Will Anderson would be EDGE1 in 2022, Jalen Carter would be IDL1, and Bryce Young would be QB1. But outside of that, how many guys would be number 1 for their prospective position in last year's class?
CB Devon Witherspoon and Christian Gonzolez < CB Derek Stingly and CB Sauce Gardner
OT Peter Skoronski and Paris Johnson < OT Ikem Ekwonu or OT Evan Neal
Every 2023 WR < Drake London, Chris Olave, Garret Wilson, and Jameson Williams
The closest, and most interesting IMO, is S Brian Branch vs 2022 S Kyle Hamilton. Branch is no question a safer pick by Hamilton is just such a freak athlete with huge upside.
Again, looking specifically at the first round, this class is very unimpressive.
