The first round of the 2023 NFL Draft is over and done with. After months of speculation, smokescreen, and mind games, the picks went in to Roger Goodell in Kansas City. It was quite an eventful first round with Bryce Young going first overall and things getting pretty, pretty weird after that. A fun night all in all and one that sets up a lot of drama for Day 2 of the draft, which features the second and third rounds.

You find yourself here because you want to know when the fireworks will begin on Friday. We are honored to provide that answer for you.
