Five QBs Who Could Be 2023 NFL Draft First Round Picks

Looking forward to the 2023 NFL Draft, there are a lot of questions as to who might be picking first. Many experts suggest the Houston Texans, while others predict the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions or even the Carolina Panthers as potential options. 

If there is something specifically known about next year’s draft, it’s that the focus will be on the quarterback class. While the 2023 draft consists of a long list of overall players at every position, the QB class stands out the most. 

With that said, let’s look at which QBs are the most notable.

How did Michigan Wolverines come to explore their name?

Michigan Wolverines is the common household name, comprising at least 29 varsity teams and all belong to the University of Michigan. All these 29 teams compete in both NCAA’s Division I and in the Big Ten Conference except for women’s water polo. The team has a signature color of two types- maize and blue, although the teams possess different shades of “maize” and “blue”.

Notre Dame DB Kyle Hamilton a Great Fit for Baltimore Ravens

Maybe the best pure prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft, regardless of position, Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton has probably found the perfect home with the Baltimore Ravens. Selected 14th overall, in the first round of the draft last night, Hamilton goes to a franchise synonymous with defense. He’ll greatly help the Ravens Super Bowl chances, and you can bet on Baltimore with a 50 euro no deposit bonus with some long odds, but a potentially huge payoff.

Welcome to our latest 2022 NFL mock draft! We’re headed towards the home stretch now of the NFL Draft talking season. If there is one thing we do know, it’s that the NFL “season” supposedly, is now year round, due to the overhyping of the NFL Draft and the explosions of mock drafts.

Notre Dame Football: Blue-Gold Storylines to Watch

Wednesday is the second biggest day of the spring practice period for Notre Dame football as the Blue-Gold Draft will take place. The draft is a new thing in the program this year, and it will see Jerome Bettis serve as the commissioner.

It’s in advance of the Blue-Gold exhibition at Notre Dame Stadium, the very first of the Marcus Freeman era. Remember, there is never any such thing as a spring college football “game,” anywhere. These are all intra-squad scrimmages, and therefore are all just practice sessions, no matter what nonsense sports television networks try to sell you about all this.

Why Chris Collins Remains in Charge of Northwestern Basketball

If you heard Northwestern basketball coach Chris Collins speak to the media, at the Big Ten Tournament last week, then you already knew he was coming back next season. You didn’t need the public confirmation/vote of confidence from NU A.D. Dr. Derrick Gragg, which came at the end of the workday on Monday, to realize that. Fresh off a 112-76 thumping (a game that was even worse than the score sounds) by Keegan Murray and the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals, Collins conducted his postgame presser with the tone and manner of a man who was very confident in his job security, despite his season being over.

Meanwhile Collins’ alma mater, Duke, led by his mentor Mike Krzyzewski, are the overall favorites this March Madness. Keep that mind if you’re betting this month, like you would at gclub24hr. Like all public statements made by ADs, Gragg’s read like it was crafted by a corporate CEO. He discussed meeting with Collins first hand on Monday and stated: “As our Wildcats enter the offseason, we are committed to evaluating all aspects of the program on and off the court to ensure we are supporting this team with the foundation necessary to compete and win in the nation’s best college basketball conference. I have tasked Coach Collins with making necessary changes to build towards success in the 2022-23 campaign.”

Iowa Hawkeyes Smash Numerous B1G Tourney Records in Routing NU

iowa basketball

Congratulations to the #24 Iowa Hawkeyes! In routing the Northwestern Wildcats today, 112-76, in the Big Ten Tournament’s first full day, they set multiple competition records. They surpassed Maryland’s 97 points scored, on Nebraska in 2016, to reach the #B1GTourney’s very first 100-point game.

Their 43 field goals made eclipsed the previous BTT benchmark of 37 (Ohio State in 2012), with the 19 3-pt FGs made absolutely shattering the old standard, 14, set by the Illinois Fighting Illini, twice, in 2016 and 2018. It was also the most lopsided victory (36) in the history of the B1G Tourney.

Northwestern Basketball Brings Faint NIT Hopes to Clash with Iowa Hawkeyes

Traditionally, power conference teams that finish above .500, but not strong enough to make the NCAA Tournament, go to the NIT. Northwestern basketball is now 15-15, overall, on the season with a chance to get a signature win tomorrow afternoon when they take on the #20 Iowa Hawkeyes in the first full round of the Big Ten Tournament.

Yes, they just recently lost 82-61 to Iowa, with NBA prospect Keegan Murray going off for 26 and 18, but anything can happen in the B1G Tourney. #12 seeded Northwestern, down by as many as 15 (15:28 into the first half, 35-20) came roaring back to win a nail-biter over #13 seeded Nebraska, 71-69, in the conference tournament’s opening game.

How Northwestern Basketball Can Still Salvage this Lost Season

This was not the season that Northwestern basketball fans expected. It certainly wasn’t the campaign that any of them wanted. NU heads into Senior Night, tonight, as a lowly first-day-of-the-Big-Ten-Tournament team. This happens with regularity during the era of Chris Collins as Northwestern basketball coach, and that is absolutely not where you want to be, at all, as a program.

If you have to play on Wednesday night in the Big Ten Tourney, well it means your season is most likely a major washout. It’s not over yet, but Pete Nance, Ryan Greer and Elyjah Williams head into their Senior Day as a part of team that was widely expected to do a whole lot more than they actually did.

Juwan Howard Clearly Has Some Serious Issues to Work Through

University of Michigan head coach Juwan Howard is a 49-year-old man with a reported net worth of about $80 million. Before getting into coaching, he had a very solid, if not storied NBA career. The Chicago native and CVS high grad has accomplished a whole lot in his life, and because of this, it’s so strange to see that he’s thin-skinned.

He has an obvious persecution complex, as evidenced by a string of incidents, punctuated by his throwing a punch at Wisconsin assistant coach Joe Krabbenhoft today. Take a look at the video, in case you haven’t seen it yet, from the ending of today’s 77-63 Badgers win over Michigan.
