1. Kentucky QB Will Levis
Unlike the other the other quarterbacks in this list, Will Levis is someone that transferred to another college. Levis was rated as a 3-star recruit coming out of high school, and opted to join Penn State. As a Freshman in 2019, Levis saw action in four games for the Lions, throwing for 223 yards and two touchdowns. He also added 213 rushing yards.
In 2020 as a sophomore, Levis played again in just four games, passing for 421 yards and only one touchdown. After two years with Penn State, Levis decided to transfer to Kentucky in a move that would place him in a scheme more fitted for his skill set. In his first season with the Wildcats, Levis played in 13 games, throwing for 2,826 yards and 24 touchdowns.
The 22 year old also increased his running game, finishing 2021 with 376 rushing yards. Levis is a prospect who really came out of nowhere. The move to Kentucky was a great decision that paid off, as he is now viewed as legitimate first-round talent.
Levis has great physical talent, with good accuracy and a quick but powerful release. The Kentucky talent also has a great running game, which is an ability desired in the current landscape of the NFL. Levis’ goals for 2022 will be to iron out parts of his game to become more polished. If he does this, then Levis will be a very popular prospect for NFL teams – including the Giants.
