2023 NFL mock draft: NFC East team predictions during Scouting Combine
The NFL Combine is here, and the teams in the NFC East have begun figuring out how they will approach their rosters to get better in 2023. Owners and coaches have started the process of meeting with potential draft prospects to get a feel for the players both from a physical standpoint and a mental one as well. These meetings will be some of the most critical meetings these players will have outside of their official team visits so it’s important they nail them.
While those meetings continue let’s take a look at what a three-round mock for the NFC East could look like once the NFL Draft comes around.

After another disappointing end to the season and watching NFC East rival Eagles make it to the Super Bowl the Cowboys needed to make changes. They are in need of some impact players on both the offensive and defensive sides of the football. On defense, they need a starting cornerback to play opposite Trevon Diggs and they were able to get cornerback Deonte Banks who’s a tall and physical corner with the speed to match up with most receivers in the NFL.
They also need a receiver and Rashee Rice whose height and wing span made him a problem in college caught the eye of the Cowboys and gives them another deep field threat who can also be a threat running after the catch going across the middle of the field. Finally, the Cowboys are going to need to replace the production on left guard Connor McGovern who is primed to get a nice contract in free agency, so the Cowboys selected Andrew Vorhees to come in and take over that left guard spot.
