Which Teams Could Target a QB in the 2023 NFL Draft

With the majority of free agency now having shaken out, we have a clearer picture of which teams may be in the mix for a first-round QB in 2023. The Carolina Panthers pulled off a blockbuster trade with the Chicago Bears to jump to number one overall. That now puts them in a prime position to draft their future QB, with Andy Dalton as the bridge option.

The Houston Texans sit at number two overall and have not added a serious contender to be a starting QB. By bringing in Case Keenum, they appear to be adding a veteran option who can be the rock that both Davis Mills and a rookie QB can learn from in the QB room.

Sitting at fourth overall is the Indianapolis Colts. While they have added Gardner Minshew in free agency, they are likely still in the market to draft a QB in 2023. The presence of Minshew and Foles will provide both competition and veteran stability around any potential rookie addition.

Some other teams that could be in the mix to draft a QB would include the Washington Commanders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Tennessee Titans.
