Tracking the QBs Seahawks should take in 2023 NFL draft: Week 10
Seahawks 2023 QB targets numbers 2 and 1
Number 2: Anthony Richardson
NFL Comp: Young Cam Newton
AR15 had one of his best games of his career on the road at Texas A&M, in a 41-24 victory. Richardson was a superstar. A man amongst boys, going off for a combined 280 yards and 4 touchdowns. He threw the ball well, and he ran over and around the Aggies defense, including a 60-yard scramble for a touchdown.
It was a dominant performance and showed the special skills that truly separate Richardson’s skill set from everyone else on this list.
The offense he runs at Florida leaves a lot to be desired in terms of his game translating to Sundays, but there’s no denying his potential for greatness.
Number 1: CJ Stroud
NFL Comp: Joe Burrow
If you thought Michael Penix had to deal with bad weather, he was in paradise compared to what CJ Stroud and Ohio State had to deal with at Northwestern. In a legit monsoon, there was not going to be a passing game for the explosive Buckeye offense. Forced to get creative, Stroud showed growth in my eyes in a 21-7 win.
Stroud only threw for 76 yards, but he managed the game with the conditions really well, and he also finally showed his mobility, rushing for 79 yards, including a 44-yard scamper. Stroud is a master in the pocket and can make every throw on the field. His ability to be a mobile quarterback can be the separation he needs to be the top overall pick.
