IREB IREB Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE)

The Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE) is a personal certificate aimed at individuals working in Requirements Engineering, Business Analysis and Testing. It will expand your professional knowledge and help you to become more successful in your job.
The certification scheme is developed by the IREB, the contents are taught by independent training providers and the CPRE test can be taken at approved certification bodies. The CPRE certificate has lifetime validity.

Requirements engineering as the first step of system development crucially influences the success of the development project. The four core disciplines of requirements engineering are: elicitation, documentation, verification and validation management. Professionalism in requirements engineering avoid defects in system analysis and establishes a structured proceeding from project idea to a valuable set of requirements. Quality characteristics are defined for a single requirement as well as for the requirements specification as a whole.

You can prepare for the exams by attending a training course with a recognised IREB® training provider for IREB® Requirements Engineering - Foundation Level; participants will have relevant content and Topics clearly explained and taught to them. The syllabus covers the important foundations in requirements engineering: differentiation between the system and system context, establishment and documentation of requirements, as well as their testing and management and the tool support available.The test is available on Pearson Vue for anyone wishing to self-study.

The IREB® Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering - Foundation Level certification is a prerequisite for taking the three IREB® Advanced Level courses: Requirements Modelling, Requirements Management, Requirements Elicitation & Consolidation.

The level of detail of this syllabus allows internationally consistent teaching and examination. To reach this goal, the syllabus contains the following
General educational objectives
Contents with a description of the educational objectives and References to further literature (where necessary)
Educational Objectives / Cognitive Knowledge Levels
Each module of the syllabus is assigned a cognitive level. A higher level includes the lower levels.
The formulations of the educational objectives are phrased using the verbs "knowing" for level
L1 and "mastering and using" for level L2. These two verbs are placeholders for the following
L1 (knowing): enumerate, characterize, recognize, name, reflect
L2 (mastering and using): analyze, use, execute, justify, describe, judge, display, design,develop, complete, explain, exemplify, elicit, formulate, identify, interpret, conclude from, assign, differentiate, compare, understand, suggest, summarize
All terms defined in the glossary have to be known (L1), even if they are not explicitly mentioned in the educational objectives.
This syllabus uses the abbreviation "RE" for Requirements Engineering.
Structure of the Syllabus
The syllabus consists of 9 main chapters. One chapter covers one educational unit (EU). Each main chapter title contains the cognitive level of the chapter, which is the highest level of the sub-chapters. Furthermore, the teaching time is suggested that is the minimum a course should invest for that chapter. Important terms in the chapter, which are defined in the glossary, are listed at the beginning of the chapter.
Example: EU 1 Introduction and Foundations (L1)
Terms: Requirement, Stakeholder, Requirements Engineering, Functional Requirement, Quality Requirement, Constraint
This example shows that chapter 1 contains education objectives at level L1 and 75 minutes are intended for teaching the material in this chapter.
Each chapter can contain sub-chapters. Their titles also contain the cognitive level of their content.

Educational objectives (EO) are enumerated before the actual text. The numbering shows to which sub-chapter they belong.
Example: EO 3.1.2 This example shows that educational objective EO 3.1.2 is described in sub-chapter 3.1
The Examination
This syllabus is the basis for the examination for the foundation level certificate.
A question in the examination can cover material from several chapters of the syllabus. All chapters (EU 1 to EU 9) of the syllabus can be examined.

Terms: Requirement, Stakeholder, Requirements Engineering, Functional Requirement, Quality Requirement, Constraint
Educational Objectives:
EO 1.1 Knowing symptoms of and reasons for inadequate RE
EO 1.2 Knowing the four major activities of RE
EO 1.3 Knowing the role of communication in RE

EO 1.4 Knowing skills of a requirements engineer
EO 1.5 Knowing the three kinds of requirements
EO 1.6 Knowing the role of quality requirements
Good RE is important since many errors arise already in this phase and can only be rectified later at high cost. Typical symptoms of inadequate RE are missing and unclear requirements.
Typical reasons for inadequate RE are the wrong assumption of the stakeholders that much is self-evident and does not need to be stated explicitly communication problems due to differences in experience and knowledge the project pressure from the client to build a productive system rapidly.
The four main activities of RE are elicitation, documentation, validation/negotiation plus the management of requirements. The activities can be scheduled in specific processes such as recommended in the Standard ISO/IEC/IEEE 29148:2011. They often concern different levels of requirements such as stakeholder requirements and system or software requirements.
Natural language is the most important means to communicate requirements. At the same time it is particularly important to agree on a common terminology. Furthermore the communication medium (written or spoken) plays a big role. When communicating, all participants must deal consciously with focusing and simplification.
This is especially true for the most important role in RE: the requirements engineer. Besides communication skills he or she must especially have the following skills: analytical thinking, empathy, conflict resolution skills, moderation skills, self-confidence and the ability to convince. Typically we differentiate between three kinds of requirements: functional requirements, quality requirements and constraints.

The umbrella term “non-functional requirement” is often used for quality requirements and constraints. Quality requirements must be documented explicitly. In particular the following aspects need to be considered
More comprehensive quality models can be found in the requirements engineering literature and in standards such as the Standard ISO/IEC25010:2011.
Even though quality requirements are mostly documented using natural language, their relation to other statements have to be traceable and their validation has to be ensured by quantitative assertions or made operational by transformation into additional functionality.

Terms: System Context, System Boundary, Context Boundary
Educational Objectives:
EO 2.1 Knowing system context, system boundary and context boundary
EO 2.2 Mastering and using system boundary and context boundary
EU 2.1 System, System Context and Boundaries (L1)
The source and so the justifications of the requirements for a system lie in the system context of the planned system. The source consists of the set of all context aspects that initiated or influenced the definition of the requirements. Among the potential aspects in the system context are:
People (stakeholder or groups of stakeholders)
Systems in operation (technical systems, software and hardware)
Processes (technical or physical processes, business processes)
Events (technical or physical)
Documents (e.g. laws, standards, system documentation)
It is the function of the system boundary to define which aspects will be covered by the planned system and which aspects are part of this systems environment. The context boundary identifies the part of the environment that has a connection to the system to be developed.
EU 2.2 Determining System and Context Boundaries (L2)
Often the system boundary is only precisely defined towards the end of the requirements process. Before that, the desired functions and qualities of the planned system are only incompletely known or not known at all. Therefore there will be a grey zone in which the possible system boundary lies. Besides a shifting of the system boundary within the grey zone, the grey zone itself can also shift during the RE process, e.g. when, through a shifting of the system boundary, further aspects of the environment become important.
Also the context boundary can change over time, e.g. when it turns out, contrary to expectations, that a legal requirement, previously classified as relevant, has absolutely no impact on the planned system, then the system context is reduced in this area.
The context boundary also has a grey zone. It comprises the identified aspects of the environment for which, at a particular time, it is unclear whether these aspects have a relation to the planned system or not.

Educational Objectives:
- Knowing various types of requirements sources
- Knowing the significance of requirements sources and the consequences of disregarded requirements sources
- Knowing the most important information of the stakeholder documentation
- Knowing important principles in dealing with stakeholders (stakeholder rights and duties)
- Mastering and using the content and significance of the Kano model
- Knowing influencing factors for the choice of elicitation techniques
- Knowing advantages and disadvantages of elicitation techniques
- Mastering and using the following types of elicitation techniques and examples for each: survey techniques, creativity techniques, document-centered techniques, observation techniques and supporting techniques

An important activity in RE activity is the elicitation of requirements for the system to be developed. The foundations for the requirements elicitation comprise on the one hand the system context and on the other hand the requirements sources. Various types of requirements sources are differentiated. Possible requirements sources are, for example, stakeholders, documents or existing systems.
It is the task of RE to collect the goals and requirements from the various requirements sources. If sources are disregarded, this can have significant negative consequences on the entire course of the project. The documentation of the requirements sources should, with respect to the stakeholders, contain at least the following information:
function (role)
additional personal and contact data
temporal and spatial availability during the project progress
relevance of the stakeholder
their area and extent of expertise
their goals and interests regarding the project

Depending on the company culture it is appropriate, in agreement with the stakeholders, to define verbally or by means of written documentation the tasks, responsibilities, authority, etc. From the stakeholder agreements arise rights and duties for each stakeholder. Dealing with stakeholders effectively guards against lack of motivation and conflicts. Stakeholders should be involved in the project and not only affected by the project.
EU 3.2 Requirements Categorization according to the Kano Model (L2) For the elicitation of requirements, it is crucial to know what importance the requirements have for the satisfaction of the stakeholders. According to the model of Dr. Kano, this satisfaction can be classified into three categories:
Basic factors (synonym: Dissatisfiers)
Performance factors (synonym: Satisfiers)
Excitement factors (synonym: Delighters)
EU 3.3 Elicitation Techniques (L2)
Elicitation techniques fulfill the purpose of finding out the conscious, unconscious and subconscious requirements of stakeholders. Important factors influencing the choice of elicitation technique are risk factors, human influences, organizational influences, functioncontent influences and the intended level of detail of the requirements. Various techniques are needed for the various RE products:
Survey techniques (e.g. interviews, questionnaires)
Creativity techniques (e.g. brainstorming, brainstorming paradox, change of perspective, analogy technique)
Document-centric techniques (e.g. system archaeology, perspective-based reading, requirements reuse)
Observation techniques (e.g. field observation, apprenticing) Support techniques (e.g. mind mapping, workshops, CRC cards, audio and video recordings, use case modeling, prototypes)
The application of appropriate elicitation techniques is a project-critical key competence. The best results are achieved with a combination of various elicitation techniques.

Terms: Requirements Document, Requirements Specification Educational Objectives:
- Knowing key reasons for requirements documentation
- Knowing the three perspectives of functional requirements
- Knowing advantages and disadvantages of natural language requirements documentation
- Knowing the most important model-based requirements documentation form
- Knowing the advantages of mixed form of requirements documentation
- Knowing the advantages of standardized document structures
- Knowing widespread document structures
- Knowing important points for a tailored standard structure
- Knowing activities building on requirements documents
- Mastering and using quality criteria for requirements documents
- Mastering and using quality criteria for requirements
- Knowing the two most important style rules for requirements
- Mastering and using contents and importance of a glossary
- Mastering and using rules for handling the glossary
- Document Design (L1)
In RE it is necessary to document all important information. All forms of more or less formal representation of requirements, from the description in prose up to diagrams with formal semantics, are called documentation techniques. Many people are involved in the documentation in the lifecycle of a requirements document. Documentation plays a goal-orientated supporting function in communication. The following factors make this support necessary. Requirements are long-lasting, legally relevant and should be accessible to all. Requirements documents are complex.
EU 4.2 Documentation Types (L1)
Requirements documents include, amongst other things, functional requirements that normally represent the following three different perspectives of a system.
Data perspective
Behavioral perspective
Functional perspective

All three perspectives can be documented by means of natural language requirements, whilst conceptual model types are specialized for one of these perspectives. Effectively applicable forms of the documentation are:
Natural language requirements documentation Conceptual requirements models such as, for example use case diagrams, class diagrams, activity diagrams or state diagrams (see also EU 6) Combined forms of requirements documentation
EU 4.3 Document Structures (L1)
Central components of a requirements document are the requirements for the system being considered. Besides the requirements, depending on the purpose of the document, the requirements documents also contain information about the system context, acceptance conditions or, for instance, characteristics of the technical implementation. In order to ensure the manageability of requirements documents, such documents must be structured most appropriately.
Reference structures for requirements documents propose a more or less complete and a more or less flexible field-tested content structure. Common reference structures for requirements documents are described amongst others in the Standard ISO/IEC/IEEE 29148:2011.
In practice it turns out that there are a lot of positive effects from using reference structures for requirements documents. For instance, the use of reference structures simplifies the usage of the requirements documents in subsequent development activities (e.g. in the definition of test cases). Generally reference structures cannot be adopted one-to-one for a requirements document, as the content structure frequently has to be adapted in detail for domain-, companyor project-specific circumstances.
EU 4.4 Use of Requirements Documents (L1)
Requirements documents serve as the basis for many activities during the project lifespan, such as, for example
Architectural design
Change management
System usage and system maintenance
Contract management

In order to serve as a basis the subsequent development processes, the requirements document must meet certain quality criteria. In particular this includes:
Unambiguity and consistency
Clear structure
Modifiability and extensibility
EU 4.6 Quality Criteria for Requirements (L2)
In addition, the individual requirement must satisfy certain quality criteria, in particular:
Besides the quality criteria for requirements there are two basic style rules for requirements in natural language, which promote readability:
short sentences and paragraphs
formulate only one requirement per sentence

A frequent cause of conflicts, arising in RE, lies in the different understanding of terminology among the involved people. To prevent this problem, it is necessary that all relevant terms are defined in a glossary. A glossary is a collection of term definitions for:
context-specific technical terms
abbreviations and acronyms
everyday concepts that have a special meaning in the given context
The following rules should be observed when working with a glossary:
The glossary must be managed centrally
The responsibilities for maintaining the glossary must be defined
The glossary must be maintained over the course of the project
The glossary must be commonly accessible
Use of the glossary must be obligatory
The glossary should contain the sources of the terms
The stakeholders should agree upon the glossary
The entries in the glossary should have a consistent structure
It is beneficial to begin the development of the glossary as early as possible, in order to reduce the alignment work later on

Terms: Requirements Template
Educational Objectives:
EO 5.1 Mastering and using the five transformational processes in the perception and writing of natural language and their consequences on the formulation of requirements EO 5.2 Mastering and using the five steps for formulating requirements using a requirements template
EU 5.1 Language Effects (L2)
As natural language is often ambiguous and interpretable, it is necessary to pay special attention to precisely this aspect when using language. During the processes of perception and writing, socalled “transformational processes” occur. The fact that these transformational processes follow certain rules can be used by the requirements engineer to elicit exactly what the author of the requirement really did mean. The five most relevant transformational processes for RE are:
Nouns without reference index
Universal quantifiers
Incompletely specified conditions
Incompletely specified process words
EU 5.2 Requirements Construction using Templates (L2)
Requirements templates are an easily learnable and applicable approach to reducing language effects in the formulation of requirements. The requirements template effectively supports the author of a requirement in creating high quality requirements. The five steps to formulating requirements through a requirements template are:
Determine legal obligation
Determine the core of the requirement
Characterizes the activity of the system
Insert objects
Determine logical and temporal conditions

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 provide 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 provide 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 Improve 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.

Killexams : Pro Football Network has the Vikings going a new route in latest Mock Draft When you have a sixth-year senior entering the draft, the hope is that you have a relatively finished product that you don't need to develop much. That's Minnesota center Schmitz. On tape, you see him be the model of consistency. He can reach block, anchor in pass protection, climb to the second level and move relatively well. What set him apart was how he continuously tried to body dudes in drills. Schmitz was always trying to finish his opponent by destroying them. His performance might have earned himself a trip to the first round. © Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports When you have a sixth-year senior entering the draft, the hope is that you have a relatively finished product that you don't need to develop much. That's Minnesota center Schmitz. On tape, you see him be the model of consistency. He can reach block, anchor in pass protection, climb to the second level and move relatively well. What set him apart was how he continuously tried to body dudes in drills. Schmitz was always trying to finish his opponent by destroying them. His performance might have earned himself a trip to the first round.

The Minnesota Vikings have 25 impending free agents this offseason that they’ll need to make a decision on. One of which is center Garrett Bradbury. While there is no official word on Bradbury’s future with the team, his potential departure would leave a significant void at the center position.

Joe Broback of Pro Football Network suggests in a recent mock draft that the Vikings could address their need at center by selecting local talent John Michael Schmitz from the University of Minnesota.

“Even if Garrett Bradbury is the guy at center, this pick still makes sense. The Vikings need help on the interior offensive line, and John Michael Schmitz gives them versatility that they desperately need.

Schmitz played both guard and center with the Gophers, and he’s one of the biggest risers after the Senior Bowl. His tenacity in the trenches sets him apart, and that is something Minnesota needs offensively to elevate the unit.”

Drafting a center in the first round might not be many fans’ dream scenario, but let me tell you, Schmitz is the real deal. This guy’s got power like you wouldn’t believe, and even when he’s not quite on his A-game in protection, he’s got the grit and determination to bounce back. Schmitz could slide right into the starting role from day one, and the Vikings could finally have the stability they’ve been craving at center for years to come.

Killexams : Pro Football Network Goes Outside the Box for Giants in Mock Draft © Provided by Giants Country on FanNation

Pro Football Network projects a surprising pick to the Giants at No. 25 in their latest mock draft.

When one thinks of the New York Giants' most pressing needs, the conversation typically turns to receiver, inside linebacker, cornerback, interior offensive line, edge rusher, and defensive line as among the top priorities.

But in their latest mock draft, Joe Broback of Pro Football Network has an interesting choice for the Giants in the first round of the draft, where New York is scheduled to pick at No. 25.

That choice is Texas running back Bijan Robinson, of whom Broback writes:

“With Saquon Barkley set to become a free agent, it makes sense that the Giants would look for cheaper options to replace him. If Bijan Robinson falls this far in the first round, there’s no reason to believe the Giants would let him slip past them. Robinson is an elite runner with above-average pass-catching abilities. He’s a special talent that makes tackles for loss turn into first downs with ease. His quick feet makes defenders look ridiculous in a phone booth. Robinson’s going to be a stud at the next level. It just depends on his destination.”

Such a scenario is hard to envision. First, there are no guarantees that Barkley is definitely going to leave via free agency. If the Giants manage to get quarterback Daniel Jones’s new contract done before March 7, Barkley is likely assured of getting the franchise tag. That means he’s probably not going anywhere unless negotiations get ugly.

But even if Barkley were to depart via free agency, the running backs class is thought to be so deep that one might figure that the Giants can pick up a replacement later in the draft order that represents better value.

Robinson is a very intriguing player whom any team would be lucky to have. The 6-foot, 220-pounder is coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons in which he ran for at least 1,100 yards and 11 touchdowns. Robinson is a tough runner who averaged a whopping 4.40 yards per carry after contact in his career.

With just six fumbles and one penalty in his three-year college career, Robinson can also contribute as a receiver, having caught 60 of 77 pass targets for 803 yards and eight touchdowns.

But need has to somehow be matched with value, and while the Giants might need additional running back depth if, for example, they choose to move on from Matt Breida or, if in their long-term plan, they want an heir to the No. 1 running back spot, considering the depth of the running back class, there is no reason to think that the Giants couldn't fill this need later in the draft where they'd get better value.

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 accurate 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 accurate 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."

Killexams : New Mock Draft Sends Player Compared to All-Pro to Seahawks

Getty The Seattle Seahawks drafted an Oklahoma defensive linemen in a mock draft from USA Today.

The Seattle Seahawks do not have a first-round pick in the NFL draft this spring because the team dealt it in the trade for Jamal Adams in July 2020. So for the Seahawks’ draft, all eyes are on what the franchise will do with its second-round pick.

With needs on offense and defense, Seattle general manager John Schneider could go in a number of directions when the team picks first at No. 41 overall. In a new mock draft from writer Tim Weaver of USA Today, the Seahawks selected Oklahoma defensive lineman Perrion Winfrey.

“Seattle’s interior rotation is strong but aging, with Al Woods set to be 35 years old next month and Poona Ford turning 27 during the middle of the 2022 season,” Weaver wrote. “Reloading with fresh legs for this group is a good idea. Winfrey (6-foot-4, 292 pounds) might help. In 20 games at Oklahoma, he posted three batted passes, six sacks and 16.5 TFL.”

Weaver has done three different mock drafts for the Seahawks this offseason. The first two were all-linemen and all-offense mock drafts. In the all-linemen Seahawks mock draft, Weaver slotted Central Michigan offensive tackle Bernhard Raimann to Seattle in the second round.

Winfrey, who was not included in the Seahawks all-linemen mock draft, landed with Seattle in Weaver’s new mock draft, which has the Seahawks taking all defensive players.

While Winfrey is hardly guaranteed to go to Seattle, he’s a prospect that possesses a very high ceiling.

Perrion Winfrey Compares to Former All-Pro Fletcher Cox

The second round of the NFL draft is generally a place where teams look for players who have high potential but are a little bit riskier.

If that’s the strategy the Seahawks use with their second-round choice this year, Winfrey fits.

The Bleacher Report Scouting Department wrote that “Winfrey’s technique is a few years away from being NFL-ready, and there should be concern about how he will hold up when he needs to anchor against the run” but that “Winfrey is a ball of potential.”

Ken Noble of Draft Dive agrees. Noble placed a very high ceiling on the Oklahoma defensive lineman by comparing him to 2018 All-Pro defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.

“They both had similar height, weight and play style,” wrote Noble. “Whether he develops into the player Fletcher became is unknown. However, I believe his ceiling is higher than what Fletcher [Cox] was able to achieve.”

Cox made six straight Pro Bowls from 2015-20.

Winfrey Impressive at 2022 Senior Bowl

Similar to Boston College offensive lineman Zion Johnson, who Sports Illustrated’s Corbin K. Smith slotted to the Seahawks in the second round of his newest mock draft, Winfrey had a terrific Senior Bowl.

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay moved Winfrey significantly up his overall board because of his performance in the Senior Bowl.

“His first-step quickness was the best of any defensive lineman, or defensive tackle I should say, in Mobile all week long,” McShay said on ESPN’s “First Draft.” “It was like every single drill — watch, phew! — flying off the ball, penetrating, getting on the edge of offensive linemen. And by the time offensive linemen could get set, they had no chance. He was already working around the edge of them.

“He was productive throughout the week in practice. He had a sack in the game on Saturday, and I’ve bumped him up to No. 43 overall in this class. I think he could be an early second-round pick.”

The Seahawks draft 41st overall, which is ninth in the second round, of the 2022 NFL draft.

Perhaps the biggest worry for Seattle, assuming the franchise is actually targeting Winfrey, is if the Oklahoma defensive lineman’s stock continues to rise. ESPN has Winfrey ranked the third-best available defensive tackle in the draft class.

The Minnesota Vikings have a lot of holes to fill on their roster. They’ll first get an opportunity to fill those holes through free agency, but after that, they’ll need to depend on the NFL Draft. On Saturday, James Fragoza of Pro Football Network released a three-round mock draft and had the Vikings selecting South Carolina cornerback Cam Smith in the first round.

“Cam Smith is an instinctual corner with quick feet and fluid hips. He was rarely tested at South Carolina, but when he was, he broke up 15 passes and intercepted four more. His prowess in press can unlock coverage looks that Minnesota couldn’t run with their personnel last season.”

In the third round, Fragoza had the Vikings selecting Penn State wide receiver Parker Washington.

Parker Washington doesn’t garner enough attention. He’s a YAC threat with sure hands from the slot and has kick/punt return ability.”

Both of these selections would fill a need for the Vikings. They desperately need help at the cornerback spot given that they only have three players under contract for next season. Smith will help add a body to that group while bringing some physicality to a new Brian Flores defense.

As for wide receivers, the Vikings need to find someone who can pull the attention off of Justin Jefferson a bit more. While Washington isn’t a name a lot of fans know about, he’d provide the team with punt return ability and someone who can make all the catches you want.

Killexams : Texans trade with Bears for No. 1 overall in Pro Football Focus mock draft

The Houston Texans gave away the No. 1 overall pick with their 32-31 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 18 at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Chicago Bears lost to the Minnesota Vikings, and thus finished with a worse record than Houston: 3-14 to 3-13-1. The Bears’ tiebreaker over the Texans from Week 3 was immaterial as Houston had the better overall record.

According to Trevor Sikkema from Pro Football Focus, that loss of the No. 1 overall pick costs the Texans in his latest mock draft. Houston, paranoid the Colts will try to jump them to go to No. 1 overall and take Bryce Young, work out a deal with the Bears to jump back to the top spot in April’s draft.

One commentary about mock drafts that involve trades for the No. 1 overall pick is they don’t have any concept of compensation. The PFF mock draft at least has Houston trading their proprietary Round 1 (No. 2 overall), Round 2, and 2024 Round 4 selections for the top pick overall. According to the Drafttek trade value chart, the Texans would be overpaying by 180 points just on the No. 2 and No. 33 overall picks alone. The draft value chart does not take into account how much picks in future drafts cost, which means the Texans overspend even more for the chance to take Young.

The Texans use No. 12 overall to take TCU receiver Quentin Johnston.

He’s a good vertical receiver who can provide plenty of explosive plays. Plus, he moves well for a bigger receiver and is dynamic enough to rack up yards after the catch. The Texans’ pass-catching group looks barren right now, especially if Brandin Cooks remains disgruntled. They’d need all the help they can get.
