It's been a long time coming, but the 2023 NFL Draft is finally upon us. Whether you are a casual NFL fan or an avid draft follower, this promises to be the most exciting three-day stretch of the offseason.

From now until Saturday evening, teams will have a chance to reshape and reconstruct their rosters. Some will add the next generation of NFL stars to their team while others could make franchise-altering mistakes on draft day that set their team back.
