When my friends, family and teachers began asking me “what is mock trial,” I consistently struggled to find the right answer. My standard five word response, “It’s like a fake trial,” didn’t quite seem to cover it.

On a surface level, mock trial is a unique opportunity for high schoolers to get engaged with the legal world. For me, it was the perfect chance to explore a field I had been interested in since childhood.

Every year, our team spent months exploring the 90-page case packets, picking apart witness statements and evidentiary rules down to small semantic differences. During hundreds of hours of practice, those packets became the elements of a real trial: direct and cross examinations, pretrial motions and speeches. In January and February, we finally put that analysis into practice, running the case against other teams in our county in modified trials at local courthouses.

Throughout the pandemic, our competition transitioned to an online format. While those years of competing were still filled with invaluable experiences, they were definitely different from the in-person trials we have returned to this year. It has made students appreciate our in-person competition format. The experience is an incredible one and would not be possible without the legal professionals and teachers who dedicate time to the program (thank you Kevin and Ms. Kalinski!).

Mock trial is a series of well-handled mistakes. It is almost unquestionable that mistakes will occur in each trial, and handling those missteps is the crux of the competition. That aspect of the activity forces participants to take mistakes in stride and learn from them.

I spent the better part of my middle school years refusing to raise my hand, paralyzed by the fear of making a mistake. That mindset carried through to my freshman year, during which I was often hesitant to offer my ideas in class for fear of being wrong. But that was completely different in mock trial. Throughout the year, older students and mentors demonstrated growth through mistakes, and celebrated that process as a mark of effort or success.

Through mock trial, those same people taught me that taking a risk and being incorrect is far more valuable than not speaking up. To paraphrase what my coach told me during my first year, you can be the smartest person in the courtroom, but it doesn’t help anyone if you don’t speak up. Mock trial requires loudly pronouncing your argument to a waiting audience, even if you might be incorrect.

Most importantly, mock trial is a community. Through late-night Zoom calls, arguments over objections and hours of repetitive practice, our team has forged a multilaterally supportive community, without which I never would have been able to take advantage of mock trial’s learning opportunities or experience those lessons.

Beyond just our team, mock trial brings students from all schools and backgrounds together to compete. My teammates and I have created inter-team friendships, allowing for connections between students and schools who care about exploring the law. As competitive as it can be, the energy in the courthouse between trials is one filled with positivity and excitement.

Some of my friends have (lightheartedly) poked fun at mock trial, ironically comparing it to our school’s sports teams because of how seriously students take it. While it definitely isn’t a sport, it’s a unique way to experience those elements of community and collaborative effort.

Each competition is a fake trial, but they are also much more than that. They couldn’t possibly be summarized in five words. They are experience, they are personal growth and they are community.

Killexams : Dvorchak's 2023 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

1. Chicago Bears

Will Anderson, EDGE, Alabama

There are still a lot of dominoes to fall at quarterback in free agency and via trades. Once Aaron Rodgers and Derek Carr have landing spots, predicting a trade for the No. 1 pick will be possible. Until then, I'm waiting to forecast trades. If things break awkwardly for the Bears, they could be stuck at the top of the draft anyway. There are worse positions to be in as Anderson is an elite pass-rusher who will fit well in Matt Eberflus's defense.

2. Houston Texans

Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

Young is still the favorite to be the top pick at most sportsbooks and Houston could even trade up to the 1.01 if they want him significantly more than C.J. Stroud or Will Levis. If Young is gone, Stroud is likely to be the next man up. Seeking the face of their franchise, Houston's only choice at this spot is quarterback.

3. Arizona Cardinals

Jalen Carter, DT, Georgia

Based on the league's highest-paid defenders, the NFL has placed an emphasis on EDGE defenders over interior defensive linemen, giving Anderson slightly higher odds of coming off the board first. However, Carter is a menace to opposing quarterbacks, separating him from the average defensive tackle. Pro Football Focus graded him as their No. 2 and No. 1 pass-rushing defensive lineman in the past two years.

4. Indianapolis Colts

C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

Had I been projecting trades, Indy moving up to No. 1 to get a quarterback would have been my first prediction. After churning through veterans for a few years, it's time for them to take a shot on a rookie. Stroud tossed 85 scores in two seasons as the Buckeye's starter and even has an outside chance to be the first quarterback off the board.

5. Seattle Seahawks

Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech

Barring a surprising Will Levis selection by one of the QB-needy teams ahead of Seattle, it's hard to see any other combination of players having their names called in the first four picks. The Seahawks' needs depend entirely upon what they do with Geno Smith, who is a free agent. If he is brought back (I think he will be), the Seahawks are likely zeroed in on a pass-rusher here.

6. Detroit Lions (via the Rams)

Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon

A year after adding Aidan Hutchinson to their defensive line, the Lions are in desperate need of help in their secondary. Devon Witherspoon and Joey Porter are both candidates to go here, but the mild consensus seems to have Gonzalez as the top corner in the draft.

7. Las Vegas Raiders

Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

The Raiders have not traded for Aaron Rodgers yet, so quarterback remains a need for them. If that holds until the draft, it's hard to see them cutting Derek Carr only to trot out Jarrett Stidham or Jimmy Garoppolo for a season. Once their quarterback situation becomes more clear, this pick will be easier to predict. For now, I see them making a gamble on the upside that Carr couldn't deliver them.

8. Atlanta Falcons

Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

The Falcons have had the league's saddest excuse for a pass-rush for multiple years. They are also in need of a quarterback. With the board shaking out this way, that will have to wait. Murphy has an elite combination of size and speed, giving the Falcons some much-needed juice in their front seven.

9. Carolina Panthers

Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida

Richardson might be a reach here. Grinding the Mocks has his ADP at 15. However, the Panthers can't keep taking shortcuts at quarterback. Giving Frank Reich a toolsy quarterback teeming with upside is a great way for Carolina to turn the page.

10. Philadelphia Eagles (via the Saints)

Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois

What an absurd luxury it must be to have a Super Bowl-caliber roster and a top-10 pick, plus another selection at the end of the first. Even though the Eagles are loaded, I don't see them spending this pick frivolously. They could even trade back. Without projecting that, their best bet is it replace free agent James Bradberry with an aggressive outside corner.

11. Tennessee Titans

Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

Left tackle Taylor Lewan has already said he expects to be cut by the Titans and is mulling retirement. That leaves a massive hole on Tennesee's roster and first-year GM Ran Carthon would be sprinting to the podium to take Johnson if he is still available.

12. Houston Texans (via the Browns)

Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

All signs point to Houston moving on from Brandin Cooks in the offseason, leaving them with a barren receiver room. Johnson ranked third among all Power Five receivers who declared for the draft in yards per route run. Listed at 6'4/215, he also has prototypical size to match his blazing speed. Pairing Stroud and Johnson on Day One would be a monstrous win for Houston.

13. New York Jets

Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

The Jets have four tackles hitting free agency in the spring. Former first-round left tackle Mekhi Becton has appeared in one game over the past two years. Having hit home runs at running back and receiver last year, Jets GM Joe Douglas will want to round out his offense with an anchor on the offensive line.

14. New England Patriots

Joey Porter, CB, Penn State

Both Matt Miller and Todd McShay have Porter to the Patriots. McShay even has him as the first corner off the board. Normally a strength of New England's defense, cornerback was a sore spot for Bill Belichick in 2022. Porter's physical brand of play would be perfect for Belichick's secondary.

15. Green Bay Packers

Jordan Addison, WR, USC

It would be ironic for the Packers to finally draft a wide receiver in the same offseason Aaron Rodgers leaves. However, if they want any chance of seeing Jordan Love succeed, he needs more firepower at receiver.

16. Washington Commanders

Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

The Commanders are strong contenders to take a quarterback, but they will need to make a significant trade to acquire their man. Instead, this scenario sees them roll with Sam Howell and bolster their defense with a top-flight corner.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers

Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

Kenny Pickett flopped as a rookie, but Pittsburgh needs to deliver him a fair shake with an improved offensive line. If he continues to struggle with better protection, it could be time to move on next year.

18. Detroit Lions

Lukas Van Ness, EDGE, Iowa

The Lions are likely looking at taking a pass-rusher and a corner with their two first-round picks. Given their investment in Hutchinson, it makes sense for them to hold off on another EDGE until the second time they take the podium.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

Like the Commanders, the Bucs will be exploring avenues to get a quarterback via the draft unless they make a drastic move before the end of April. If they stay put, investing in their secondary, which is set to lose multiple corners in free agency, is a solid consolation prize for missing out on a quarterback.

20. Seattle Seahawks

O'Cyrus Torrence, G, Florida

The Seahawks spent the 2022 draft upgrading their tackles. This time around they will get the chance to Boost the interior of their offensive line. Torrence is almost unanimously considered the best interior offensive line prospect this year.

21. Los Angeles Chargers

Calijah Kancey, DT, Pittsburgh

Kancey will be drafted for his pass-rushing chops but can contribute in run-defense as well. PFF graded him as their No. 1 Power Five defensive lineman against the pass and No. 20 against the run last year. His ability to play in all phases allows his to fill multiple needs for the Chargers.

22. Baltimore Ravens

Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

Rashod Bateman improved in his second season. Even if he continues to grow, the Ravens are in desperate need of a second viable receiver. Bateman has played almost exclusively on the outside in Baltimore, perfectly positioning JSN to take on slot duties as a Raven.

23. Minnesota Vikings

Deonte Banks, CB, Maryland

Wide receiver is also on the table here, but the Vikings' massacre at the hands of Daniel Jones to end their season should steer them in the direction of cornerback. Grinding the Mocks has a notable drop-off after the sixth corner comes off the board and PFF sees Banks as the end of an even smaller tier.

24. Jacksonville Jaguars

Brian Branch, S, Alabama

Pass-defense was an issue for the Jags last year and Branch is the highest-graded corner or safety remaining on most boards. Branch's versatility will be a huge draw for the Jags, who need help at multiple spots in their secondary.

25. New York Giants

Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

No team needs a No. 1 receiver more than the Giants and there are multiple candidates to fill that role with this pick. What Flowers (5'7/178) lacks in size he makes up for in production. He earned a 93rd percentile Dominator Rating in his final season at Boston College.

26. Dallas Cowboys

Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

The Cowboys already have one top-end receiver in CeeDee Lamb, but their options beyond him proved to be subpar replacements for Amari Cooper. They were banking on big plays from 33-year-old T.Y. Hilton in the playoffs.

27. Buffalo Bills

Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

Finding a landing spot for Robinson is nearly impossible because of how excellent of a prospect he is. Per PFF, Robinson racked up 104 broken tackles in 2022. That was 21 more than any other back. He's also a strong receiver. Robinson plays a devalued position in the modern NFL, but he is on par with Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott as a prospect.

28. Cincinnati Bengals

Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

The Bengals will have to address their offensive line via free agency and the draft, but Mayer has the talent of a top-20 selection and also fills a massive need for them. Three Cincinnati tight ends are about to enter free agency, including Hayden Hurst.

29. New Orleans (via the 49ers)

Bryan Bresse, DT, Clemson

The Saints ranked 29th in pressure rate in 2022. They have four defensive tackles who are set to hit free agency. Bresse fills that need on their roster and does his best work against the pass.

30. Philadelphia Eagles

Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina

Howie Roseman and the Philly front office have never shied away from doubling down on the strengths of the roster. The Eagles have an elite receiver duo but not much going on behind A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith on the depth chart. Giving Jalen Hurts a third receiver to throw to would supercharge an already-elite offense.

31. Kansas City Chiefs

Keion White, EDGE, Georgia Tech

The Chiefs can save $22 million by cutting Frank Clark. Though Clark had a strong postseason, his regular season shortcomings make his release almost inevitable. Wide receiver was also a strong contender at this spot but the Downs pick at No. 30 moved Kansas City to EDGE.

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."

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

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

"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."

Killexams : WNBA mock draft 2023: Picks and player projections

Free agency moves, trades and big stretch-run performances from college players all continue to impact ESPN's 2023 WNBA mock draft. And thanks in part to exact trades involving draft picks, our fourth update comes just a week after our previous projection.

We still don't know how many four-year seniors might take the option of coming back for a fifth season because of the pandemic-affected 2020-21 academic year, so there is no guarantee all of the players in this mock draft will make themselves eligible for the draft.

Most players have said publicly that they will make that decision after their college seasons end, in which case we considered then for inclusion. Senior post player Mackenzie Holmes of the No. 2 Indiana Hoosiers has not declared for certain she will return to college, but told ESPN she is very strongly leaning that direction. For now, we didn't include her for draft consideration. Also, at this point, no draft-eligible juniors have publicly said they will declare, so they weren't included, either.

Top selection Aliyah Boston was the only first-round pick from the No. 1 South Carolina Gamecocks in our first three mock drafts. But Gamecocks defensive specialist Brea Beal joins Boston in the first round this time, while another South Carolina guard, Zia Cooke, also received consideration.

The three-round draft is scheduled to be held April 10.

First round

play

Aliyah Boston thwarts LSU's fastbreak with huge block

Aliyah Boston shows off her defensive prowess with a big-time block.

South Carolina Gamecocks | forward | 6-foot-5 | senior

Boston is not just pro-ready from a playing perspective, but also in her leadership. And she won't shy from having a lot put on her shoulders by the Fever, who hope to finally get back to the franchise they used to be. Boston's stats (13.4 PPG, 9.9 RPG) have dropped from last season because of the Gamecocks' depth, but she's an even better overall player who has studied the WNBA and knows what she need to add and Boost on at the next level.

Maryland Terps | guard | 6-foot-3 | senior

Miller's size, quickness and ability to run the floor could be big assets for a Lynx team remaking itself after Sylvia Fowles' retirement. Minnesota might debate between Miller and Haley Jones at this pick. If the Lynx opt for Miller, who is averaging 19.8 points and 6.6 rebounds, she will deliver them an explosive transition player who is hard to guard and appears to have a high ceiling.

Stanford Cardinal | guard | 6-foot-1 | senior

The Wings might see Jones as having elite playmaker potential without necessarily needing to score a lot to have a big impact on the game. She is averaging 13.3 points, 9.0 rebounds and 3.9 assists for Stanford, which needs her to do a lot of everything. Jones' lack of 3-point shooting -- 3 of 29 this season and 23 of 102 in her Stanford career -- might not be a big concern for Dallas.

Diamond Miller drops in smooth layup

Maryland's Diamond Miller gets inside and scores to increase the Terrapins' lead.

Villanova Wildcats | forward | 6-foot-2 | senior

Siegrist moves up the draft board in part because her numbers keep getting bigger: She leads Division I basketball in scoring (29.4 PPG) while shooting 53.8% from the field and averages 9.3 rebounds. The Mystics are a strong defensive team that could get an offensive boost from Siegrist, who had a 50-point game on 20-of-26 shooting on Feb. 11. Washington might see some of Elena Delle Donne in Siegrist, even if she's not as tall.

Tennessee Lady Vols | forward | 6-foot-2 | senior

Jackson, who is averaging 18.2 PPG, has always been a reliable scorer who is good at getting to the rim. She is averaging 5.9 RPG and has tantalizing room for growth on the defensive end, something new Wings coach Latricia Trammell specializes in and teaches well.

Tennessee Lady Vols | guard | 6-foot-2 | senior

Horston is averaging 15.5 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists, and might be a "best player available" pick for the Dream at this point in the draft. Her size, length and hustle also should fit into the style Atlanta coach Tanisha Wright hopes to play.

South Carolina Gamecocks | guard | 6-foot-1 | senior

General manager Lin Dunn's preference for great defensive players might mesh with Beal's reputation as one of the most elite defenders in college. Beal averages just 5.6 PPG -- along with 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists -- but the Gamecocks don't need her to score. Indiana might keep Beal and South Carolina teammate Boston together in the WNBA.

South Carolina's bench loves Brea Beal's 3-pointer

Brea Beal beats the third-quarter buzzer with a nice 3-pointer.

Virginia Tech Hokies | center | 6-foot-6 | senior

Kitley has been like clockwork with her production: 18.0 PPG, 10.8 RPG and 2.1 BPG this season, much like her previous two years. She would deliver the Dream a legit big player inside who has shown she can run the floor, which she will need to do well to make the transition to the WNBA.

UCLA Bruins | guard | 5-foot-9 | senior

Osborne is a tireless defender who also averages 15.5 PPG, 5.6 RPG and 2.8 APG. She could help a Storm squad moving on after legendary point guard Sue Bird's retirement. Osborne has made 212 3-pointers in her Bruins career and has filled a leadership role for UCLA.

Iowa State Cyclones | forward/guard | 6-foot-1 | senior

Joens, one of the greatest scorers in Big 12 history, is 167 points shy of 3,000 for her career. She has made 317 3-pointers at Iowa State while shooting almost 36% from behind the arc, but also never shies from battling inside. At 20.2 PPG and 9.1 RPG, Joens has a high motor and never stops moving -- the type of player new Sparks coach Curt Miller can appreciate.

Oklahoma Sooners | forward | 6-foot-0 | senior

Williams is the leading scorer (16.0 PPG) and second-leading rebounder (6.2 RPG) on an Oklahoma squad vying for the Big 12 title. She is shooting 53.0% from the field and could get the chance to play for the WNBA team in her native Texas. Forwards who are Williams' size need heart, hustle and nose-for-the-ball instincts, traits she possesses.

UConn Huskies| forward | 6-foot-5 | senior

Juhász has played well for the depth-challenged Huskies after an early-season thumb injury: She is averaging a double-double -- 14.4 PPG, 10.3 RPG -- plus 3.4 assists. Her size, production and UConn pedigree could make her a possible fit for the Lynx, who are building around former Huskies star Napheesa Collier.

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 : NFL Mock Draft 2023: Bears trade Justin Fields, select QB with No. 1 pick; run on skill players to end Round 1

Round 1 - Pick 1

Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 194 lbs

Projected Team
Chicago
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st

If Justin Fields can be a top-10 quarterback, Bryce Young can be top five. Former Vikings GM Rick Spielman (and host of CBS Sports "With the First Pick" podcast) likens Young's off-schedule prowess to Patrick Mahomes and his poise, vision and playmaking ability to Steph Curry. He's the whole package (aside from his slight frame) who will make Chicago fans accept the departure of Fields.

Round 1 - Pick 2

Ohio State • Jr • 6'3" / 218 lbs

Projected Team
Houston
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
2nd

If the Texans wanted Bryce Young, well, "not so fast, my friend!" (Lee Corso voice). Still, Houston is in a great spot, as C.J. Stroud could just as easily end up as the No. 1 overall pick. The Ohio State product instills life into that franchise under new head coach DeMeco Ryans.

Round 1 - Pick 3

Georgia • Jr • 6'3" / 300 lbs

Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st

Good start to the tenure of new head coach Jonathan Gannon, who oversaw one of the most productive defensive fronts in NFL history with the Eagles this past season. That unit had 2022 first-round mammoth Jordan Davis, and while he did not live up to expectations in Year 1, his former Georgia teammate Jalen Carter figures to be an interior disruptor from Day 1 in Arizona.

Round 1 - Pick 4

Kentucky • Sr • 6'3" / 232 lbs

Projected Team
Indianapolis
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
3rd

Colts owner Jim Irsay basically admitted that the team will select a QB in this year's draft, even going out of his way to praise Bryce Young at new head coach Shane Steichen's introductory press conference. Well, both Young and C.J. Stroud are gone, but Indianapolis still gets an intriguing yet inconsistent Will Levis. If he can maximize his NFL-level traits, the franchise won't be looking for another signal-caller for several more years.

Alabama • Jr • 6'4" / 243 lbs

Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st

If the Seahawks were contemplating taking a QB, the board made their decision for them. And I doubt GM John Schneider nor HC Pete Carroll would complain about adding an instant Pro Bowl-caliber edge rusher like Will Anderson Jr. to a defense that struggled in 2022.

Oregon • Soph • 6'2" / 201 lbs

Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
2nd

In each of the past three drafts, there have been at least two cornerbacks taken in the top 10. It doesn't feel like that's going to happen this year, but you have to think one of these prospects will impress a team enough to be taken in the first several picks. In this exercise, that player is Christian Gonzalez, whose playmaking ability complemented his well-established physical traits this past season at Oregon.

Round 1 - Pick 7

Northwestern • Jr • 6'4" / 315 lbs

Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
1st

The Raiders have too many offensive weapons to rely on a rookie quarterback to lead them in a loaded AFC. And even if they wanted to, the only first-round QB available is Anthony Richardson, who will need to sit for at least a year. Las Vegas will most likely bring in another veteran QB, so it uses its top-10 selection to protect whomever ends up under center. Peter Skoronski gets knocked for his short arms, but he'll be an integral part of an NFL offensive line, whether that be at guard or tackle.

Texas Tech • Sr • 6'6" / 275 lbs

Projected Team
Chicago
PROSPECT RNK
16th
POSITION RNK
2nd

Surprise! Justin Fields ends up in Atlanta for first- and third-round picks, and Chicago fills another big need by adding an explosive edge rusher in Tyree Wilson.

Round 1 - Pick 9

Florida • Soph • 6'4" / 232 lbs

Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK

Frank Reich finally gets his rookie QB! ... and he'll be on the bench for at least the first season. Anthony Richardson is a tremendous talent, with the physical tools to develop into the best QB in this draft class. He's very raw, though, so signing a veteran and letting Richardson learn behind him would be the ideal way for Carolina to play this situation.

The "zero sacks, put it on a f---ing T-shirt" from Chiefs offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. went viral after the historically good Eagles pass rush did not register a sack in their Super Bowl defeat. In this mock, Howie Roseman takes that comment personally, investing in the versatile and explosive Myles Murphy to join a unit that could potentially lose Brandon Graham, Javon Hargrave, Fletcher Cox and Robert Quinn in free agency.

Three-time Pro Bowler Taylor Lewan expects to be released, which means the Titans will be looking for a left tackle for the first time in nearly a decade. They find one in Paris Johnson Jr., who handled the best Big Ten pass rushers at both guard and tackle during his Ohio State career.

You can't just draft a QB No. 2 and not surround him with playmakers, so the Texans deliver C.J. Stroud the smooth and shifty Jordan Addison to make his NFL transition easier.

For the sake of switching things up, let's assume the Jets figure out their offensive line issues to the point where they don't choose to invest in one in the first round. In that case, Brian Branch would be a welcomed addition to the Big Apple. All-Pro rookie Sauce Gardner made the Jets secondary look great a year ago, but safeties Lamarcus Joyner and Jordan Whitehead were both suspect. Branch can play anywhere, come up and stuff the run, and make sure Robert Saleh's defense continues to play at a high level.

The Patriots could stand to bolster the offensive tackle spot with Isaiah Wynn set to become a free agent and veteran Trent Brown coming off a disappointing campaign. Broderick Jones may end up as the OT1 by draft day, pairing his natural talent with his experience blocking some of the best defensive linemen in college football in the SEC.

Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love, doesn't matter. Whoever is under center for Green Bay in 2023 would benefit from Michael Mayer's blocking prowess, reliable hands and ability to get open in the biggest of moments. He'd be an immediate upgrade over impending free agent Robert Tonyan.

Reports out of Mobile, Alabama, were that general manager Martin Mayhew was looking a lot at the offensive linemen during Senior Bowl practices. And the best offensive lineman at that all-star game was O'Cyrus Torrence, who would immediately step in as an above-average starting guard in the NFL.

The No. 1 high school player in the country a few years ago didn't have his best season in 2022, but the Clemson product still has everything you want in a formidable interior disruptor. With John Cominsky and Isaiah Buggs set to become free agents, and Michael Brockers potentially being a cut candidate, pairing Bryan Bresee with Aidan Hutchinson would ensure the Lions have a formidable defensive front.

Lining up all over the field, Sanders stuffed the stat sheet with 103 tackles (13.5 for a loss), 9.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception. With 33-year-old stat stuffer Lavonte David set to hit free agency, Sanders would be a logical replacement.

First the Seahawks bolster the edge with Will Anderson Jr., and then they fortify the interior with Calijah Kancey. The undersized defensive tackle out of Pitt has the quickness and explosiveness to make plays up the middle.

Round 1 - Pick 21

Ohio State • Jr • 6'1" / 200 lbs

Keenan Allen isn't getting any younger and just missed seven games this past season due to injury. The Chargers can also save $17.5 million in cap space if they cut him with a post-June 1 designation. Regardless of what Los Angeles decides to do, adding a pristine route-runner like Jaxon Smith-Njigba will help it rightaway and in the long term.

How poetic for the Ravens to draft the son of a Steelers great to go up against his father's franchise twice a year. Oh, and Joey Porter Jr. is a very good corner as well. With Marcus Peters, 30, set to hit free agency, Porter will keep Baltimore secondary's strong.

The Vikings must address their pass defense that was second worst in the NFL in 2022, especially with veteran Patrick Peterson set to become a free agent. Kelee Ringo's size, length and speed overshadow his lackluster interception total (four the past two seasons), although he did combine for 15 pass breakups in that span. He has the traits to end up as the best cornerback in this class.

The Jaguars have a decision to make on 2022 breakout tight end Evan Engram, but Darnell Washington will be able to help them regardless. He'll immediately deliver them a strong in-line blocker while continuing to learn how to best use his 6-foot-7, 270-pound frame as a pass catcher.

It's looking more and more like the Giants and Daniel Jones are going to agree to some sort of extension. To truly know if he's the franchise quarterback, they have to surround him with high-caliber skill players. Quentin Johnston has the size, strength and speed to make plays down the field for New York.

If the Cowboys let Tony Pollard walk in free agency, Bijan Robinson would be a logical replacement and a huge addition to this offense. CeeDee Lamb said recently that the team needs to provide Dak Prescott with more playmakers in order to get to the Super Bowl. Well, Robinson is one of the best playmakers in this class as the best running back prospect since Saquon Barkley. He'll be able to handle pass-catching duties as well.

Stefon Diggs is elite, and Dawson Knox has grown into a reliable red-zone threat. The rest of the pass catchers, most notably Gabe Davis, were underwhelming, so Jalin Hyatt would provide the gun-slinging Josh Allen with another burner who can get behind the defense.

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

Killexams : Mock Projects Lions to Take Massive Gamble With Skill Position Star

Getty TCU's Quentin Johnston runs while playing against Michigan in 2022.

Offensively, the Detroit Lions don’t seem to have too many weaknesses heading toward the 2023 season, but that doesn’t stop some folks from daydreaming about weaponry coming to the team.

Wide receiver would seemingly be low on the list of needs after the team produced a phenomenal season from the position. Even though that is the case, the mock draft community has already showed off an interesting potential pick for Detroit.

Bleacher Report’s scouting department recently produced a post-Super Bowl mock draft. Within, they had multiple quarterbacks and defenders going within the top five. When pick six hit, that’s where a curveball came the Lions’ way.

The selection for Detroit? Wide receiver Quentin Johnston of TCU, an explosive player that has yet to rise up draft boards substantially. Still, the Bleacher Report team including Derrik Klassen opined that he could fit in as an ideal addition for a Detroit roster that could soon be in need.

“Johnston is a seamless replacement for DJ Chark, who is a free agent this offseason. Johnston does his best work stretching the field on go balls, post routes or deep crossing patterns. If Johnston gets to stride out in space, he’s going to have his way and deliver his quarterbacks chances for explosive plays down the field. The two-time, first-team All-Big 12 selection is also wicked with the ball in his hands, thanks to easy change of direction skills and threatening top speed,” Klassen said in the piece.

In spite of that, Klassen did admit to the pick of Johnston at six perhaps being “too high,” despite the team needing a wideout with his skill level and abilities.

Further down the board with Detroit’s 18th pick, the mock went more conventional, sending the Lions a cornerback. The player itself was a bit unconventional, however. Detroit’s selection in the mock was Utah’s Clark Phillips III, who had nine interceptions and four touchdowns in three years for the Utes.

Before that pick, though, is Johnston really a player worthy of a top 10 selection? If that ends up not being the case, it could be a risky selection given Detroit’s substantial needs on defense. The pre-draft evaluation process will sort out where Johnston ranks in due time, but for now, this mock draft sees him as a potential top pick.

The Lions are fresh off selecting wideout Jameson Williams with the 12th overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft. It remains to be seen whether they would elect to remake their wideout core completely with this kind of bold move.


Johnston’s College Stats & Highlights

There’s no questioning the talent of Johnston given what he has been able to do during his career with the Horned Frogs as the team’s most explosive offensive weapon.

Coming into the 2022 season, In just two seasons of work, Johnson had put up 1,121 yards and eight touchdowns to his credit at wideout. He also had collected a pair of rushing touchdowns in his career, showing his overall ability to be an exciting piece for an offense.

Things only got better once the new season came around for Johnston. With TCU, he put up 1,069 yards and six touchdowns on 60 receptions. It was a career year when Johnston needed one the most.

The highlights do show a player who can make the big play as well as show himself as a fluid speedy runner and athlete. Here’s a look at what Johnson has done so far while on the field in the Big 12:

Johnston would certainly offer a rising Lions offense another player capable of hitting a home run, and could help the team become one of the more dangerous offenses in the league.


Lions Have Decision to Make With DJ Chark

Perhaps the biggest variable that will determine whether or not the Lions are active in the draft market for a wideout early will revolve around what happens in free agency.

In spite of some reservations otherwise, the Lions may have to consider sticking with veteran DJ Chark given his potential desire to stay. The biggest question Brad Holmes will have to answer regarding the wideout this offseason revolves around who the real Chark is outside of the statistics.

Is Chark the injury-prone receiver who started the season by dropping a few passes, then getting dinged up and having to be shelved again, or is he the guy who has surged down the stretch and looked like a major piece within Detroit’s offense?

Already, many have speculated that Chark will have to find a new home this coming season, because the Lions may want to move on and find another player to sign that could be cheaper.

When he is on, Chark seems like an easy 80-100 yard pass catcher most weeks. That’s big production for a Detroit offense that needed some of the deep ball jolts Chark was able to provide the team. After he came back midseason off injury, there was a noticeable uptick in the number of big pass plays Detroit’s offense generated.

Still, if the Lions could nab a player like Johnston who was a rookie to deliver them some of the same production Chark did for cheaper, it could have to be considered a winning scenario for the team.

Is Johnston a player that could be on the radar for Detroit outside this mock? That will shake itself out in due time. For now, it’s just one of many potentially intriguing options the team will have.
