From now until the start of the 2023 NFL Draft, the first day of every week here will be known as Mock Draft Monday. What this means is that Ryan Wilson, our senior NFL Draft analyst, will be unveiling his latest mock draft.The biggest winner in his newest mock is Florida QB Anthony Richardson, who . Not only did Richardson record the highest vertical jump (40.5 inches) by a QB in modern combine history (detailed combine records only go back to 2003, so that's considered modern history), but he also tied the modern record for the broad jump with a 10-foot-9 leap AND he also fan the fourth-fastest 40 for a QB since 2003 (4.43).As for the other quarterbacks at the combine, we graded how each of them. Before the combine, Richardson was viewed as a high mid-first round pick, but now, the consensus seems to be that he's going to be a likely top eight pick, if not top five.In Wilson's latest mock, he has Richardson going No. 7 overall to the Raiders.Here are the first 15 picks:1. Bears:EDGE Will Anderson (Alabama)2. Alex Stalock Kids Jersey Texans:QB Bryce Young (Alabama)3. Cardinals:EDGE Tyree Wilson (Texas Tech)4. Colts:QB C.J. Stroud (Ohio State)5. Seahawks:DL Jalen Carter (Georgia)6. Lions:DL Myles Murphy (Clemson)7. Raiders:QB Anthony Richardson (Florida)8. Falcons:CB Christian Gonzalez (Oregon)9. Panthers:QB Will Levis (Kentucky)10.

Patriots:OL Darnell Wright (Tenne see)15. Packers:WR Zay Flowers (Boston College)One other thing worth noting about Wilson's mock is that Jalen Carter's legal situation didn't seem to have much impact on his draft stock. Despite the fact that , Wilson still has him going fifth overall. If you want to see how the rest of the first round pans out in his mock, then be sure to .As for Richardson, he was one of our biggest winners at the combine and we have a full list of winners and losers, .The Derek Carr sweepstakes is finally coming to an end and it looks like the Saints are going to come out on top. After flirting with the New York Jets for the past two weeks, Carr has decided that New Orleans is the best fit for him. Here's what we know:Carr headed to New Orleans. According to NFL.com, the Saints with Carr, who spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Raiders. The Saints were actually the first team to show interest in Carr and he ended up . At the time, Carr still played for the Raiders and the Saints were thinking about pulling off a trade, but instead, they waited for him to be released. Carr met with the Jets, Panthers and Saints at the combine before settling on New Orleans.Contract numbers. Although the exact numbers haven't been released yet, NFL.com has reported . No matter what the numbers are, the Saints are going to have to get creative with the contract, and that's mostly because they're currently $18 million OVER the salary cap. By adding Carr now, that gives them nine days to Jason Zucker Women Jersey get their cap situation figured out (Each team has to be salary cap compliant by March 15 at 4 p.m. ET). One way to pick up some quick money would be cut Jameis Winston. If the Saints cut him now, it would free up $4.4 million. They could also wait until June 1 to cut him, which , but if they go that route, it wouldn't help them get under the cap before March 15.Carr reunited with Dennis Allen. One reason Carr probably likes the Saints is because he's already familiar with their head coach. Dennis Allen was the Raiders' head coach in 2014 during Carr's rookie year in the NFL. Allen got fired by the Raiders after just four games in 2014, which means both guys know what it feels like to be dumped by the Raiders.Carr instantly become the best QB in the NFC South. This might change after free agency, but right now, Carr is the best QB in the division by far. The Buccaneers have Kyle Trask, the Falcons have Desmond Ridder and the Panthers only have Matt Corral under contract. If the other teams don't upgrade, that's going to make the Saints the instant favorites to win the NFC South in 2023.Jets are the biggest losers here. Over the weekend, it appeared the Jets , but now, they're back at square one. With Carr out of the running, the Jets will probably turn all of their attention toward Aaron Rodgers. If they can't acquire him, then the Jets might have to settle for someone like Jimmy Garoppolo. To me, Carr to the Jets always seemed like a longshot. I wrote he'd play in a cold-weather city so I'm not surprised at all that he picked a team that plays in a dome.If you're wondering how Carr's signing could impact the rest of the QB market, we .If you didn't spend your entire weekend watching the NFL Combine, that's OK, because our draft writers watched everything and then they proceeded to break it all down for us.
