Seahawks 2023 QB targets: Numbers 3 through 1 Week 3
Number 3: Bryce Young, Alabama
After the battle in Texas last week, the Crimson Tide destroyed Louisiana Monroe 63-7. Young had 4 total touchdowns, and a sick spin move, but he also had a couple of interceptions. We’re on a quarter of the way through the regular season, but Young doesn’t quite look as dominant as last year.
NFL Comp: Somewhere between Tyler Huntley and Kyler Murray
Number 2: Will Levis, Kentucky
Levis continues to be a physical specimen that needs to refine his passing skills. He can make any throw in the country, but can he consistently do it? Against an overmatched Youngstown state team, Levis threw for nearly 400 yards and 3 touchdowns, but with a couple of picks like Bruce Young.
Watching Levis, it’s so hard not to see the Josh Allen we saw figure things out in the first couple of years in the NFL. Allen became an MVP contender because of the team and environment he went to. The same fate will likely fall on Levis.
NFL Comp: B+ version of Josh Allen
Number 1: C.J. Stroud, Ohio State
My top overall QB prospect continues to hold down the top spot. Against Toledo, Stroud put up a ridiculous 22/27 passing for 367 yards and 5 touchdowns. Yes, he had a huge talent advantage across the field, but he continues to be the most accurate QB I’ve seen this year, and he can make just about every throw.
I’ve been most impressed with his pocket presence, as he continues to evade sacks while looking to throw rather than run. Stroud will be in the hunt for the Heisman, national championship, and #1 draft pick, he’s the best QB prospect to come out of Ohio State.
NFL Comp: Joe Burrow
