According to ESPN’s Matt Miller, the Indianapolis Colts have Kentucky quarterback Will Levis ranked above Anthony Richardson on their draft board if both players are available.
Levis has been a challenging prospect for analysts to evaluate due to his limited college experience. He had an impressive 2021 season, throwing for 2,826 yards with 24 touchdowns and a 66.0 completion percentage. However, injuries impacted his performance in 2022, where he recorded 2,406 passing yards and 19 touchdowns in 11 games.
Despite mixed reviews, B/R’s NFL Scouting Department has ranked Levis as the fourth-best quarterback and the 21st overall prospect in this year’s draft. He has been compared to Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
With the No. 4 overall pick, the Colts are expected to select a quarterback to serve as their starter in the 2023 season. Levis could be a good fit for the Colts, who have a new head coach in Shane Steichen, previously the offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles.
