Thursday night began the 2023 NFL draft which took place in Kansas City. The home of the Super Bowl Champion Chiefs, with the Dolphins forfeiting their pick due to #BradyGate there would only be 31 first round picks. The Detroit Lions held two picks originally at 6 and 18 but made a trade with the Arizona Cardinals to move back to 12. The Detroit Lions also picked up a second round pick at #34 which is basically Round 2 Pick 3. Much has been made on Detroit Sports Talk radio about the Lions picking a Running Back and a Linebacker in the first round.
The NFL draft was thrown into chaos when the Houston Texans moved up and picked CJ Stroud and Will Anderson back to back. The entire draft boards of several NFL teams were blown up by this. The Lions seemed to make it look like Bijan Robinson was their draft target, but he was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons at 8.
The NFL draft was considered lighter on generational talent that could shake the league and make a team better immediately. Many of the big name players were taken quickly after the Cardinals and Lions made their trade.

NFL DRAFT RESULTS
Will Levis Plummets Due To Toe Injury There are several noteworthy prospects still available, starting with Kentucky quarterback Will Levis, who tumbled out of Round 1. Could he find an early landing spot Friday? The other highest-regarded remaining players include Notre Dame tight end Michael Mayer, Penn State cornerback Joey Porter Jr., Alabama defensive back Brian Branch and Oregon State tight end Luke Musgrave. Each was thought to have a chance to go in the first round.
Kentucky QB Will Levis slides out of NFL draft's first round - ESPN
Kentucky quarterback Will Levis, widely expected to be a first-round pick in the 2023 NFL draft, was not chosen among the 31 selections made Thursday night.
ESPN draft analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay both had Levis being selected by the Indianapolis Colts in their final mock drafts. The Colts, however, selected Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson with the No. 4 pick.
Levis' left toe that caused him to miss two games last year was "problematic " for one team that considered him, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Thursday.
Levis, who is 6-foot-4 and 229 pounds, has drawn comparisons to Buffalo Bills star Josh Allen with his strong arm and above-average mobility. Levis spent the first two years of his college career at Penn State before transferring to Kentucky as a junior. His production fell off last season as a senior, when he passed for 2,406 yards with 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions after throwing for 2,826 yards, 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2021. He also rushed for nine touchdowns as a junior but managed just two rushing scores last season.
