The first round of the 2023 NFL Draft has come to an end, with the first 31 picks made. As expected, it was a fairly quiet night for the Miami Dolphins, who did not have a pick in the round. There was still plenty of action, with players selected and trades made all over the board throughout the night.

The evening started with the Carolina Panthers, who had previously traded up to the first overall position in a deal with the Chicago Bears, selecting quarterback Bryce Young from Alabama. The Houston Texans then did exactly what everyone expected by taking the other top-rated quarterback, selecting Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud. The the Texans did something no one expected and moved back up to the third-overall pick, making a deal with the Arizona Cardinals, to make back-to-back picks and adding Alabama linebacker Will Anderson.
