Will Levis’ slide ends early on Day 2, with the Tennessee Titans trading up to Pick 33 to grab the signal-caller.
Levis has supreme arm talent and an ultra-quick release, but the big knock on him is how little he put that into action. He lacked high-quality throws at Kentucky last season, which played a part in his middling 65.8 passing grade on the year. The good news is that Levis lands in an offense that will help open up some downfield opportunities.

Strengths, weaknesses and NFL role
Where he wins: Field-Expanding Arm
Levis is able to attack tight windows at every level of the football field fearlessly. He pairs that with nimble feet to get out of sticky situations in the pocket. That's the combo most elite QBs have in the NFL.
What's his role? Downfield passer
Levis' biggest strength is his ability to work the middle of the field with drive throws to the deep and intermediate ranges of the field. It's a skill that few possess, which is why he's so in demand as a prospect. Any scheme that consistently works there is one that would fit Levis' strengths.
What he can improve: Consistent footwork
While his decision-making has been criticized due to 23 interceptions over the last two years, his turnover-worthy play rates aren't bad at all. No, it's the accuracy that's my biggest concern, and it starts from the bottom up. Levis can't afford to be as sloppy with his feet as he was this past season (although turf toe may have played a factor).
