2023 Draft QBs who have raised or lowered their stock the most through 3 games
Seaside Bonus: The Pac-12 may be losing some teams, but they've added a few NFL draft prospects at quarterback
Something you will hear all the time about college football, and I mean literally every weekend, is “Wow! This sport is great! Look at this one moment from college football this weekend!” And while that is subjective, maybe for you that is true. I don’t want to rob you of that experience.
However, I will say that it would be weirder if NOTHING INTERESTING happened during a college football weekend than if something UNBELIEVABLE happens: There are hundreds of college football games. Every. Weekend.
Not only the ~60 or so FBS college football games (an NFL week with no byes would be 16 games), but then you’ll often see those crazy finishes and highlights come from FCS programs, of which you’re getting many more dozens of opportunities to see something “unbelievable.”
With that many games, and many thousands of plays, happening so often you must expect to see the unexpected. Every single weekend.

However, if you’re tasked with only watching one or two or five college football games per weekend, you will be a lot more hard-pressed to find the amazing. I have long fancied myself a fan of NFL football and I don’t stray outside of that boundary. I like professional football. I think college football is not the same product but I do recognize the excitement of watching unbelievable, awesome, never-before-seen plays and moments when the opportunity arises to cherry pick the can’t-miss highlights of each weekend.
The third week of college football, as expected, delivered such excitement. If you’re a fan of Pacific Northwest college football, all the better for you!
For the first time in over 100 years, both Oregon State and Washington State are 3-0. They both also now have starting quarterbacks who have entered the picture as 2023 NFL Draft prospects. Not to be outdone, the Washington Huskies can finally say the same again.
Not one of those three starting quarterbacks began his career at Oregon State, Washington State, or Washington.
Could any of them continue their football careers with the Seattle Seahawks?
This week as a bonus post, I’m giving you four names who have their stock up—and three who have their stock down—through three weeks of college football. Even though millions of plays have happened already, I still think it is too early to make any hard determinations about what has happened during the 2022 college season. However, these players are doing the most to help or hurt their stock through the first three games.
And the Pacific Northwest has arguably never had this much NFL QB momentum during the first month of a college season. You can expect a lot more 2023 NFL Draft QB bonus content at Seaside Joe moving forward. Help spread the word by sharing these posts with a Seahawks—or college football-fan.
