2. Bryce Young
Sticking with quarterback prospects in the 2023 draft, we shift our attention to the other top signal-caller in this year’s class, Bryce Young. He’s considered to be a bit undersized but anyone who has watched him play at Alabama last year knows why he’s in the running to go No. 1 overall next April.
Young tossed for 4,872 yards, 47 touchdowns, and seven interceptions while dashing for three touchdowns. With him being a potential No. 1 overall pick, the Saints have about as good of a chance as trading into that spot to land him as I do making it into the NFL as a kicker.
Whoever ends up with the top spot in the draft likely earned it with poor quarterback play so they’re not going to hesitate to take Young (or Stroud) if armed with the first overall pick. Maybe a team like the Jaguars or Jets ends up with the top pick and if they do, they might be willing to trade down.
The Saints would have to give up a king’s ransom to be in a position to draft Bryce Young but if they could do so, it’d certainly be a bold move.
