Will Anderson Mock Draft Roundup

Where does Anderson appear in 2023 NFL mock drafts? Here's a roundup of mock drafts and where Anderson is being slotted.

The Athletic - Brugler

3rd overall, New York Jets

With his power, quickness and instincts, Anderson is a rare prospect and a blocker's worst nightmare. He would have been drafted No. 1 in the 2022 NFL Draft if he were eligible and will be the first non-quarterback drafted next April barring injury or anything off the field.

Walter Football

3rd overall, Chicago Bears

The Bears traded Khalil Mack in an attempt to rebuild, so they'll have to find a new dominant edge rusher to pair with Robert Quinn.

Will Anderson has ridiculous speed and athleticism. He was a force in Alabama's defense this past season.

6th overall, New York Jets

If (when?) the QBs fall, Anderson could be in contention to go first overall if he has another year like 2021, when he led the country in sacks (17.5) and tackles for loss (33.5) as a sophomore.
