Through four weeks of the 2023 NFL regular season, fans of many clubs are already calling for a replacement at quarterback. And the best place to find said replacement is, of course, the draft. 

In what is shaping up to be truly one of the deepest quarterback classes in at least five years -- if not longer -- there will be plenty to choose from in April.

Important: The draft order now is determined by the current, official draft order. Thanks to Tankathon for compiling it.

Chicago
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st
Whomever has the top pick will select Williams, and in this case, it's the Bears. When this happens, they move Justin Fields in a trade.

Projected Team
Chicago
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st
While there'll be a push for the Bears to trade back in this scenario, no one should blame them for simply staying put and drafting this stud of a wideout prospect.
Round 1 - Pick 3
North Carolina • 6'4" / 230 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
2nd
If Josh McDaniels is given another season after the 2023 campaign, he'll need to turn his attention to the quarterbacks in the draft, and Maye has looked like a future top pick for many seasons now.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Penn State • 6'6" / 317 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st
Fashanu is an instant franchise left tackle for Sean Payton's offense. He's young, powerful and balanced.
Round 1 - Pick 5
Michigan • 6'3" / 219 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
1st
As Michigan continues to roll through the Big Ten, the McCarthy hype will slowly intensify. He has all the tools to be this high of a pick.
Round 1 - Pick 6
Notre Dame • 6'8" / 322 lbs

Round 1 - Pick 8
LSU • 6'0" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
1st
I doubt the Bengals ultimately pick this high. If they do, they could be in the market for another wideout to complement Ja'Marr Chase with Tee Higgins bound for free agency.
Round 1 - Pick 9
UCLA • 6'5" / 267 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
2nd
In this scenario, the Cardinals continue to play respectable ball, get a boost when Kyler Murray returns and don't move him in the offseason. That allows them to address the outside pass rush with an intimidating specimen who's been awesomely productive at UCLA.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Texas • Soph • 6'2" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
41st

Ohio State • Jr • 6'1" / 206 lbs
Projected Team
New Orleans
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Ohio State-to-New Orleans pipeline sends another Buckeye to the Saints. Egbuka and Chris Olave could be a fun duo for many years inside the Superdome.
Round 1 - Pick 13
Alabama • 6'1" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
52nd
POSITION RNK

L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
14th
POSITION RNK

Houston

Washington
PROSPECT RNK
59th
POSITION RNK
6th
The Commanders go with the first interior blocker off the board to protect Sam Howell, who's had two dazzling games in the first quarter of the 2023 season.
Round 1 - Pick 17
Duke • 6'5" / 314 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
48th
POSITION RNK

Barton can play tackle or guard, and the Jaguars could use blocking reinforcement in front of Trevor Lawrence and for the ground game.
Round 1 - Pick 18
Penn State • 5'11" / 190 lbs

L.A. Rams
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK
A supreme cornerback talent to lock down opposing No. 1 receivers for the Rams.

Atlanta

Indianapolis
PROSPECT RNK
33rd

More blocking help in front of Anthony Richardson. A must.
Round 1 - Pick 21
Clemson • Jr • 6'1" / 230 lbs
Projected Team
Pittsburgh
PROSPECT RNK
34th
POSITION RNK

Carter feels like a Steelers linebacker. Ultra fast and physical, he'll rock behind Pittsburgh's defensive front.
Round 1 - Pick 22
Washington • 6'3" / 215 lbs
Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK
Odunze is a large, fast, powerful boundary wideout who can take the lid off the defense with his speed. The Titans need more big-play creators on offense.

Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
58th
POSITION RNK
8th

Missouri • 5'11" / 178 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas

POSITION RNK
Abrams-Draine has been on the draft radar for a while and is enjoying a productive 2023 season at Missouri. Welcomed addition to the Cowboys secondary unit.

Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
28th
POSITION RNK
4th
Yes, Jameson Williams is eligible to play again, but that doesn't erase the fact that the Lions need a physical outside receiver. That's precisely what Coleman is.
Round 1 - Pick 26
BYU • 6'6" / 325 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
59th
POSITION RNK
9th
Given Terron Armstead's age and injury history, the Dolphins have to address the offensive tackle position early in the draft.
Round 1 - Pick 27
Florida State • 6'6" / 228 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
26th
POSITION RNK

Projected Team
Buffalo
PROSPECT RNK
54th
POSITION RNK
8th
Sweat is a mammoth individual -- he could tip the scales at more than 350 pounds at the combine. But he's nimble relative to that size and has demonstrated serious pass-rush ability in 2023 to go along with his gigantic tackling radius as a run stopper.
Round 1 - Pick 29
Iowa • 6'0" / 198 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Ravens need to add some high-caliber talent to the cornerback room, and DeJean is as instinctive as they come.

Alabama • 6'6" / 360 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK

Not a flashy pick, but the 49ers can't pass on a SEC-tested blocker who can play guard or tackle.
Round 1 - Pick 31
Notre Dame • Sr • 6'0" / 288 lbs
Projected Team
Kansas City
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK
Cross has played like the best interior pass-rusher in college football to date, and that's precisely what the Chiefs need next to Chris Jones.
Round 1 - Pick 32
Wake Forest • 6'0" / 195 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
100th
POSITION RNK
12th
Given the ages of Darius Slay and James Bradberry, the Eagles go with a twitchy, playmaking cornerback here.
