Anthony Richardson meeting with Ravens.

One of the most intriguing prospects in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft is Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson. He turned heads by running an unreal 4.44-second 40-yard dash at the NFL combine, the second-fastest time ever by a quarterback. His raw physical skills seem to have many NFL teams intrigued.

That list includes the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens have notable issues with star quarterback Lamar Jackson, failing the reach a contract extension which ultimately led to Jackson requesting a trade earlier this month after being franchise tagged. This has seemingly led to an interest in another insanely athletic player at the quarterback position in Anthony Richardson.

NFL insider for The Score, Jordan Schultz reported on Wednesday that Richardson is expected to meet with a number of teams after his pro day. Baltimore is among the teams listed, which is certainly a very interesting development.

Many NFL fans took notice of this report and believe that Richardson would be a great alternative for Baltimore should they be unable to retain Jackson.

This could ultimately be a bargaining chip for the Ravens to get Jackson to rescind his trade request and try and renegotiate a contract extension. However, there could also be some real interest on the Ravens’ side.

Baltimore currently holds the No. 22 pick in the first round of the upcoming draft. Anthony Richardson is projected by most to be at least a top-10 pick in the draft. This means that the Ravens would almost certainly need to move up to select him.

Jackson could be used as a trade piece to potentially make this move. The Indianapolis Colts hold the fourth pick in the draft, and general manager Chris Ballard has already hinted at interest in Jackson.

It seems like almost anything is on the table for the Ravens, but the plot has definitely thickened by the intriguing development including Anthony Richardson.
