We have reached week 11 of a fascinating college football season, and it is time to officially enter our first level of cuts. Just like this college football season has seen teams rise and fall, with only a few left standing, the same can be said for our QB rankings. Who might, if anyone, the Seahawks choose in the 2023 NFL draft?

Today, we’re going to go through my top-4 tiers of quarterbacks from interesting undrafted projects, to guys that will be nearly impossible to pass with a top-ten pick for the Seahawks.

Top tiers of QBs the Seahawks should look to choose in the 2023 NFL draft: Week 11

Tier 4- Take a late (5th to UDFA) tier:

Jayden Daniels, D.J. Uiagalelei, Stetson Bennett, Max Duggan, K.J. Jefferson, Dillon Gabriel, Tanner McKee, Dorian Thompson-Robinson

All of these quarterbacks have a ton of potential, but also a ton of red flags. Almost all of these quarterbacks bring a mobility weapon to the table that can be tantalizing, yet lack consistency. Quarterbacks like Daniels, Uiagalelei, Gabriel, Jefferson, and Thompson-Robinson all fit this category.

Quarterbacks Stetson Bennett and Max Duggan don’t necessarily fit the mold of a typical NFL quarterback, but they’ve been absolutely solid this year in leading undefeated squads to the brink of a college football playoff spot. Think of these guys in a best-case scenario as a modern Kirk Cousins. They may only ever hold a clipboard, but they can help the franchise off the field, as much as on the field.

Tanner McKee is a unique case. He looks like Joe Flacco, he’s got the size and the arm of a prototypical NFL quarterback. He probably is a 1st round pick if Stanford was 7-3 instead of 3-7. His team is terrible and it’s impossible to see what kind of player he truly is. Consider him one of the bigger wildcards in the draft, assuming he declares.

If Seattle is honest in their desire to lock up Geno Smith to a major contract, then these are the guys to look to for backups going forward.
