The next quarterback is similar to Anthony Richardson in that he will be drafted based on what he could become versus what he showed at the collegiate level. Will Levis began at Penn State and after two years there transferred to Kentucky and played in 24 games over that stretch.

Levis has by far one of the best arms in this year’s draft class and threw for over 5,200 passing yards and had 43 passing touchdowns. However, decision-making appears to be a concern and he could trust his arm too much with 23 interceptions during that stretch.

The potential is undoubtedly there and he has all the physical tools that NFL teams look for in quarterbacks with good size at 6’4″ and 222 pounds to go along with the big arm. However, any team that selects him in the NFL Draft is going to have to be patient and let him work on play recognition and decision-making.
