Simms, who says Bryce Young of Alabama will be the #1 draft pick and suggests possibly CJ Stroud of Ohio State will be No. 2 says, “The third one will be interesting. Could it be Kentucky’s Will Levis or Florida’s Anthony Richardson? That’s what makes it fun to watch and talk about. We know Bryce Young goes first as he canceled all his visits and that tells me he knows he is going first in the draft. If you are a quarterback in the NFL right now, you better keep working because there are a lot of good quarterbacks coming out and more right behind them.”
