Alabama quarterback Bryce Young didn't have to think long before he named his favorite quarterbacks to study: Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers and the Seattle Seahawks' Russell Wilson. 

"For me as far as NFL quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers is someone I definitely look up to on the field and someone I like to take pieces of their game and study and try to implement into my game, as well as Russell Wilson, who also does a lot of really good stuff," Young said.

It makes sense considering that Rodgers and Wilson have been mobile quarterbacks who can make plays with their legs and arms. The same can be said about Young, who was the nation's top dual-threat quarterback in the 2020 class. 

Young said he could list more quarterbacks whom he studies, but in the interest of time, he kept it to two. 

"A lot of quarterbacks are doing a great job right now, and I am trying to emulate and get on that level," Young said.
