My opinion, with ain’t worth much (ask Mrs Alumni Guy), is that he slides substantially in the draft. Teams have learned that a qb bust picked in early 1st round will kill your team for a long time.

With his inconsistency, I don’t see a team wasting a top 10 pick on him. You just can’t fix stupid, and AR couldn’t master a Tecmo Bowl playbook with Bo Jackson at RB
Agree but if I were AR and 50/50 to be picked first round, I would take it. I also see him slipping, depending on his combine results- passing. Will he have to work out for staffs or ... ?

He’s not throwing at the combine. No top QBs do. It will be at UF with his favorite receiver. Probably Pearsall. It’ll all be scripted throws.

This guy has AR going #1 overall. I don’t see it , but weirder things have happened.
I’ve seen several mock drafts that have him in the top 10 but that’s the first I’ve seen him at #1. It would be suicide for whoever did it.
I think anyone that needs a QB and doesn’t select CJ Stoud is a moron. That kid can sling it!

Almost all mocks have Richardson as the 4th QB taken, all in the first ten picks:

1. Young
2. Stroud
3. Levis
4. Richardson

What can the Combine actually show that would raise AR's stock? Everyone already knows he's the most physically talented of the four. He can run the fastest and throw the farthest, there's no mystery there. I honestly don't know what he has to gain by even going.

It's the film that's going to hurt him.

Yeah. That guy’s smokin’ dope. Doesn’t have any of the film to support it. Should be around the third or fourth round but GMs love potential. So he’ll be somewhere in 1st round.

Is he going to the combine? I thought many skipped it that had 1st round projections.

And would you pick Young over Stroud? I know I wouldn’t.

AR will make bank. But he'll wash out quickly. How many times have we heard "he's got all the physical tools" throughout the years. That's code for nothing between the ears.

I hope it comes together for him. A kid with his athletic ability most likely didn’t get or require much coaching to be lights out in HS. We know what he got in his limited time at UF. One year with a part-time HC and another with a new HC installing a new offense.

That's based on the supposition that the Bears are willing to risk losing Jalen Carter to Arizona at #3. More importantly, it assumes the Colts are not only willing to gamble on trading up, but on a quarterback that comes in tattooed with questions over his mental game.

If Indianapolis trades up for #1, I see it taking Young. Stroud is pretty much cemented as the #2 quarterback in this draft.

Young and Stroud are the only two QB's that should be considered for the first round. Next best QB, is a 3rd rounder at best. NFL GMs are notorious for making awful draft picks when it comes to QB, which is why Richardson will be a top 15 pick, and Levis will be a first rounder with a Christian Ponder career.

Levis isn't just going to be a first rounder - he'll go in the top 6. Him and his 23 picks the last two years is supposedly "NFL ready".
