Instant grades for every 2023 NFL Draft Round 2 and Round 3 pick

We’re on to Day 2 of the 2023 NFL Draft, and if the sequel is as any good as the first day of the NFL Draft, we’re in for a special one. Multiple trades and surprises came out of the night, but night 2 has a chance to be just as fun.

Of course, the main storyline is where Kentucky QB Will Levis will end up going. Once believed to be the Texans pick at number 2, Levis faced a long night in the greenroom in Kansas City, falling out of the first round altogether. Levis has his warts, but in the right system with the right coach he can become a starting QB. In addition, Tennessee QB Hendon Hooker was believed to sneak into the back end of the first round, but ended up not hearing his name called as well. While he’s older than Levis and coming off a major knee injury, he throws a very pretty deep ball that was highlighted in the Tennessee offense. Where he goes will be interesting to watch.

On top of that, there are a lot of talented players still left on the board. Alabama DB Brian Branch, Northwestern DL Adetomiwa Adebawore, TEs Michael Mayer( Notre Dame) and Darnell Washington(Georgia) highlight the best of the bunch. Check out our list of the top remaining players around round one.

32. Pittsburgh Steelers: Joey Porter Jr., CB, Penn State

Grade: A-

This feels like a perfect fit, doesn’t it? Porter was thought to be a first round pick but falls to the top of round 2, where he’ll slide right in and provide more of an edge and physicality to the Steeler QB room.
