This 2023 NFL QB Draft Class Doppelganger Twitter Thread Is Hilarious

The NFL Draft can sometimes be overwhelming, so this Twitter user took the liberty of making all the big named quarterbacks expected to be drafted a little more familiar.

Film, TV, and Podcast producer Jim Weber decided to make some “draft comparisons,” but not the usual ones where young QBs are compared to the likes of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. These comparisons are relating QB faces with recognizable TV, movie characters and other notable celebrities.

You may not know football or football players very well, but you will surely know these 2023 QB Draft Class Doppelgängers. Let’s get into it:

TCU QB Max Duggan “Looks Like” Steve the Pirate from Dodgeball

This one is spot on, and I think there’s a reason Weber led with this one. Duggan just recently led the TCU Horned Frogs to the 2023 National Championship game, but his team ultimately fell short.

Steve the Pirate, on the other hand (or peg leg), won a National Dodgeball Championship on ESPN “The Ocho,” so who is the more accomplished athlete here?

Purdue QB Aidan O’Connell “Looks Like” Rod Farva from Super Troopers

Yep, this one is spot on. Are we sure the Purdue quarterback isn’t the actual son of Farva actor J.D. Heffernan?

The resemblance is uncanny! I guess that’s the point of this list…

Kentucky QB Will Levis “Looks Like” Thad Castle from Blue Mountain State

I think this one is giving a little too much credit to Will Levis, who might be familiar to you because he is the QB that eats banana peels and puts mayo in his coffee.

Fictional QB Thad Castle is a legendary football player, and Levis still has a lot to prove on the field. Especially with his disgusting food and drink choices off the field…

Tennessee QB Hendon Hooker “Looks Like” UFC Fighter Jon Jones

Hendon Hooker was on pace to lead the University of Tennessee to the “promised land” last year before his untimely injury. The prospect certainly has a lot of fight in him, similar to his doppelgänger Jon “Bones” Jones.

What would Hooker’s UFC nickname be? I’ll present the option of Hendon “The Booker” Hooker. Sounds great…even though I’m not sure what it’s supposed to mean.

Ohio State QB CJ Stroud “Looks Like” Rapper Tyga

CJ Stroud is undoubtedly a great, competitive QB, but his low wonderlic IQ tests scores have made his name tumble down the draft board.

He’ll have a lot to prove to NFL teams since their interest in him has “Faded,” but Stroud knows that he has “Still Got It.”

Those are two of Tyga’s more well known songs if you didn’t get what I was doing there.

Alabama QB Bryce Young “Looks Like” Jake from State Farm

This one made me laugh. I have to say, Young and Jake from State Farm look a lot alike. Some have been saying that Bryce Jones could go number one overall in the NFL Draft, but I’m sure teams wouldn’t mind to have some sort of insurance in case the pick doesn’t work out.

Like a good neighbor…

BYU QB Jaren Hall “Looks Like” A.C. Slater from Saved By The Bell

This one is a bit of a stretch, but I still see why Weber put these two on the “look-alike” list. I think it’s mainly the hair styles.

Jaren Hall definitely doesn’t look like modern day Mario Lopez, though Lopez hasn’t aged all that much.

Georgia QB Stetson Bennett “Looks Like” Actor Timothée Chalamet

Pretty funny that the Twitter user decided to use a picture of Bennett’s from his iconic, hungover Good Morning America interview the morning after winning the national championship with the Bulldogs.

However, the relaxed look that Bennett sports does look very similar to the “focused celebrity red carpet look” that Chalamet often showcases.

All in all, the list was very well done. Now you, the reader, know more about who might be drafted tonight in the 2023 NFL Draft.

You can even shout out “man that guy looks like Steve the Pirate” to get a good laugh if you happen to be watching with other fellow fans of football.
