The 2023 NFL Draft is more than a year away, but ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has already made a big “guarantee.”
According to reports out of Alabama, the longtime NFL Draft analyst made a “guarantee” for the 2023 draft on Sunday morning.
Kiper Jr. believes that Alabama quarterback Bryce Young is a lock for the No. 1 overall pick in two years.
“Mel Kiper, Jr. referred to Bryce Young this morning on ESPNU Radio as the “guaranteed” No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL draft,” Alabama reporter Mike Rodak tweeted.
