Advisors 

This guide for launching a medical practice, however informative, is certainly not exhaustive, and no amount of research can prepare you for everything that might happen as you get started. For that, you need real experience, and there are plenty of professionals who have experience in spades. Zetter said hiring a consultant with plenty of experience opening medical practices will save you money in the end and help you avoid costly and time-consuming mistakes.

“The biggest advice I can provide is [to] think about who are going to be your advisors,” said Zetter. “Yes, you will spend more money, but if you do it smart, you will set yourself up for success and spend less in the wrong. You want somebody who wants to be doing business with you 20 years from now when you’re ready to retire and sell your practice.”

Paul Inselman, a doctor and founder of the Creative Coaching medical marketing firm, listed a handful of advisors and professionals that it’s wise to retain in perpetuity.

  • Certified public accountant
  • Business attorney
  • Business coach
  • Insurance agent
  • Financial planner
  • Investment advisor

“Opening a new medical practice will be the most exhilarating and scary thing that you will ever do in your career,” Inselman said. “When we coach our clients on opening up a medical, dental chiropractic or any other healthcare practice, the first thing we advise is to assemble your team.”

5. Meaningful Use standards 

The healthcare industry has been undergoing a period of digitization, largely focused on the adoption of EMR and practice management software. Now known as Promoting Interoperability, the Meaningful Use standards prescribed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services lay out exactly what is expected of a medical practice’s use of an EMR system. You have to not only ensure that your EMR vendor is capable of meeting these demands, but that you implement the technology in such a way that your medical business is functioning up to the required standards. Otherwise, you could face reimbursement penalties.

Why opening a medical practice is daunting – but not impossible

Starting a private medical practice isn’t like starting any other type of business. After all, most other types of companies don’t literally have their customers’ lives in their hands, not to mention all the regulatory concerns this endeavor entails. With this guide, you have the fundamentals of what you need to know to start your practice. The journey will be long and arduous, but now, it’ll be easier – and likely worth it.

Killexams : Fantasy baseball: Head-to-head points mock draft

The ESPN fantasy baseball crew conducted their first fantasy baseball mock draft of the season, using the new default standard head-to-head points league scoring and roster settings.

That meant drafting rosters of 19 players per team (down from 26 in previous years), which put more of the spotlight on star-caliber baseball talents. Our fantasy experts also accounted for ESPN's scoring tweaks for pitchers; wins, previously worth 5 points, are now worth 2 apiece, while losses, previously worth minus-5, are now minus-2 points. Holds joined the fray with a 2-point valuation.

Default rosters now include 16 starters: seven pitchers of any kind along with a C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, three outfielders and a utility player (can be any position, and is also the only slot to allow a DH-only player). Bench spots are cut down to three.

Hitters score one point for every base reached via hits (total bases), as well as each walk, run, RBI and stolen base, and lose one point when they strike out. Pitchers earn a point for every out they record (three per inning) and an extra point for a strikeout, as well as five points for a win or a save. Pitchers lose two points per run allowed, one point per baserunner (hit or walk) and five points for a loss.

This draft was held on Monday., Feb. 13 and included Todd Zola, Eric Karabell, Jim McCormick, David Schoenfield, Derek Carty, AJ Mass, Pierre Becquey, Tristan H. Cockcroft, Kyle Soppe and James Best.

Killexams : Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft 1.0: Who goes in the first round?

The Yahoo fantasy baseball analystsAndy Behrens, Scott Pianowski and Dalton Del Don — took part in a first-round mock draft. Each analyst gets four picks in the first (to represent a 12-team league). But don't worry, this is just the first iteration of this mock — Rounds 2 and 3 are coming soon.

[Batter up: Join or create a Yahoo Fantasy Baseball league for free today]

Now, on to the picks:

He's hit .311 over the past four seasons with elite speed, power and run production — a perfect fantasy profile. — Behrens

Acuña Jr. already has a near-40/40 season to his credit, and he just turned 25. — Behrens

Ramirez is now firmly established as a player who will finish among the category leaders in four of the five standard fantasy stats. — Behrens

It should go without saying that a guy coming off a 62-homer season is a decent choice pretty much anywhere in the first round. — Behrens

The super soph brings category juice, unknown upside, and fun. The Mariners have built a solid lineup around Rodriguez, too — Pianowski

We still haven't seen his best season; Tucker's upside is AL MVP. One of the rare players capable of grabbing all five categories. — Pianowski

I know upside is the fun word, but floor matters, too. When has Mookie Betts ever let you down? He's the favorite to lead the league in runs scored for the fourth time. — Pianowski

Round 1, Pick 8: Yordan Alvarez, OF, Houston Astros

He's not a runner, but the rest of the Alvarez Statcast page is gloriously pinned to the right. As silly as Alvarez's stats were last year, he was actually unlucky with his batted-ball fortune. If that luck balances out, he can break the game. — Pianowski

[2023 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: C | 1B | 2B | 3B | SS | OF | SP | RP]

Still just 23 years old, Vlad is the favorite to lead MLB in batting average and will benefit from Toronto's new park dimensions. — Del Don

There's concern he'll stop running, and he's UTIL only, but Ohtani's bat is good enough to go here regardless. — Del Don

Round 1, Pick 11: Bo Bichette, SS, Toronto Blue Jays

Still just 24 years old, Bichette has said he wants to run more in 2023, and he'll also get a big boost from Toronto moving in its fences. — Del Don

Round 1, Pick 12: Gerrit Cole, SP, New York Yankees

He was incredibly unlucky last year for multiple reasons and should bounce back as fantasy's top pitcher in 2023. — Del Don

Stay tuned for the next iterations of our Expert Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft for 2023!

Killexams : Mock Draft Roundup 4.0: A Surprising Alternative Emerges

RB Bijan Robinson, Texas

"This might raise some eyebrows, especially with a handful of Day 1 receivers still on the board, but GM Eric DeCosta could add another outside target to pair with Rashod Bateman and Devin Duvernay via free agency and/or on Day 2. Robinson is my No. 9 prospect, pushed down the board by positional value, and the Ravens lean on the run like few other teams. We've now watched them look to free agents and practice-squaders at running back in back-to-back years, as J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards (both entering the final years of their deals) navigated various injuries. With Robinson available, coach John Harbaugh could make a splash.

"Robinson reminds me of Saquon Barkley. He forces missed tackles with ease (FBS-leading 91 in 2022), has burst through rushing lanes and can make plays in the pass game. If Lamar Jackson does indeed end up back in Baltimore, this would form a scary rushing unit for new offensive coordinator Todd Monken."

"Bijan and Lamar Jackson in the same backfield is just too much dynamism to pass up. Do you want to take your run game to unstoppable levels? Because adding the PFF College single-season broken tackle leader will do that."

"Bijan Robinson is special, and while he is probably one of the best players in this class, he could still be around late in Round 1 because he's a running back. And while the Ravens and offensive coordinator Greg Roman have parted ways, it's fair to assume that the team will still revolve around Lamar Jackson and the run game. J.K. Dobbins showed flashes after returning from ACL surgery, but there isn't a lot of depth behind him. A backfield of Jackson, Dobbins and Robinson is a problem for the rest of the AFC, even if Baltimore has more pressing needs here."


Sam Hodde/AP Photos

2022 stats: 13 games, 60 catches, 1,069 yards, 6 touchdowns

"Take a second and call up some highlights of Johnson running deep crossers -- they're awesome. His speed on deeper routes is consistent and would create space for guys like tight end Mark Andrews to operate."

"The Ravens were hoping for a second-year breakout from 2021 first-round pick Rashod Bateman in 2022, but that never materialized due to injury as Lamar Jackson threw to Devin Duvernay and Demarcus Robinson much more than they had originally planned. Selecting an athletic playmaker in TCU's Quentin Johnson would add a vertical threat to the wide receiver room that they lost in 2022 when they traded Marquise Brown to Arizona."

"Baltimore's never-ending quest to find a receiver to pair with Lamar Jackson continues with Johnston. He's not the most fluid athlete nor the most polished route runner, but Johnston is a nightmare on slants underneath and can get over the top of a defense. I think he'd pair well with Lamar."

WR Jordan Addison, USC


Mark J. Terrill/AP Photos

"The Ravens have really struggled offensively when Rashod Bateman has been out of the lineup. They need to find another viable receiver for Lamar Jackson. Jordan Addison has game-breaking speed, and he had an incredible 2021 campaign with 17 touchdowns. He's a major reason why Kenny Pickett was drafted in the first round."

CB Cam Smith, South Carolina


Artie Walker Jr./AP Photos

"With Marcus Peters entering free agency, the Ravens can add Smith to play opposite Marlon Humphrey in a division with tons of talented receivers."

CB Deonte Banks, Maryland


Julio Cortez/AP Photos

2022 stats: 12 games, 38 tackles, 1 interception, 8 passes defended

"Baltimore stays in-state to find its boundary cornerback replacement for Marcus Peters. Banks is lower on my personal board, but I understand why a team looking for boundary help would be interested. Once teams get through that initial wave of blue-chip talent, there is a large pool of players who could be justified in the first round."

CB Christian Gonzalez, Oregon

2022 stats: 12 games, 50 tackles, 4 interceptions, 7 passes defensed


Godofredo A. Vásquez/AP Photos

"The Ravens add youth to their secondary with Gonzalez, whose film was super clean in 2022."

WR Jalin Hyatt, Tennessee

2022 stats: 12 games, 67 catches, 1,267 yards, 15 touchdowns


Wade Payne/AP Photos

"For the third time in five years, the Ravens select a receiver in the first round. After trading Marquise Brown (No. 25 overall, 2019) during Thursday night's festivities last year, Baltimore could be looking for a speedster to play with 2021 first-rounder Rashod Bateman (No. 27). Hyatt possesses the pure speed to stretch defenses vertically."

WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Ohio State

_2022 stats: 3 games, 5 catches, 43 yards, 0 touchdowns _

Killexams : 2023 NFL Mock Draft from 'With the First Pick' podcast: Four QBs go in top 10 in first edition of joint mock

Round 1 - Pick 1

Georgia • Jr • 6'3" / 300 lbs

Projected Team

FORMER VIKINGS GM RICK SPIELMAN: Spielman was deciding between Jalen Carter and Will Anderson Jr. to kick off the draft. "I went with Carter because [the Bears] need players all over the place, but they need, definitely, on the defensive side of the ball," he said. "To me, when you look at the depth of this draft, I think there are some very good pass rushers ... and the hardest position to fill and find is that dominant undertackle, or three technique. ... Jalen Carter can be as good as he wants to be and the most dominant defensive player in this draft class."

Round 1 - Pick 2

Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 194 lbs

Projected Team

NFL DRAFT ANALYST RYAN WILSON: Wilson went with Bryce Young at QB1, and Josh Edwards explained why he agreed with the pick. "I understand the concerns about his size. It's unprecedented to have a quarterback of that size, that stature, in the NFL, but the game is a little bit different. You can have a point guard at the quarterback position distributing the ball and really utilizing the targets that you're able to build on that side of the ball. I have less of a problem with his size today than maybe a decade ago, but I understand that it's not going to be one size fits all where he's going to be a fit for every team."

Round 1 - Pick 3

Alabama • Jr • 6'4" / 243 lbs

Projected Team

NFL DRAFT ANALYST CHRIS TRAPASSO: If not for Kyler Murray's contract situation, Trapasso said it wouldn't be crazy if the Cardinals took a QB. But with Murray seemingly locked in with the Cardinals, Trapasso went with Will Anderson Jr. at No. 3. "With J.J. Watt retiring, it's a clear-cut need," he said. "They still need a premier pass rusher in this defense, and they've needed it for a while. They got good production from J.J. Watt late in his career, but Will Anderson has looked like a future top-five pick really since he stepped foot on [Alabama's campus]."

Round 1 - Pick 4

Kentucky • Sr • 6'3" / 232 lbs

Projected Team

NFL DRAFT ANALYST JOSH EDWARDS: Edwards understands Will Levis did not have a great season, but he attributes a lot of that to a poor offensive line, lackluster offensive weapons and Levis playing injured for much of the campaign. So, he's OK with making Levis the second QB taken in four picks: "This is a guy that has great size, he's got elite arm strength, he's got elite mobility," Edwards said. "I think if he's put in the proper situation -- say, Indianapolis for example ... [he could thrive] if you put him behind a quality offensive line and you make the right coaching hires."

Round 1 - Pick 5

Texas Tech • Sr • 6'6" / 275 lbs

Projected Team

SPIELMAN: There were two solid defensive options for Spielman to choose from here: Tyree Wilson and Myles Murphy. He's why he went with Wilson: "He's bigger, he has so much more upside. I think when we go down to the Senior Bowl, he's really going to show up. He is a unique athlete for how tall he is, and his bend in pass rush and his ability to burst to the quarterback is pretty unique. ... I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being the best pass rusher out of this draft before it's all said and done."

Clemson • Jr • 6'5" / 275 lbs

Projected Team

WILSON: For the sake of time, the guys quickly covered Myles Murphy to the Lions, but Wilson did expand on that selection in his most recent mock draft: "Murphy won't be 21 until next spring, and while we'd like to see him play with more consistency ... he won't be 21 until next spring. On top of that, when he's on, he's hard to stop, which makes him such an interesting prospect."

Round 1 - Pick 7

Ohio State • Jr • 6'3" / 218 lbs

Projected Team
Las Vegas

TRAPASSO: Derek Carr isn't going to be in Las Vegas next year, so Trapasso decided to select his replacement in C.J. Stroud. "This was kind of a home-run pick for me. ... The improvisation isn't really there with C.J. Stroud, but the pocket passing, the decision-making, accuracy to all levels could really be accentuated with Josh McDaniels and the Raiders."

Round 1 - Pick 8

Northwestern • Jr • 6'4" / 315 lbs

Projected Team

EDWARDS: Here's the scouting report on the Northwestern offensive lineman from his CBS Sports prospect profile. "Skoronski does a good job of adjusting his hands and feet once engaged. ... He can do a better job of playing balanced and absorbing contact with his hands. Although he plays left tackle, some question whether or not he would be best served moving inside to guard or center. ... In a league starved for quality offensive tackle play, Skoronski should and probably will get a chance to play on the edge first."

Round 1 - Pick 9

Florida • Soph • 6'4" / 232 lbs

Projected Team

SPIELMAN: Here's the ex-Vikings GM's reasoning for making Anthony Richardson the fourth quarterback taken in the top 10. "They have to go get a franchise quarterback, and they have to go young. ... If everything else checks out through this pre-draft process -- his study habits, his ability to want to be an NFL quarterback and what it takes to be an NFL quarterback -- there's no question about the arm talent, there's no question about the athletic skillset. ... He has potentially the most upside out of any of these quarterbacks."

Ohio State • Jr • 6'6" / 310 lbs

Projected Team

WILSON: Wilson is not sure how much longer Lane Johnson will play -- the 32-year-old has dealt with some injuries in his career -- so he drafted his potential replacement in Paris Johnson Jr. "[Johnson] may play five more years, he may play two more years; either way you have Paris Johnson, who can also play inside if you need him in the short term."

Round 1 - Pick 11

Clemson • Jr • 6'3" / 240 lbs

Projected Team

TRAPASSO: The Titans have a lot of needs, and are they going to go wide receiver again after taking Treylon Burks last year? In this mock, Trapasso has them going linebacker with Trenton Simpson. "The linebacker position for them is pretty barren. ... With Trenton Simpson, I just think he kind of fits the profile of a top-half-of-the-first-round type linebacker. He's long, he played outside linebacker rushing the passer, he's good in coverage, he's got the range. I think he's gonna test well at the combine. So, he just feels like another high-caliber talent for this defense that without Harold Landry this season, was really just Jeffery Simmons and not much else."

Clemson • Soph • 6'5" / 305 lbs

Projected Team

EDWARDS: Edwards knows the quickest path to get to the quarterback is up the middle. He also knows it's hard to find quality interior defensive linemen. Those are among the reasons he has the Texans selecting Bryan Bresee with the second of their two first-round picks. "You'd like to see a little bit more urgency up the middle (from Bresee), but this is a guy that was the No. 1 recruit coming out of high school, he's got a lot of natural ability, and you're just taking a chance on a quality interior defensive lineman that's going to be able to impact your pass rush moving forward."

Round 1 - Pick 13

Georgia • Soph • 6'4" / 310 lbs

Projected Team
N.Y. Jets

SPIELMAN: Spielman believes the Jets are "definitely" going to go get a veteran QB this offseason, so he's grabbing Broderick Jones to provide protection for whomever is under center. "This kid has a lot of upside. He has to get a little stronger, but his feet, his movement skills, it's everything you're looking for in a left tackle. He may not be instant Day 1 starter, but I think this guy has tremendous upside and will eventually evolve into a pretty good player."

Round 1 - Pick 14

TCU • Jr • 6'4" / 215 lbs

Projected Team
New England

WILSON: The Patriots are in need of offensive line help, but Wilson's getting them a talented wide receiver who will help whomever is calling plays in New England. Chris Trapasso likes the selection. "Certainly from a what-this-team-needs perspective, Quentin Johnston, being the first receiver off the board, vertical threat for this offense makes sense."

Round 1 - Pick 15

Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 193 lbs

Projected Team
Green Bay

TRAPASSO: Trapasso went for the defensive back from Alabama, and Spielman understands why the Packers would be intrigued. "He's a good football player. They played him in that star position [at Alabama], which is kind of like a (nickel) position. I think his best position is going to be free safety. He has range, he'll come up and hit, he's an effective blitzer when they do send him to affect the quarterback. ... He has all the ability to be a very good free safety in this league."

Round 1 - Pick 16

Penn State • Jr • 6'2" / 194 lbs

Projected Team

EDWARDS: Here's why Edwards made Joey Porter Jr. the first cornerback selected: "Joey Porter has a lot of length, they desperately need help at the cornerback position. That defense looked a little bit better this year than it looked a year ago, but not quite as good as they were two years ago. So, to add more talent on that backend, I think you're kind of fortifying what has become a strength for them until you do get that quarterback into place."

Round 1 - Pick 17

Georgia • Soph • 6'2" / 210 lbs

Projected Team

SPIELMAN: Spielman thought it was too early to draft Jordan Addison, which would have paired him with former Pitt teammate and current Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett. Instead, he went with Kelee Ringo. "Mike Tomlin has a history of adding guys with this much talent who maybe didn't play as well, and he has a tendency to bring the best out of players. And I think if he got a hold of Ringo, that he is going to be an excellent corner in that defense, especially if Mike Tomlin gets his hands on him."

Round 1 - Pick 18

Oregon • Soph • 6'2" / 201 lbs

Projected Team

WILSON: Wilson doubled up on defense for the Lions by taking Myles Murphy at No. 6 and Christian Gonzalez here. Trapasso thinks this is around the right range for the Oregon cornerback. "He's over 6-foot, he's around 200 pounds. I think he's good in man, in zone, pretty sure tackler on the outside. A defense in Detroit that's ascending but still needs a lot of infusion of talent. Given how the cornerback board fell, I think this is just right."

Round 1 - Pick 19

Notre Dame • Jr • 6'4" / 265 lbs

Projected Team
Tampa Bay

TRAPASSO: Trapasso doesn't know what the Buccaneers will do at the quarterback position, but whoever is under center needs talented pass-catchers to throw to. That's why he has Tampa Bay taking tight end Michael Mayer. "He's a high-floor player, great receiver, can get open, very explosive in his routes, doesn't drop a lot of footballs, decent three-down player. The Buccaneers, if they don't have Tom Brady, just need to keep adding talent, and Michael Mayer, to me, is the best tight end in the draft."

Round 1 - Pick 20

USC • Jr • 6'0" / 175 lbs

Projected Team

EDWARDS: Edwards doesn't think the draft board fell in the Seahawks' favor, so he thinks they would be trying to trade out of this spot if this happened on draft night. With no trades in this mock, Edwards spurned defensive help to select CBS Sports' No. 1 ranked wide receiver in Jordan Addison. "Addison is a fantastic player. He's going to be the third wide receiver for this team until Tyler Lockett moves on, and when he does, he's going to be a fantastic complement to DK Metcalf."

Round 1 - Pick 21

South Carolina • Jr • 6'0" / 188 lbs

Projected Team

SPIELMAN: Easy pick here for Spielman, who likes the prospect and the fit. "You're gonna have to go corner there. Cam Smith's too good of a football player to be sitting here this low. Cam Smith may end up going higher depending on how these corners shake out once we get through the combine and workouts and everything. But this is a very good football player that, to me, can be a shutdown corner in the league. ... The value I got at [No. 21], to get this guy, I think is one of the better values out of this mock draft."

Round 1 - Pick 23

Florida • Jr • 6'5" / 347 lbs

Projected Team
N.Y. Giants

WILSON: O'Cyrus Torrence is the first interior offensive lineman to go off the board, and for good reason. "He feels like a solid plug-and-play guy. Transfer who didn't look out of sorts in Year 1 in the SEC, and he helps that offensive line, helps Daniel Jones, helps Saquon Barkley."

Round 1 - Pick 24

Illinois • Jr • 6'0" / 180 lbs

Projected Team

TRAPASSO: Yet another cornerback goes off the board in Devon Witherspoon. Spielman gave his thoughts on the Illinois cornerback. "I love him as a football player, and he plays a lot bigger than his size. ... This guy is physical, he has ball skills. I thought besides Joey Porter Jr., he was the best corner in the Big Ten this year."

Round 1 - Pick 25

Georgia • Jr • 6'7" / 270 lbs

EDWARDS: You can never have enough targets for Justin Herbert, plus you get some major blocking ability from Darnell Washington. "You're upgrading the run blocking, you're getting a huge target that's gonna be used in the red zone, down the field, chain-moving situations. I just think you're adding more weapons to that offense," Edwards said.

Round 1 - Pick 26

Arkansas • Jr • 6'5" / 233 lbs

Projected Team

SPIELMAN: Drew Sanders was a five-star recruit who played mostly outside linebacker at Alabama. Then he transferred to Arkansas, moved inside and became a first-team All-American. Spielman likes what he sees from this prospect. "[The versatility] is phenomenal. Imagine what Dan Quinn would do with an athlete like this kid, because he can rush the passer, he can play the run, he can drop in coverage. He's 6-5, I think he's going to be around 240 [pounds]. I think he's just too unique of an athlete."

Round 1 - Pick 27

Oklahoma • Jr • 6'5" / 315 lbs

Projected Team

WILSON: The Bengals made protecting Joe Burrow priority No. 1 this offseason ... only for multiple offensive linemen to get hurt before or during the playoffs. Wilson says the Bengals could probably use Anton Harrison right now. Here's what he had to say about Harrison is his most recent mock draft: "There was some thought that Harrison might return to Oklahoma for an NIL deal that was too good to pass up, but he's instead opted for the NFL. He's one of the top tackles in the class, and now the question is whether he finds his way into Round 1 or goes early on Day 2."

Round 1 - Pick 28

Kansas State • Jr • 6'4" / 255 lbs

Projected Team

TRAPASSO: Trapasso admitted that there was a lot of pressure being the mock Vikings general manager given Spielman's past. Trapasso ended up going with Felix Anudike-Uzomah, and Spielman's liked what he's seen from the Kansas State edge rusher. "I do like this kid a lot. I thought he played hard. I went down and watched him; I wanted to see him against [Tyler] Steen, the Alabama left tackle. ... When you put him outside the tackle, he can utilize his speed and his athletic skillset. And the kid plays hard. He was fun to watch because his motor was nonstop, so I'm not going to bash this pick because I like this player."

Texas A&M • Jr • 6'3" / 195 lbs

Projected Team

EDWARDS: The board didn't exactly fall in the Broncos' favor, but Edwards liked the idea of Antonio Johnson joining Justin Simmons in the Denver secondary. "He's a bigger safety, so you can play him in sub-packages. He plays sideline to sideline. He's not gonna get stuck in traffic. He's a good communicator, good leadership, all that kind of stuff."

Boston College • Sr • 5'10" / 172 lbs

Projected Team

SPIELMAN: Spielman thinks the one thing the Bills are missing on offense is a slot receiver, and after going back and forth between Boston College's Zay Flowers and North Carolina's Josh Downs, Spielman ended up going with Flowers. "This kid reminded me of a poor man's [Jahan] Dotson. I don't think he's as good as Dotson when he came out of Penn State last year, but this kid is a very good football player. And for a not very talented football team and they did not have a very talented quarterback, this kid took advantage of every opportunity that he had. And he, to me, almost carried that offense just by getting the ball in his hands.

Round 1 - Pick 31

Texas • Jr • 6'0" / 220 lbs

Projected Team
Kansas City

WILSON: The Chiefs go back to the well at running back with Bijan Robinson. Josh Edwards loves the pick ... if Robinson actually makes it this far. "You talk about putting that kind of talent in Andy Reid's scheme, I mean that's almost unfair. ... He's the best running back prospect we've seen since Saquon Barkley, so you put that in Kansas City's offense, that's going to open up a lot of things. He's a great pass-catcher, he's a good [pass] blocker, he's got it all. I don't have any real weaknesses for him, so it's almost unfair to see him fall to Kansas City."

Round 1 - Pick 32

Wake Forest • Sr • 6'3" / 290 lbs

Projected Team

TRAPASSO: Every year, Trapasso says that late in the first round, there are some surprising names based on consensus prospect rankings. To Spielman's surprise, Trapasso went with one of those players in Kobie Turner. Here's his explanation: "The Eagles with Ndamukong Suh, Linval Joseph, Fletcher Cox -- they're pretty old up front on the interior. ... [Turner is] 6-3, 290, pretty advanced pass-rusher. Maybe not high upside, but I think [GM] Howie Roseman usually leans either offensive line or defensive line in the first round. They don't need him to be a great player immediately with Javon Hargrave there, but I think over the long term, this is kind of a Howie Roseman pick given how old they are at that other defensive tackle spot."
