Top247 QB Demond Williams Jr reacts to new Pac-12 offers

Early projections indicate as many as seven quarterbacks could come off the board as first-round picks in the 2023 NFL Draft, which would be a record-setting run on signal callers after only one was selected this cycle. Handicapping the position from a scouting perspective entering the 2022 college football season begins at the top, where Heisman frontrunners Bryce Young and C.J. Stroud lead their respective programs as national title contenders.

From there, the ACC takes center stage — a league blessed with several top-end players at the position including a handful in the Atlantic Division. Clemson has been the College Football Playoff mainstay in recent years at the top of the league standings before Pittsburgh and Kenny Pickett won the ACC last fall, unseating the Tigers.

The Panthers will have a new quarterback in the early-round conversation for 2023 as former USC starter Kedon Slovis takes over.
