Seahawks 2023 QB targets 9 through 7
Number 9: KJ Jefferson
NFL Comp: Jacoby Brissett
KJ Jefferson had a chance to beat a really good Liberty team, and in turn, set the program up for a nice bowl game. Instead, the Razorbacks found themselves down 21-0 just before halftime and eventually fell 21-19.
Jefferson struggled, throwing two interceptions and being asked to do too much. It’s important to remember that Jefferson is likely never going to be that QB that slings it 40 times a game. He’s a game manager that will be a force in the run game and nearly unstoppable in short-yardage situations.
Number 8: Dillon Gabriel
NFL Comp: B version of Tua Tagovailoa
The Oklahoma Sooners revival essentially came to an end on Saturday in an ugly 38-35 loss at home to Baylor. While the defense definitely didn’t play well, Gabriel and his sudden propensity for turnovers are alarming for the next level.
He had a combined 330 yards of offense and 3 touchdowns, but the 3 interceptions were too much to overcome. If Gabriel can’t take care of the ball as Russell Wilson did early in his career, Gabriel will have a hard time getting drafted.
Number 7: Jaren Hall
NFL Comp: Zach Wilson
The rollercoaster season and mysterious play of Jaren Hall continued this week, as Hall put in one of his best performances of the year in a 31-28 road win at Boise State.
Hall finished the game throwing 29-42 for 377 yards and rushed for another 82 yards with 4 total touchdowns. He did throw two picks, but I was just impressed that he was allowed to be the gunslinger that he showed only in spurts.
Hall is very intriguing, he has a fantastic arm and mobility, but not the greatest size. The tape is choppy at best, but there’s a legitimate NFL quarterback in there.
