Shannon Sharpe and Chad Johnson discuss Caleb Williams’ level of readiness for the NFL

How prepared is Caleb Williams for the NFL? We will find out this fall, probably in Chicago with the Bears.

In a previous article, we caught and collected a comment from NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein on Caleb Williams:

Williams’ play is highlighted by rare escapability paired with the talent to exploit defenses once the play breaks down. He’s not tall, but he is well-built, with an arm to challenge defenses across the field. He can be a high-impact playmaker on the go or an effective pocket passer when he allows himself to trust his eyes on second and third reads. He can improve his accuracy and placement on intermediate and deep throws, but he’s unlikely to be known for pinpoint accuracy. It is admirable that he looks to keep his eyes up and make throws outside the pocket, but he’ll make things easier on himself early in his pro career by becoming a more decisive scrambler to move the sticks and carry on to the next set of downs.

The deep-dive profiles of Caleb Williams are generall positive, but they do note some flaws on the edges in his game. Ironing out those rough edges will be a central task for Caleb in the NFL.
