Is Bryce Young Not the Best Quarterback in the NFL Draft?
Is Bryce Young not the best quarterback prospect in the 2023 NFL Draft? One expert seems to think that.
CBS Sports' Chris Trapasso released his latest mock draft on Tuesday and had an interesting choice as who the top overall pick would be.
He projects the Indianapolis Colts trading for the No. 1 overall pick and selecting former Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson first. Then, he has Bryce Young going as the No. 2 overall pick to the Houston Texans.
He compared Richardson to a former Alabama and fan favorite quarterback.
"I think Richardson is going to emphatically remove the lid from Lucas Oil Stadium at the NFL combine. That will lead to the Colts taking a chance on him, given the hiring of former Eagles Shane Steichen as head coach. Richardson has similarities to Jalen Hurts and All-Pro upside," wrote Trapasso,
He also gave praises to the former Heisman winner.
"The Texans upgrade the quarterback position in a big way with Young, who has all the improvisational brilliance to succeed in today's NFL," wrote Trapasso.
Now, don't get it twisted, Richardson is a great dual-threat quarterback and has the abilities to be a successful player in the league. But, putting him as the No. 1 overall pick above a former Heisman winner, national championship appearing, SEC champion quarterback that has broken multiple program and conference records is laughable.
So, where do the other Alabama alumni get placed?
He has Will Anderson Jr., going as the No. 4 overall pick to the Chicago Bears, Brian Branch as the No. 24 overall pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and former Alabama player Drew Sanders going as the No. 26 overall pick to the Dallas Cowboys.
So, what do you think? Do you agree with this mock draft?
