Will Levis to Jake Locker? Jaxon Smith-Njigba to Julian Edelman? PFF's 2023 NFL Draft Guide includes player comps for every top prospect, courtesy of lead draft analyst Mike Renner.

Here are player comps for each of the top 150 prospects on the PFF draft board.

1. QB Bryce Young, Alabama

Player Comp: Smaller Deshaun Watson

Bottom Line: An offensive coordinator will have to do some things to scheme around Young's height, but it's a small price to pay for everything else he brings to the table.
