2 Potential Detroit Lions QBs of the future go head-to-head on Saturday

We are just one day away from watching our Detroit Lions take on the Philadelphia Eagles in their first game of the 2022 regular season.

When the season starts, all eyes will be on quarterback Jared Goff, who has a lot to prove as he will be trying to state his case to be the Lions QB of the future.

But if Goff does not prove himself worthy in 2022, the Lions will likely select a quarterback early in the 2023 NFL Draft.

2 Potential Detroit Lions QBs of the future go head-to-head on Saturday

Two college quarterbacks the Detroit Lions could consider in the 2023 NFL Draft are Anthony Richardson out of Florida and Will Levis out of Kentucky.

Well, Lions fans should be paying close attention on Saturday night as Florida will host Kentucky at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN.

Will Levis – Kentucky

Levis is a polarizing prospect at the QB position. But after re-evaluating his most recent tape, I feel he’s worthy of Round 1 capital. And with a year of improvement, he could work himself into the early first-round range. Levis has high-end physical tools. And while he has room for further refinement, there are bright flashes on the operational side.

Levis has a clear path to improvement in 2022, but it will be easier said than done. He has to become much more consistent reading the field and anticipating windows, and he needs to more consistently lead receivers effectively, especially over the middle of the field. But as it stands, he has good mechanics and pocket management, his accuracy is far from a liability, and he does show flashes of anticipation to build on.

Taking Levis’ potential for growth into account, his stable, unteachable traits remain exhilarating. Levis is an athletic, resilient, and supremely talented passer, with the high-end attributes to buoy a franchise-caliber ceiling as he gains more starting experience. -Pro Football Network

Anthony Richardson – Florida

Richardson was only a part-time player last season as former Gators coach Dan Mullen stuck with the inconsistent Emory Jones as his starter. In Mullen’s run-heavy spread attack, Richardson finished the 2021 season with 59.4% completions (38-for-64) for 529 yards and a 6-to-5 touchdown-to-interception ratio, adding 401 rushing yards (7.9 average) and three rushing touchdowns. It will be interesting to see how new head coach Billy Napier adjusts his offense to Richardson’s unique skills.

More potential than production right now, it is extremely premature to predict where Richardson will ultimately be drafted. But it felt wrong to leave him out of the top five quarterbacks for next year because of his sky-high ceiling if he continues to harness his skills and become a more consistent decision-maker. -The Athletic

Nation, who do you think will be the better NFL quarterback? Will Levis or Anthony Richardson? Would you like to see the Detroit Lions draft one of them in 2023?
