    Richardson is all physical talent at this point,
    Levis has been good this game against a strong defense.
    Levis is a Josh Allen clone, Richardson could be too. They’re both raw but Richardson is super raw

    In how many years could they be functional NFL QBs?

    Levis is way more advanced, but still....?

    He's obviously having a bad game tonight. However, I think he has talent. He will need an additional year if he decides to come out. Levi's has better touch on his ball right now but I think Richardson offers better long term potential.

    I think Bryce Young is ready right now, so is Stroud.

    That is the question.
    I think Levis is closer. But still

    What makes Richardson have better long term potential? Age?
    Levis is the prototype, big, fast, rocket for an arm.

    What about Haynes King? The best QB athlete in this class?

    And Stroud has had a good game against a bad team and a meh game against an over rated team.
    Young had a great game against a cupcake and solid game against an average Texas team.
    I wouldn’t say either is ready right now, Young is small and Stroud has nothing special about him and he’s an Ohio St qb

    I wouldn’t call Texas average. Defense looks pretty good.

    He’s had the same amount of starts as Richardson. King is at worst the 2nd most athletic QB in the country right now. Both he and Richardson could flame out. Richardson had a far worse game

    I seen reports of him really only being 5’10 and not even 6’.
    I really like the arm talent and he can extend plays. Make plays on schedule and off. I like him way better than Stroud, but the size still worries me. I’m worried he’s the righty, shorter version of Tua

    Tua wishes he had half the arm talent Bryce does.

    While size and possibly durability is a concern the kid is special I have to admit it…and since I’ve seen the comparisons to brees I can’t unsee it now.

    Russ is 5’10ish but way more stockier
    Murray is 5’10ish but doesn’t even have half the intangibles or IQ of Bryce

    The poise
    The demeanor
    All the things you look for this kid has

    I’ve been the biggest Mills supporter and will continue to be but last Sunday was a real let down that he couldn’t lead us late in that game…We have to be very very sure that Mills is the guy but any doubt and I mean any we must draft a QB if we happen to have a top 3/5 pick

    Kyler also has twice the athleticism that Bryce does.
    Tua was lauded for his arm talent coming out, it’s still yet to be seen.

    Totally agree on the last part

    Levis and Young are who I would want in the first.
    If we could get Anderson and Levis (if Mills isn’t the guy) I think that’s a big win

    I'm almost certain we will have a Top 5 pick at least. However, to get Young, we may have to be Top 2 or 3. Some scouts are going to question his size, which may cause him to slide.

    But from what I saw in the 4th qtr at UT, I'm sold. The poise alone this kid showed was elite and the fact that he was able to escape pressure and make plays when needed was special too.

    I'm definitely a fan.

    I think Stroud may slide to somewhere in the Top 10-12 range. I know he's not as athletic, which makes me nervous but he is one of the most accurate passers I have seen in a long time.

    He reminds me a lot of Dak Prescott but more accurate.

    Im more of a Stroud fan but would be very happy with Young. Kid is a winner, high iq, and can extend plays.
