The Minnesota Vikings’ selection of BYU quarterback Jaren Hall on Day 3 of the 2023 NFL Draft this Saturday doesn’t seem like it should move the needle.
But with Hall landing in Minnesota at pick No. 164 today, a whopping 12 quarterbacks have now been drafted through the first five rounds.
That’s a new record in the Common Draft Era, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

Hall joined Houston’s Clayton Tune, UCLA’s Dorian Thompson-Robinson and Penn State’s Sean Clifford as quarterbacks taken in the 5th round signal callers this Saturday.
The other three quarterbacks selected on Day 3 were Fresno State’s Jake Haener, Georgia’s Stetson Bennett and Purdue’s Aidan O’Connell.
Day 2 saw just a pair of quarterbacks come off the board. Kentucky signal caller Will Levis was the No. 33 overall pick, the second in the 2nd round, and Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker fell to Detroit in Round 3.
And of course, who could forget the run of quarterbacks atop the 1st round? Alabama’s Bryce Young went No. 1 overall to Carolina, followed by Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud to Houston at 2 and then two picks later, Florida’s Anthony Richardson was taken by the Colts at No. 4.
