NFL Draft scouts with their eyes on quarterbacks like Will Levis, Tyler Van Dyke and Anthony Richardson for 2023 have been disappointed this year.
It’s never too early for NFL teams to start dreaming about the quarterbacks they could pick up in the next draft.
And there is never a shortage of franchises desperately looking for a savior.
There were a few quarterbacks who looked like they might fill that role for teams like the Seahawks and Falcons but these passers have destroyed their stock instead.
3 quarterbacks who have tanked their 2023 NFL Draft stock
Kentucky’s Will Levis
In Week 9, Tennessee gave every NFL team who was considering drafting Will Levis a pretty huge reason to look elsewhere.
The Volunteers made Levis look like someone who had never played the quarterback position before. He completed 59 percent of his passes for all of 98 yards. His three interceptions were devastating for a Kentucky offense that managed just six points.
Tennessee looks like a national championship contender, so there’s no shame in losing to them. Losing to them like that, however, is a definite mark against Levis.
There has been a lot of talk about Levis being the first quarterback off the board in the draft. He did not look like QB1 going against the Volunteers defense.
Prototypical size, a big arm, and the hope of turning him into the next Josh Allen is probably going to make sure he’s selected in the first round. Even so, the idea of anyone taking him over CJ Stroud or Bryce Young feels silly. Sticking around for another year in college would probably be wise.
