2023 NFL Draft: Community mock tracker, selections, grades

We’re tracking and grading every pick in our 2023 NFL mock draft, as made by the commenter in the Pride of Detroit community.

We’re already relatively deep into the 2023 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, but there is plenty of picks to be made. This mock gives our most-active commenters the opportunity to play general manager for an NFL team while also writing for the site to talk about their favorite prospects.

We’ll be posting two community mock draft articles per day, running down each first-round pick individually. Given the quick pace of this draft, it’s easy to miss out on a selection. So to help you keep pace with the draft and make sure you don’t miss a single pick, we’ve put together a 2023 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft tracker.

Not only will this keep track of every pick, but if you click on the player’s name in the tracker below, it will link you to the article from that pick and the reasoning for that selection.

Additionally, the tracker will display an overall grade for each pick—which is calculated from votes on each poll at the end of every article. For example, the selection Bryce Young first overall was graded an A by 49% of fans, B by 35%, C by 10% and so on. That averaged out to a “GPA” of 3.23—or a B+ grade.

We’ll continue to update this throughout the entire second round, but because second-round picks won’t have individual articles for each pick, there will be no grades or links to those posts. Instead, we’ll only grade the Detroit Lions picks, which are made by POD managing editor Erik Schlitt.

In the end, we’ll have a neat mock draft that we’ll be able to compare to the final results in about a month. If you’re curious, here’s how last year’s community mock turned out.

Now onto our 2023 tracker:
