Kentucky Wildcats quarterback Will Levis will declare for the 2023 NFL Draft.

Kentucky Wildcats quarterback Will Levis is one of the most polarizing NFL prospects in college football. Some draft evaluators see a high-upside quarterback who draws Josh Allen comps and should be in consideration for a top-five pick, some see a total project that they’d stay far away from with a first-round pick.

Well, those debates will continue — and only increase — into April 27, 2023, the date of the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Levis told Blue Chips in a Twitter Spaces on Wednesday night that he will enter the 2023 NFL Draft.

Kentucky is 7-5 and will play a bowl game in the coming weeks. Levis told Blue Chips that he’s still undecided on if he’ll play in the bowl game, but that decision is “coming soon.”

Levis, who turns 24 next June, is listed at 6’3″, 232 pounds. He has the size, arm talent, and upside that organizations drool over at the quarterback position. It’s easy to see him blowing a few teams away at the NFL Combine, for example.

However, he’s also looked very raw and not close to what’s expected out of top NFL quarterback prospects, at times. For example, against Tennessee on Oct. 29, he threw for just 98 yards (3.8 AVG) with three interceptions and no touchdowns. But in a league where it’s generally all about the quarterback position, Levis’ tantalizing upside could outweigh his flaws for QB-needy NFL organizations.

On the season, Levis has thrown for 2,406 yards (8.5 AVG), 19 touchdowns, 10 interceptions, and a 65.4 completion percentage. He’s also had 17 career rushing touchdowns over his four seasons at Kentucky.
