In our mock draft 2.0 from early October, we wrote this: 'This quarterbacks class looks considerably deeper than last year's version.' Yeah ... about that. Here's what we do know: Bryce Young is special, and if he was 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, he'd be the unanimous No. 1 pick. Instead, he's listed at 6-foot, 190 pounds, and there is no precedent for quarterbacks that size having success in the NFL. Basically, Young is the precedent, and based on what we've seen this season, we're quite comfortable having him as not only QB1, but the No. 1 overall pick in mock draft 3.0. After that, things get interesting. C.J. Stroud has been good, but he's not better than Justin Fields was at this stage of his Ohio State career, and he obviously doesn't do what Fields can with his legs. Then there's Will Levis, who has been banged up all year while playing behind a suspect offensive line at Kentucky. Whether NFL teams can overlook those 'extenuating circumstances' and still make Levis a top-5 selection is another conversation, though the thought of getting the next Josh Allen -- even if there's just, say, a 5% chance -- will no doubt push him up draft boards.
