The 2022 NFL draft class was deprived of top quarterbacks with Kenny Pickett being the only QB taken in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft. In the 2023 class it will be very different with top notch quarterback prospects like Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Will Levis and Tyler Van Dyke. Who will be the top pick in the 2023 NFL draft and how many quarterbacks will go? Players like Will Anderson, Jalen Carter, Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Bijan Robinson are worth watching outside of the top QB Draft prospects.
