After Will Levis was selected in the second round of the NFL Draft just a few months ago, new Kentucky QB Devin Leary is being talked about in some draft circles.

Leary saw his name fall off some NFL radars after suffering a torn pectoral muscle last year at NC State. Now at Kentucky, with a chance to shine in the SEC, Leary could become an attractive target for NFL squads.

The Athletic’s Dane Brugler has Leary as the #9 senior quarterback in college football, between two other SEC QBs in South Carolina’s Spencer Rattler (8) and KJ Jefferson from Arkansas (10).

Next year is viewed as a strong QB class with Caleb Williams at USC and Drake Maye at UNC leading the way, along with guys like Michigan’s JJ McCarthy and Quinn Ewers at Texas being projected highly too.

Leary will have the stage to show what he can do in the SEC, and while he doesn’t have the physical traits of a guy like Will Levis, who saw his stock rise after a season in Liam Coen’s offense, Leary has a chance to put up better numbers and really shine in Coen’s system.

Who knows at what point, but I think we’ll hear Devin Leary’s name called in the 2024 draft.
