The NFL draft is one of the best times of the year for football fans.
Every team will be evaluating players and looking for the next stars in the league.
As always, the talk around this draft season is about the quarterback class.
Trying to figure out who will draft a quarterback and how good they will be is the most interesting part.
ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay came out with his top draft prospect for the 2023 draft.
It is Alabama quarterback Bryce Young.

McShay talked glowingly about Young, calling him a smaller version of Patrick Mahomes.
He was special during his time at Alabama.
Young was the 2021 Heisman Trophy winner and threw 80 touchdowns with only 12 interceptions across three seasons.
The one knock on Young is that he is small, only 195 pounds, and his small frame could lead to injuries.
But, if he goes to a team with a good offensive line, Young has superstar potential.
The rest of the pre-draft process will be thrilling to watch.
While Young looks like the top QB prospect on many boards, there are other contenders for the top spot.
Ohio State’s CJ Stroud, Kentucky’s Will Levis, and Florida’s Anthony Richardson are also good prospects.
The Chicago Bears will have a tough decision in deciding what to do with the number one pick.
They already have Justin Fields, and whispers are coming out that Chicago could move that pick.
Ultimately, the Bears will control the destiny of Young.
If they take him then great, but if not, they are expecting to trade the first pick to a team that will select the Alabama star.NEXT: Chiefs WR Is Trying To Recruit A Former Packers Teammate
