The 2023 NFL Draft is just over 70 days. This cycle has flown by, so as we get into final report season, I am here to give you my favorite team/player fits of the draft. However, I am not taking the easy way out. We all know Bryce Young is a good fit for the Texans — or Bijan Robinson basically anywhere. It’s time to dive deep and find some matches made in heaven or, this year, Kansas City. These are my favorites NFL Draft fits
Best Prospect/Team Fits in 2023 NFL Draft
McVay and a project QB:
Stick with me here. Matthew Stafford is getting old; Sean McVay must be thinking about finding his heir apparent. I know a strong-arm, tough, pretty mobile QB who could really benefit from a mentor. That QB? Shepherd’s Tyson Bagent.
Tyson Bagent is a lot of fun, but he needs some ironing out. Who better to get the best out of a player than Sean McVay? I got to watch Bagent at the Senior Bowl, and you can see that he has the traits. He just needs to be smart and work on placement.
The Rams have a late fifth-round pick, and three sixth-round picks they could snag Bagent with.
A bell cow in Buffalo:
I would just like to remind the Bills of two things:
- Josh Allen is not a running back
- You play outdoors in Buffalo… WHICH IS PERFECT FOR A POWER BACK.
Now that we got that out of the way, how about we add a power back and get this train moving in the right direction again, okay? Texas’ Roschon Johnson would be perfect in Buffalo. The Bills could get him late day 2, plug him into their lineup, and would completely revitalize their run game with one draft pick.
Mahomes’ New Weapon
It has been rather obvious the Chiefs are lacking in the wide receiver department. Even though they made the Super Bowl, MVP Patrick Mahomes needs new threats downfield. Princeton WR Andrei Iosivas would be a perfect fit for the Chiefs.
Iosivas is similar to Christian Watson, who KC brought on a top 30 visit last year. He is fast, a great deep threat with good ball skills, and would be a great option to improve on the corps of JuJu Smith-Schuster, Kadarius Toney, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.
These are just the first few NFL Draft fits that I love. There are many more where these came from — whether it’s a new “Legion Of Boom” or literally any wide receiver and the Giants. Stay tuned for more!
