Kentucky QB Will Levis showed off his cannon of a right arm at the NFL Combine today.
Levis didn’t run in the 40-yard dash, but took part in the throwing drills, meaning he was able to show off the “cannon” he talked about this week.
The former Kentucky star QB looked good, and he said he felt good, too.
“Definitely was able to, especially on every route, maybe throw different kinds of trajectories on each one and just show different situations, different balls when needed,” Levis said. “I don’t know. I wish I could’ve let it rip a little more on that fade ball. But it’s all good. I liked that last post corner that we ran. I know that’s not really a route that anyone runs, but it’s a way to kind of show off the arm strength a little bit and the accuracy.”
Levis’ strong arm and prototypical size (6-foot-3, 231 pounds) are part of why he’s ranked by ESPN NFL draft insider Mel Kiper Jr. as the top quarterback in a 2023 draft class.
In 2022, Levis completed 185 passes on 283 attempts for 2,406 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions through 11 games, compiling a 7-4 record.
His 2021 stats still stand out in NFL circles. That season, Levis threw for 2,826 yards and 24 touchdowns in 13 games.
