1) Will Levis, QB, Kentucky (6-3, 232)​

Previous rank: No. 1

Levis showed off his arm talent, quick release and toughness in Kentucky wins over Miami University (Ohio) and Florida. He threw darts in the short and intermediate areas and completed beautiful throws in each game from one hash to the opposite sideline.

The high arc and ease of motion on his 55-yard touchdown throw against the Gators was a scout's delight. When Levis misses on a throw, it's usually high; he took some velocity off shorter passes against the Gators after receivers couldn't come up with his high-velocity throws against the RedHawks the week prior. He threw one interception in each game.

A defender jumped his touch pass to the end zone in the second quarter of the opener, and his arm was hit on the INT against Florida, as his running back could not cross the pocket quickly enough to pick up an edge rusher (Levis moved him away from that side pre-snap). He is often used on boots and throws a number of quick passes, as Kentucky's offensive line is a work in progress in pass protection, but Levis made a handful of good decisions in each game to throw the ball out of bounds or to the turf instead of forcing the action. Overall, it was a good start to the season for the top senior passer.
