If it were up to me, Will Levis would put mayonnaise in his coffee will not only keep him from being selected in the first round but will also land him in jail. Spice-obsessed people need serious reform in their lives. Scars from working at Subway In high school, though, I think Levis wrote a lot about him.
The Cats surprised a year ago, going 10-3 ahead of a fairly easy schedule. I would argue that beating LSU and Florida in a season where both universities fired their head coaches is less impressive than in any other year.
Despite that, the transition from that season, a strong arm and early season cupcakes led Mel Kiper to take the UK signal caller on Bryce Young is the second best QB in draft 2023. Well, if you exclude games against Ohio’s Youngstown State, Northern Illinois and Miami, the Levis didn’t throw more than 230 yards in a single game this year. Including last season, he broke the 300-yard mark just once against a Power 5 school and Tennessee’s defense in 2021 is more like FCS than FBS.
Let’s play a game. Midfielder A has 2,761 passing yards, a completion rate of 66.6, 16 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Midfielder B has 2,406 yards, a Completion rate of 65.4 and 19 touchdowns to 10 interceptions. Now guess who is Levis and who is QB Spencer Rattler of South Carolina.
Rattler was Heisman’s contender at Oklahoma prior to last season, there’s a lot of talent / pedigree on the arm, and no one convinced themselves to put him in the first round. To assume that Heisman’s exaggeration of Rattler is false, but it’s no worse than some NFL GM approaching Levis.
The difference between the two is that Levis is not a dick and has a knack for winning over teammates, the media, and anyone else in an interview or gym setting. Todd McShay says a scout told him that he couldn’t find a single person in the school who didn’t have a lot of praise for Levis. If turned into a professional on-field player, Baker Mayfield would still be in Cleveland (and Deshaun Watson would be unemployed).
I’ve seen Levis compared to Matthew Stafford and Josh Allen, and it’s completely clear irresponsible. Allen at least had a drool-worthy season at Wyoming along with all the physical attributes. He took a total of more than 3,700 yards with a combined 35 points as a junior. If you squint closely enough, Levis .’s 3330 yards, 33 touchdowns campaign as a basis of comparison.
Allen picked up an injury to justify his less than stellar senior season. However, what the hell happened in Lexington? Cat QB has -107 yards on the ground this year, which is a huge number Release is 483 yards from 2021.
Yes, the SEC is a bear, and Kentucky equipped for pheasant. Those defenses are professional units on the border, which makes me all the more worried about Levis as he sometimes looks out of place. But he had 11 109-yard finishes, no TD and was picked in a loss to Vanderbilt less than a month ago.
With the right training and development, maybe he will become Allen. Although that can be said for a lot of talented midfielders in the first round who gave their best and still sucked. Levis is more like Daniel Jones or Mitch Trubisky than Allen or Stafford. Front offices do this every year with a workout feat. They selectively analyzed the tapes, wept over his professional days, and gasped at a great interview as if the prospect hadn’t been taken care of by a manager. squirrel for many years. They were looking for any sign that he was the promised prince when all they had to do was follow his career in Kentucky to know he wasn’t.
If you’re like me, the fact that Levis added a little Hellmann’s to his hazelnut mix is more than enough to make you feel uncomfortable with this social killer. However, if you need a more comprehensive, detailed argument, you have it.
