Yearly, NFL draft analysts attempt to discover comparisons between the highest prospects within the subsequent class of school expertise, and their professional counterparts with related ability units and taking part in kinds.
For among the extra distinctive and dynamic gamers, that effort will be difficult for all the precise causes.
That’s the case for NFL Community’s Daniel Jeremiah and Liberty quarterback Malik Willis:
I couldn’t give you a clear-cut comparability for Willis. He makes some Josh Allen-type performs however he lacks Allen’s uncommon measurement (6-5, 237). As a runner, he jogs my memory a bit little bit of Taysom Hill due to his suddenness and energy. Nevertheless, by way of construct and ability set, I feel he’s most just like Jalen Hurts. They each have actually highly effective decrease our bodies and might use their working capacity to take over video games. Each are inconsistent passers, however the capacity is there and simply must be developed. Willis is extra dynamic and explosive, however I assumed Hurts was a extra reliable decision-maker on the sphere.
Willis is a flexible playmaker who could make large issues occur with each his arm and his legs. Whereas there are many promising quarterback prospects within the 2022 NFL draft class, none of them deliver the identical sort of ability set to the desk that Willis possesses.
A powerful 2021 marketing campaign might simply put Willis within the dialog to be the No. 1 general choose in subsequent yr’s draft.
