An NFL general manager has reportedly taken a cold view of the 2023 NFL Draft class in the buildup to the highly-anticipated event.
There is plenty of excitement over the league’s incoming rookies and future stars, with talents such as Bryce Young, C.J. Stroud, Jalen Carter, Will Levis, and Anthony Richardson all set for the first round.
However, according to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, a certain NFL GM, who remains anonymous, isn’t all that intrigued.
“If you have 15 first-round grades, then the class sucks,” that GM was quoted as saying. And I got less than 15 this year.”

Surely, not everyone feels the same way about the incoming class or any other class. And time will tell just how good these incoming players will be.
Either one of Young or Stroud should be drafted first overall in 2023. Young has moved past Stroud as the outright favorite, though there were concerns over the former Alabama star’s height and size when he measured 5ft 10in and weighed 204lbs at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this year.
According to Alabama team Dr, Lyle Cain, the quarterback’s size shouldn’t be cause for worry.
“He really went two and a half, three years without any significant trauma,” Cain told The Athletic in a recent interview. “When you can do that at Alabama against the competition Alabama plays, I really think that bodes well in the NFL.”
As for Stroud, he’s been getting some bad press lately and it’s even been suggested that he could slip out of the top seven. But we’d be very surprised if he wasn’t among at least the top three picks of the 2023 draft.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
