2023 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #6

Return to Mock Draft

Paris Johnson Jr.

Ohio State


A bevy of trades have landed the Cardinals six to draft the first offensive tackle off the board.

Arizona got picks 12, 33, and a 2024 1st-round pick and 3rd-round pick from the Texans and used picks 12 and 34 to trade back into the top 10. Kyler Murray demanded an offensive lineman in this draft from the Cardinals' new general manager, Monti Ossenfort, and it appears his wishes were granted. Arizona extended left tackle D.J. Humphries this offseason and now they shore up the other side with a great pass protector for Murray when he comes back from his ACL injury. Johnson Jr. shows great versatility all along the line with outstanding athleticism and length. He should be able to step in immediately as a plus starter for a rebuilding Cardinals offense.
