10 sleepers the NY Giants should target in the 2023 NFL Draft
If Max Duggan heads to the Big Apple, how long before he usurps Daniel Jones?

Max Duggan has the tools to be a solid backup. He is a true-dual threat quarterback, which is exactly what you want in a backup quarterback.

The case for Max Duggan as a future NFL QB with upside; he may get drafted earlier than everyone expects

He is a gritty runner, with surprisingly good footwork for a quarterback. Duggan is tough, his frame allows him to put his body on the line with no real problem.

As old Mountain West Conference foes BYU and TCU meet again as conference mates, this time in the Big 12, the Horned Frogs are trying to keep BYU fans out of Amon G. Carter Stadium.

Six reasons why the Carolina Panthers are a great landing spot for Bryce Young | Yahoo Sports
Andy Dalton will look to serve as the wise old man on campus, guiding whomever the Panthers take at #1 overall in the ways of the NFL. He may also just perform too well to immediately cede the starting job

Everywhere Dalton has been, he has provided stability at the position as well as being a well-traveled veteran at this point. Bryce enters the league with a high IQ, but with Dalton also in his ear, I expect him to grow quickly.
