Based on Ryan's reworked deal, they are likely looking at the 2023 QB class, which will likely be lead by DJ Uiagalelei and will be far deeper overall.
I agree with the overall context - that next year will be shallower , but disagree quite a bit with the highlighted part.
On a side note, i think it's important to add to Swarms good post & say that with potentially 8 QBs going in these 2 drafts? Cant think of any other B2B yrs like that.
2022 should be thought of as more of as a "return to the norm", than a "down year"
I think there will be more than 1 QB drafted in 2022.
On NFL need alone, if not talent.
For historical context, 2013 was the last time only 1 QB was drafted - which also coincided with the last time a QB wasnt drafted top 15 either. Thanks EJ
2000 the year before that.
So, the odds are against it - usually it's 2-3.
Also, Howell's good, but so is Spencer Rattler
A year is a long time, but both look locked into 1st rnd slots as things stand & both occupy the top slots for 2021 Heisman betting (Rattler is #1, Howell #2 per vegas odds)
Not sure where Slovis & Strong will end up, but those are a cpl of the "other" guys (Barring, as Swarm said, someone a la Wilson) that teams would be planning to take a hard look at for 2022, as things stand right now.
