Why I'm skeptical of Will Levis being projected as a top-10 pick
The Seahawks will need to see a lot more from Levis, but he's hiding: Seaside Joe 1426
If this third-time draft eligible quarterback who was recently mocked to the Seahawks by Mel Kiper is as coveted by NFL teams as many speculate that he is because of arm strength/mobility/system, then I will bring back the same question I’ve had about Will Levis for over a year:
Why didn’t this man declare for the draft in 2022?
I know that many of you are already skeptical of Levis. It’s interesting to see how many people have been quick to point out that Clemson defensive tackle Bryan Bresee is “overrated” (hint: nobody is saying he’s rated highly anymore, so guess what that means) but there isn’t the same pushback on analysts who project Levis as a top-10, top-5, or even the number one overall pick.
Because I know a lot of people are confused by the hype for a quarterback who has so few attractive qualities that aren’t attached to “Well, if only…”:
I feel a little hack even having to point out that Will Levis is overrated because so many others are already doing it. But unlike Bresee, we keep hearing he could be the best quarterback in the entire class from the top draft analysts to Seahawks draft bloggers and I’m just very skeptical that there is that same belief in NFL circles. It feels like the type of talk that teams who need to draft a quarterback would want to be spread to increase the possibility of Levis going over one of the players who they really want.
I want to quickly run through some bulletpoints on Levis and leave it at that.
