Levis originally committed to Penn State, but after 2 years he transferred to Kentucky. After a 2021 campaign that shot him up draft boards, a lot of praise came Will Levis’ way. Before the 2022 season, Levis was put in the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Top 10, Davey O’Brien QB Class of 2022, Manning Award Watch List, Maxwell Trophy Watch List, Walter Camp Player of the Year Watch List, CFPA National Performer of the Year Watch List, and the Reese’s Senior Bowl Watch List. However, a lackluster 2022 for his team as a whole, as well as an injury, caused Levis to miss out on all the big awards.

Will Levis, what an interesting prospect. Not even sure he’s a prospect, he may just be an idea Draft Twitter made up. I digress, I think Levis has all the tools and God-given ability to be extremely good in the NFL. That being said… there are definitely some parts of his game that need ironing out. His arm talent is out of this world, he is an alien in that department for sure… but he can’t really put it on a guy. He has to throw to a spot a lot of the time and let his WR make a play, mostly because of poor ball placement and accuracy. I am not a huge fan of his mechanics, but with how far he can throw a ball it has to be working. He just doesn’t look comfortable stepping up in the pocket unless he is going to run the ball. That being said, he is a tough runner, at 6’3″, 229 lbs he is a bit of a bowling ball and can definitely tank a hit. Levis’ ceiling is definitely super high, but it is going to take a patient organization and a really good coach to unlock him. If Levis finds the right match, the league will be afraid.
