Bananas, coffee and mayonnaise beware of the best UK QB since the Hefty Lefty

Weird dietary habits aside, Will Levis can really play quarterback. It kind of makes you wonder what James Franklin didn’t see in him at Penn State that allowed him to transfer to Kentucky. For a team better known for defensive prowess under head coach Mark Stoops, we do wonder if Levis can build off his breakthrough season despite Liam Coen going back to the Los Angeles Rams.

If Levis plays up to his capabilities, he can leave Lexington as the most celebrated quarterback since Jared Lorenzen (RIP). Levis not only has a bright NFL future ahead of him, but another 10-win season will guarantee him being a first-round pick. If six quarterbacks go in the first round next spring, Levis would have to be among that half-dozen, right? He has immense talent for sure.

While Levis does not have universal praise right now, he can make every skeptic a believer in 2022.

Pick Analysis. player. 888. Scouting Report. QB. Virginia Cavaliers. Brennan Armstrong. 9

Is Brennan’s arm strong enough to lead Hoos out of Hooville and into Charlotte?

Although the ACC may not be the best conference in college football this season, it has the best quarterbacks. One guy who has been slipping under the radar a bit is Brennan Armstrong at Virginia. This southpaw has the arm talent to carry the Hoos out of Hooville to wherever they want to go this fall. Of course, Armstrong will play for a first-time head coach in Tony Elliott this season.

We know that he was been well-coached having played for Bronco Mendenhall previously. Playing in the easier of the two ACC divisions is a huge plus for him. However, few people outside of Charlottesville really think the Cavaliers will have what it takes to get to Charlotte out of the ACC Coastal. Here is to Armstrong, Elliott and the rest of the 2022 Virginia team to prove us all wrong.

This is the year that Armstrong cements his place as the best UVA quarterback since Matt Schaub.
