The recent quarterback class wasn’t sexy enough for a team to pounce at No. 1 overall, but will a gunslinger be the top pick in the 2023 NFL Draft?

Five of the top eight betting choices for top pick at DraftKings are under center, including household names like Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud and Alabama’s Bryce Young.

Crimson Tide outside linebacker Will Anderson Jr., meanwhile, is the consensus favorite among the defenders.

Ohio State is well represented overall, featuring three of the top-six prospects.

Stroud and Jaxson Smith-Njigba left one of the more lasting impressions on the college football nation when they sliced through Utah’s defense like a knife through hot butter.

Phil Jurkovec and Will Levis are a couple quarterbacks who don’t attract much national attention, but both put up solid numbers under the radar and possess good tools.

Jurkovec was hurt a majority of the 2021, and in turn, the Boston College offense flat-out stunk. He’s big (6-5), has a brief stop at Notre Dame on his resume and looked solid in 2020 when he posted 17 touchdowns against five picks.

Levis, meanwhile, morphed Kentucky’s offense into high gear in his first season as a transfer. The Wildcats averaged 32.7 points per game in 2021 – almost 11 more than when Levis arrived.

Bijan Robinson at +10000 is interesting. The talent’s there — his +1800 odds to win Heisman are the fourth-shortest — and he’ll test as one of the most elite athletes in the 2023 class next spring.

However, due to clubs passing up on running backs early in the NFL draft, the Texas star is playing behind the eight ball for No. 1 overall pick.
