Week 5 of the college football season is in the books. And the quarterbacks the Seahawks might look to choose in the 2023 draft were a mixed bag this past weekend.
We nearly saw one of the worst power five teams beat unbeatable Georgia. We saw Alabama look the part, but with Bryce injured. Overall, this was not a great week for fans that are looking at a quarterback to draft in next year’s NFL draft. We saw injuries, inconsistency, and a real divide in tiers.
Geno Smith has been absolutely solid for the Seahawks, but that doesn’t mean Seattle won’t look to upgrade at the position in the spring. Here’s how it all shakes out in our new rankings.
Updated tracker of the QBs the Seahawks should look to choose in the 2023 NFL draft
Number 10: DJ Uiagalelei, Clemson
Previous: Tanner McKee & Tyler Van Dyke
Tanner McKee once again struggled to do much against an improving Oregon Ducks team in a 45-27 loss. Mckee will stay a mystery, and one I don’t wish to see Seattle take unless he falls late in the draft. Tyler Van is likely to transfer rather than enter the draft, so don’t expect to see these names back on the list.
Entering the chat is the wildcard talent from Clemson D.J. Uiagalelei. The former top prospect has had an up and down career at Clemson, but has improved mightily through 5 games. In what may be Clemson’s most difficult game of the year, DJ played a clean game, throwing 209 yards and rushing for 73 yards with 3 combined touchdowns.
Clemson is now on the fast track to an ACC championship and a CFP berth. If this comes to pass, expect DJ to declare and be in the first round conversations. He has a similar style of play as Kentucky’s Will Levis, but can be robotic with his mechanics and decision-making.
