The 2022 NFL Draft just ended, but does that mean it is too early for a 2023 NFL Draft watch list? Absolutely not, at least not for us at TDN. We cover the draft 24/7, 365 days a year. 

The landscape heading into the 2022 collegiate season is ever-changing. Players are still entering the transfer portal seeking new destinations. 

As a co-host of the Talent Factor Podcast, which is our college football pod, I am ahead of the curve discussing and watching potential prospects for the 2023 NFL Draft. I rattled names around in my mind to compile an early 2023 prospect list to highlight for this season.
