There will be a potentially-rich group of quarterbacks taken in the 2023 NFL Draft, and that group includes Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Anthony Richardson and Will Lewis.
Lewis is probably the least intriguing signal-caller of the four, but he is still expected to go pretty high in the draft.
However, Danny Kanell, an analyst with CBS Sports, isn’t buying any of the Lewis hype.
In fact, he thinks Lewis will prove to be a bust in the pros.

He spent his first two seasons of college football at Penn State, where he was mostly a backup to Sean Clifford, and later transferred to the University of Kentucky, where he put up solid statistics.
Lewis had 24 touchdowns in 2021 and threw 19 touchdown passes last season.
Turnovers seem to be of little concern for him — he threw 10 interceptions last season and 13 the year before.
He has shown himself to be a rushing threat as well, recording 391 yards on the ground and nine touchdowns in 2021, but in 2022 he lost 107 yards on the ground for the season.
If Young, Stroud and Richardson are the first three players taken in this year’s draft, a team like the Indianapolis Colts, who have the fourth pick, could have a tough decision to make — should they trade Lewis, loopholes and all? or should they pick a player at a different position?
There are some talented pass rushers available in this year’s draft, as well as running back Bijon Robinson, who is believed to have tremendous potential.
