NFL mock draft: New 2-round projections 2 weeks out from the draft

The 2023 NFL draft is just two short weeks away.

After giving a set of three-round projections at the three-week mark last Thursday, this week’s mock draft features two rounds. It’s the last set of projections I’ll do before the final mock, outside of the annual “what I would do” mock draft that is in no way a predictive model.

This is an attempt to predict what the teams might do in the given situations. There are a couple of trades and breakdowns of the deals.
