Top Eight Quarterbacks in the 2022 NFL Draft

  • Malik Willis, Liberty- Willis is the most physically gifted quarterback in this class. His tape is a frustrating mess of greatness. There are plays he just completely whiffs on his read then there are times where he keeps a play alive for what seems to be minutes and eventually gets the ball off. Willis has elite-level pocket awareness and his ability to scramble is the best in college football. Combined with this he has great arm strength and accuracy. Willis can drop the ball into a bucket on the run while pressured, it’s really fun to watch. All this said, makes him seem like the best quarterback prospect in years. The easiest way to describe him is he’s a physical monster who lacks the mental aspects of football. A good amount of his tape makes it seem like someone playing Madden, just constantly running around. His Senior Bowl play helped knock the concerns of “competition level” off but he still lacks the mental aspects. At times he seems to be a scramble-first quarterback. With this, he tends to try and keep plays alive longer than he should instead of just throwing the ball away. When scrambling, he displays toughness by taking hits but needs to learn to go out of bounds or slide to avoid these unnecessary shots unless needed. In his pass game, he will look for the big play instead of trying to take the safe check down. There is so much to love with Willis and he may be a late 1st round pick just because of his physical upside but he needs to sit for at least one year and develop the mental aspect. If he can do this, there’s no doubt Willis will be one of the most electric, exciting, and dangerous quarterbacks in the NFL.
