If Bryce Young was a few inches taller, he’d be a close #2 to Joe Burrow for the title of may all-time #1 quarterback prospect. His mind for the game and ability to handle NFL concepts is extremely rare for a college QB. After Young, this QB class falls off a cliff. C.J. Stroud had a great game against Georgia in the playoff, but lacks any other signature moment against top competition. He’s the most accurate passer in the class, but has a lot of the same problems Justin Fields had with holding the ball too long and taking too long to go through his progression. Will Levis didn’t always display very good accuracy and had some issues with decision making as well. A poor situation at Kentucky is somewhat of a mitigating factor with these concerns, but he’s still outside the first round on my board. Anthony Richardson of Florida is an incredible athlete who, when on, was outstanding. Unfortunately, he spent a lot of time not on. However, he’s got the size and athleticism to play receiver or tight end if QB doesn’t work out.
