2023 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #20

Return to Mock Draft

Jaxon Smith-Njigba

Ohio State


With their second pick of the night, Seattle addresses the other side of the passing game and takes the first WR of the draft. DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are bona fide stars and playmakers, but the third receiver spot was in need of upgrading and it's a passing league.

Jaxon missed most of the 2022 season due to a hamstring injury, but during his sophomore season he tore up the Big Ten with 1606 yards and 9 touchdowns. Doing a significant amount of damage lining up in the slot, Jaxon easily slides right into the receiving core with a defined role. An offense with playmakers in Metcalf, Lockett, and Kenneth Walker III should have Geno Smith salivating.

The Seahawks still have multiple picks tomorrow and could make more splash plays in this draft.

Grade: A+
