Tuesday Headlines: Will Levis as QB1 in the NFL Draft?

Levis is gaining steam to be the first QB off the board in this year's draft.

Good morning BBN!

After a busy Christmas weekend, the Kentucky Wildcats will be back in action on the court and the football field this week, but one of the biggest storylines heading into these winter months is going to be Will Levis.

The Kentucky quarterback declared for the NFL Draft several weeks ago, and with the college football season only a few weeks from being complete, NFL front offices are starting to put together their draft boards for this year's class.

It has gone back and forth quite a bit this season, but with the Combine and workouts right around the corner it seems NFL Draft guru, Mel Kiper, think Levis will be the first QB taken on draft night.

This debate has gone on all season between Levis, Bryce Young, and CJ Stroud. It appears that the physical traits, and arm talent that Levis has might be what pushes him over the top or even to become the No. 1 overall pick.

For Kentucky fans I don't know if you could write a more perfect story, especially with Liam Coen returning to Lexington. The Cats will need to continue to find QB talent whether in the portal or in the high schools ranks. Having the OC return that turned a player into a No. 1 overall pick is certainly a good thing on that front.

This is going to be a fun story to watch as the winter unfolds.
