Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Very accurate on intermediate and long passes; flashes anticipation and placement on intermediate outs and the ability to lead receivers on deeper throws.
  • His stats in 2021 probably underrate his performance - where most of his interceptions were a result of receiver mistakes as appose to throwing inaccuracy
  • Showed incredible improvement after transferring to the UK - if this continues he could develop into a serious NFL talent
  • Has an elite quick-release alongside fast info processing makes him an ideal for a Sean McVay style offense
  • Ideal size and stature for the position at 6-2 and 232 lbs - enables to him to take a beating and get right up
  • Consistently puts the ball into tight windows over the middle, throwing to spot on slant or between zone defenders before the receiver is open
  • Very confident passer and shows good accuracy and feel when in rhythm. Showed better ball placement from past years and throws very catchable passes. Puts too much air in some of his throws and needs to show a lower trajectory on deep throws.
  • Has well-developed footwork and has experience operating from both the shotgun and under center
  • Possesses an NFL arm. Gets the ball from one hash to the opposite sideline in a hurry. Has the zip to hit tight windows on short and intermediate throws.
  • Good accuracy overall, including excellent accuracy on short timing routes to backs and receivers, placing the ball slightly in front to lead receivers to potential yardage after the catch.
  • Athletic quarterback who is a threat to leave the pocket and gain positive yardage at any time
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Sails throws to either sideline; receivers make him look good with acrobatic catches. Back-foot throws are not always accurate.
  • Needs to improve his touch at all levels and know when to gun it and when to take something off his throws
  • Has had an issue with patience in the pocket - quickly gives up on the play and takes off
  • Not always great going through progressions - has resulted in him throwing too many picks
Scouting Report: Summary
Will Levis came from nowhere last year and is now looked at as a legitimate first-round talent. He has great physical gifts as well as good accuracy and powerful quick release as well a natural feel for the game. Levis in addition is an impressive runner who reminds us of Josh Allen when he takes off. He however is still a little raw and will hopefully use the 2022 season to work out the issues in his game.
