Football fans are buzzing with excitement over the 2023 NFL Mock Draft that recently hit the internet. According to the With the First Pick Podcast, which conducts a pro-day tour of the top four quarterbacks, Anthony Richardson, of the University of Florida, has become a solid contender for the third quarterback spot. The new pro-day tour travels across the country, showcasing the top quarterbacks in the draft process, providing much-needed insight into these learners' training and muscle development.
Richardson's recent pro day performance was deemed legendary, leaving fans and NFL staff alike in awe of his physical prowess. Richardson's impressive physicality has firmly cemented his spot as the third-best quarterback in this year's draft class. He's become a top contender for teams like the Seahawks and the Colts, with predictions he could go even higher in the final weeks before the draft. However, to the shock of many, a trade from further down the board managed to snag one of the most monstrously gifted players in recent memory at No. 3 instead of Richardson. While the hunt for the best quarterback rages on, it's imperative to keep an eye out for Richardson's potential growth and potential landing spots as draft day approaches.
In the meantime, another notable player, quarterback Will Levis, has seen a steady drop in his draft rankings. Levis has slipped to the bottom third of the first round with the No. 23 pick. With a little more time left in the pre-draft process, there could still be plenty of surprises in store. Don't forget to check out the With the First Pick Podcast, which airs three times a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at 2 pm ET. You can tune in via the NFL on CBS YouTube channel or on iTunes, Spotify, and various other popular podcast platforms.
Last but not least, the 2023 NFL Mock Draft only features 31 picks this time around. Why, you ask? Unfortunately, the Miami Dolphins were stripped of their first-round pick due to tampering allegations. This development does not make the upcoming draft any less exciting as there still is plentiful incredible talent to look out for that does take part in the draft.
