Ranked at No. 7 in the country, the Cats have something that they have not had in the Mark Stoops era, and that is a game-changing quarterback in Will Levis.
The NFL has taken notice as well.
Todd McShay of ESPN, released some info he’s been hearing from scouts across the league, and it appears that Levis has cemented himself as a top three QB in this year's NFL Draft class.
The clear-cut top-3 QBs in 2023 class are CJ Stroud, Bryce Young and Will Levis. Tyler Van Dyke and Anthony Richardson are loaded with traits but have disappointed. Talking to NFL scouts, these QB’s are rising fast: BYU Jaren Hall, UT Hendon Hooker and Fresno St Jake Haener.— Todd McShay (@McShay13) September 27, 2022
Having a QB named right alongside Bryce Young and CJ Stroud should get the Big Blue Nation fired up for the remainder of the season.
It has been no secret that since he arrived on campus that Levis has the arm talent to make it at the next level, and with the help of Rich Scangarello in Lexington now, you are starting to see a more polished QB-prospect.
On the season Levis has completed 67.5% of his passes for 1,185 yards through four games. He has also thrown for 10 touchdowns, and is averaging 10.1 yards per completion.
The big number here is interceptions. A problem for him last year, has remained an issue through the early parts of this season. You have to love the aggressiveness he is playing with on these throws, but need that number to stay put with several big time matchups coming.
Nevertheless, Kentucky has a first round draft pick playing QB this season. For all the struggles we have seen at the position over the years, just sit back and enjoy watching No. 7 sling it around the field.
