Dan Beyer: "The more and more I think about it, I almost think Anthony Richardson has to go number 1. I use The Price Is Right example. How many times do you go on The Price Is Right and go for the car? Let's go for it. Go for the car instead of settling for the exercise equipment. That's what Anthony Richardson is. Yeah, it would be nice to have Bryce Young or CJ Stroud, but if you can come away with the car on The Price Is Right, it's what you want to do. And how many times are you going to be on The Price Is Right to win that car? The game tape says one thing, and I get it. Stroud and Young will be head and shoulders above what Anthony Richardson there. But if you can turn Anthony Richardson into Josh Allen, or something that resembles Josh Allen, that is an absolute win for your franchise. That's not to say that Bryce Young and CJ Stroud aren't going to have success in the NFL, but Anthony Richardson to me is the car on The Price Is Right, that you're going to go for it no matter what. If you get to that number 1 spot, you've got to get Anthony Richardson."

Dan Beyer and Brian Noe discuss the shape of the NFL Draft class after Anthony Richardson's impressive showing at the Combine. Dan explains why Richardson should now be seen as the best QB prospect available, given the immense height of his ceiling in comparison to the rest of the QB class.
