BY THE NUMBERS: Bryce Young vs. Will Levis

Though the 2022 college football season is over, there are still a few opportunities for potential top draft prospects to have their projections rise or fall. The quarterback position has caught the attention of many, as the battle for QB1 has apparently not yet been settled.

The Chicago Bears hold the No. 1 overall pick but don’t necessarily need a quarterback.  This leads many to believe the pick will be traded to a team that is looking to draft a quarterback.

Whether or not the pick is traded, the question remains: who will be the first quarterback selected?

Analysts believe it is between Alabama’s Heisman-winning quarterback Bryce Young and Kentucky’s Will Levis.

Breaking down the career stats between the two may assist in deciding which quarterback is deserving of going No. 1 overall.
