Top quarterback prospect Caleb Williams is largely expected by most to be the top quarterback selected in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft. And according to Fox Sports college football analyst Joel Klatt, Williams is well deserving of that honor.

Klatt released a ranking of his top quarterback prospects to come out of college since 2012 on Twitter/X on Tuesday. And Williams was at the very top of that list.

“If I were to rank, as prospects, the QBs since 2012 (Andrew Luck, RGIII) here is how they would stack up. 1) Caleb Williams 2) Trevor Lawrence 3) Joe Burrow 4) Drake Maye 5) Bryce Young.”

Klatt offered further analysis of this list on his show Tuesday.

That is certainly some high praise for a quarterback like Williams who never even experienced team success on the highest level during his time at USC. Nearly every other quarterback on that list aside from Drake Maye was able to capture a National Championship at the collegiate level.

Regardless, Maye’s inclusion in this list along with Williams should tell you exactly how high-level this draft class is at the quarterback position in the eyes of Klatt.

As you would expect, fans had plenty to say about Klatt’s list on social media.

With this in mind, chances are we could see Maye and Williams go very highly in the 2024 NFL Draft.

That is at least if the Chicago Bears are going to move off of Justin Fields at quarterback, which is not a guarantee. But even then, we could see a scenario where the Bears trade the No. 1 pick to a team interested in drafting a quarterback. And Klatt believes they could be getting a very special one in Caleb Williams.
