TheNFLQB class of 2023 is entering the league with high hopes and expectations.
Even though Bryce Young was expected to be the first quarterback off the board for the better part of the process, there was still a big debate about pretty much every prospect.
And now that we know where they re going to start their NFL careers, we can finally get a glimpse of how they look in their new threads as their respective teams release their pictures ahead of next season.
First look at the top 4 QBs: Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, Anthony Richardson and Will Levis in their game uniform.

Notably, not all of them are expected to start right away.
Will Levis will have to compete with Ryan Tannehill and Malik Willis, and while the Tennessee Titans have reportedly lost faith in the latter, the former is still expected to run it back at QB1 for at least another season.
Young, the No. 1 pick of this year s class, could also have to wait a couple of months before getting his first taste of NFL action.
The Carolina Panthers announced that veteran QB Andy Dalton will handle first-team reps until further notice, citing that they won t rush things with their prized rookie.
C.J. Stroud, on the other hand, is expected to be QB1 right out of the gate for DeMeco Ryans Houston Texans, and he should be an early favorite for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
As for Anthony Richardson, he was perhaps the most debated prospect in this class, and he ll get a prime chance to showcase his skills from day one with the Indianapolis Colts.
