With the Super Bowl officially here, we know which positions most teams will be selecting in the 2023 NFL Draft.

There's no "clear-cut" No. 1 prospect in the NFL Draft. But the consensus is that we might see a quarterback come off the board throughout the first couple of picks.

There might be some uncertainty, but we'll try our best. Here's a full first-round mock draft for the 2023 NFL Draft before the Super Bowl.

2023 NFL First-Round Mock Draft Ahead of the Super Bowl

1. Texans: Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

The Texans won Week 18 and lost the number one spot in the NFL Draft to the Chicago Bears. But with the Bears expected to stick with Justin Fields, Chicago doesn't need a quarterback.

The Bears need defensive help after trading away a ton of talent at the trade deadline. There are also many other areas that they'll need to improve. But the quarterback isn't one of them. So I'm expecting a trade between the Texans and Bears that will help the Texans land Bryce Young as the first pick of the NFL Draft.

2. Bears: Jalen Carter, DL, Georgia

Here's your defensive help. The Bears would likely end up with more draft picks in other rounds and years. But they'll make sure to get the best defensive player in the draft.

3. Cardinals: Will Anderson, EDGE, Alabama

The Cardinals won't have J.J. Watt anymore. So they'll want to bring in Will Anderson, one of the best pass rushers in the draft class. This makes complete sense.

4. Colts: CJ Stroud, QB, Ohio State

It's between C.J. Stroud and Will Levis. But Stroud showed us much more in college and played exceptionally well in the College Football Playoff against Georgia. That's enough for me.

5. Seahawks: Tyree Wilson, LB, Texas Tech

The Seahawks need to get better defensively. They need to be more dynamic, as Pete Caroll suggested. Wilson is a raw talent, but they've got the coaching staff to get his full potential out.

6. Lions: Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

The Lions' defense continues to improve with Myles Murphy next. This team is going to have Aiden Hutchinson and Murphy on the defense. It's a no-brainer if Murphy falls to six. He's undoubtedly a top-five talent in most draft classes.

7. Raiders: Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

8: Falcons: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

9. Panthers: Anthony Richardson, QB, Florida

I don't know the better option between Richardson and Will Levis. But Richardson likely has more raw talent, and if it can be translated into the NFL, he's the guy the Panthers will want to get.

10: Eagles: Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon

11. Titans: Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

12. Texans: Jordan Addison, WR, USC

13. Jets: Broderick Jones, OT, Georgia

14. Patriots: Bryan Bresee, DL, Clemson

15. Packers: Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

Packers need a backup plan for when Aaron Rodgers leaves. Jordan Love hasn't proven much when given the opportunity.

16. Commanders: O'Cyrus Torrence, OG, Florida

17: Stealers: Brian Branch, S, Alabama

18. Lions: Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

The Lions traded away T.J. Hockenson. Now they'll add Michael Mayer to their improving offense.

19. Buccaneers: Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

20. Seahawks: Paris Johnson Jr., OT, Ohio State

21. Dolphins: Forfeited

22. Chargers: Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College

23. Ravens: Bijan Robinson, RB, Texas

24. Vikings: Cam Smith, CB, South Carolina

25. Jaguars: Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

26. Giants: Jaxon Smith-Njigba, WR, Ohio State

27: Cowboys: Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

28: Bills: Devon Witherspoon, CB, Illinois

29: Bengals: Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma

30. Broncos: BJ Ojulari, EDGE, LSU

31. Chiefs: Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama

32. Eagles: Darnell Washington, TE, Georgia
