Will Levis is not Josh Allen

The Buffalo Bills got themselves a diamond in the rough when they gambled on Josh Allen coming out of Wyoming. Something that’s changed the landscape of what other NFL teams are now doing in the hope of similar good fortune.

Will Levis has drawn comparisons to Allen thanks to his size, athleticism, and arm strength. This could see the signal-caller drafted much higher than his talent dictates, although much will also depend on how he grades out during the all-important assessment process and at events such as the NFL Scouting Combine.

While the Kentucky star is sure to test well, the tape comes first and in this perspective, Levis leaves a lot to be desired. His decision-making is suspect, there is no touch on his intermediate throws and pre-snap recognition also needs considerable work before becoming an NFL starter.

Simply put, Levis is not Allen.

Not even close when one compares the two coming out of college.

He might prove growing doubters wrong over time. Levis has a significant amount of work ahead, so it might be best for him to land on a contender to sit for a year or two while developing his craft.

Unfortunately, the Carolina Panthers don’t have this luxury. So becoming enamored with Levis might become would be very short-sighted indeed based on his 2022 production.
