One of the adages about grocery shopping is to never do so while hungry.
When browsing the aisles with a churning stomach, one may shop for more items than they would actually eat for the next couple weeks.
The same can be said for taking positions of need in the NFL. Teams desperate to shore up a certain position may not see the whole picture.
NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah said on his conference call Feb. 24 that teams not needing a quarterback have the 2023,
NFL draft class slated differently when it comes to the crop of young signal callers.
“Making calls just around the league, the best way to do the quarterback conversation is talk to the teams that don’t need one,
and then you’ll get kind of an accurate feel just how they evaluate him and what they think,”
Jeremiah said. “Anthony Richardson is the second quarterback for several teams that I talked to.”
The Florida product is generally regarded as the fourth-best quarterback in the class behind Alabama’s Bryce Young,
Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud, and Kentucky’s Will Levis.
