NFL draft 2023: Ranking deepest position groups in the class from first-rounders to midround risers, including quarterback, wide receiver

Yes, the 2022 NFL draft class lacked surefire franchise quarterbacks, and even the deep positions -- including offensive tackle and wide receiver -- were (perhaps unfairly) compared to previous classes and deemed "not as good as last year" in many cases. But what about this 2023 class? It looks stellar and deep, good news for both decision-makers employed by NFL teams and hopeful fans.

The 2023 class features a plethora of quarterbacks, a running back group that could put a pair of players in the first round and excellent depth across the defensive positions, with star power at pass-rusher, defensive tackle, linebacker and cornerback. But what are the deepest position groups? Which positions offer up excellent prospects from the top of the first round right down through the midrounds?

Let's rank and take a closer look at the five deepest positions, including a loaded group of signal-callers that could rival other recent stacked classes. We'll also pick out the thinnest position in the class and explain why it could be a problem for some NFL teams looking for young upgrades.
