Maye played in what will very likely be the final home game of his career on Saturday night, helping the Tar Hels take down Duke in double overtime. It was a back-and-forth game at the end, despite UNC leading by two scores multiple times. Maye ended up finishing the game with 342 passing yards, a touchdown, an interception and a rushing touchdown.
He also led a go-head drive and a game-tying drive near the end before wining it in overtime.
As usually is the case, Maye was a hot topic on social media during the game as users debated whether or not he should be the top quarterback in the draft ahead of Caleb Williams. Here is what they were saying during the game.
Look I don’t know how else to describe him but Drake Maye is Luka pic.twitter.com/w2UO1KnnDv

Not gonna lie, if I’m the Patriots at this point, I’m benching Mac Jones and doing everything I can to get in position to draft Drake Maye.

I really believe Drake Maye will end up being QB1 by the draft. Seems like people are finding some small legit issues with Caleb, but they're also nitpicking too much

Screw it. I’m gonna say it.
Drake Maye should be the first overall pick and he’s better than Caleb Williams
(This is fully a homer perspective atm, I might rethink this come draft time when the Giants have the first overall pick)

Drake Maye is Josh Allen mixed with Herbert. Anyone who doesn’t draft him is going to regret it.

Drake Maye is so damn good. 2 elite QBs in this upcoming draft and the Broncos are gonna draft another pass rusher

It’s bonkers than Caleb Williams and Drake Maye are in the same draft class

Why do I feel like the Bears are going to draft Drake Maye over Caleb Williams?

Drake Maye should be the first overall pick in the draft. He’s already used to having to overcome shit coaching after dealing with Mack Brown.

Drake Maye just showed why he is in the conversation for QB1 in the Draft

Drake Maye should be the No. 1 overall pick this year in the NFL draft not Caleb Williams pic.twitter.com/pfkFYhxuQ9

simply can’t wait to watch drake maye revive whatever franchise drafts him next season with the knowledge that it simply cannot be the panthers… pain

Drake Maye, pretty good at the footballing.
Imagine if the Panthers traded up in the 2024 NFL Draft and had a shot at Maye or Caleb Williams. Oh, well…
