Here we go then. The start of the most important draft season in franchise history.
Why is it so important? When’s the last time the franchise traded away a star quarterback? The judgement of that trade will be made based on Russell Wilson’s success in Denver, plus whatever Seattle does with their draft picks next year.
The next few months are absolutely critical. This is the start of a marathon. I intend to watch multiple college games per week with a specific focus on quarterbacks.
This is an open thread to discuss everything. I will post some review notes later.
Here are the games I am watching over the weekend:
Colorado vs Michigan
Oregon vs Georgia
Utah vs Florida
Notre Dame vs Ohio State
Florida State vs LSU
I will also be watching Clemson vs Georgia Tech on Monday.
Will Levis and Kentucky start today at home to Miami-Ohio. Their first big test will be next weekend at Florida.
Tyler Van Dyke begins against Bethune-Cookman. In two weeks time Miami goes to Texas A&M which will be interesting.
It’s a great test first up for C.J. Stroud and I’ll be watching Notre Dame vs Ohio State closely (like most people, presumably).
Bryce Young and Alabama start the season against Utah State.
These are the four names to keep an eye on, in my opinion.
On the fringes of the discussion, hoping to emerge, will be Anthony Richardson. Hopefully he gets more than 66 throws this year so we can get a good look at him. I’ll be watching him vs Utah in a good contest first-up.
I have no faith in Spencer Rattler but his South Carolina debut is against Georgia State.
I’m interested to see how Dorian Thompson-Robinson gets on for UCLA this year. He faces Bowling Green today. Another PAC-12 quarterback, Stanford’s Tanner McKee, takes on Colgate.
The hype for Arkansas quarterback K.J. Jefferson is way too rich for my liking but Arkansas play a much-changed Cincinnati in their opener.
I’ll be looking out for other quarterback prospects too. My pre-2022 season reviews of the entire QB class can be found here.
