Dan Wetzel and SI’s Pat Forde & Ross Dellenger break down all of the fallout from round 1 of the 2023 NFL Draft in Kansas City.
One of the biggest storylines surrounding tonight’s first round was Kentucky QB Will Levis not getting selected. Many predicted that he would be a top-10 pick, yet he has fallen to at least the second round. The talk about how online misinformation and the betting markets played a role in his draft night slide.
In quarterback news, Alabama’s Bryce Young went #1 overall to the Carolina Panthers, and he is projected to become one of four quarterbacks from Alabama to be starting next season. The Indianapolis Colts made their big move by selecting quarterback Anthony Richardson out of Florida. Richardson is an elite athlete that has great upside, but the guys wonder how long it will take to improve his accuracy enough to become a solid starter in the NFL.
The guys also talk about Bijan Robinson & Jahmyr Gibbs being the only two running backs selected on Thursday night, Georgia’s Jalen Carter falling to the Philadelphia Eagles at the 9th pick & Ohio State’s Paris Johnson heading to the Arizona Cardinals.
Outside of the NFL Draft, the guys talk about former Notre Dame QB Tyler Buchner transferring to Alabama & whether that is a good choice for his future. They also chat about Colorado coach Deion Sanders not allowing players transferring out of his program to show their game film to prospective schools and the controversy he is facing in that regard.
They close out the show discussing the College Football Playoff expansion schedule and a bizarre accident involving public urination, a man, a train and a cow.
