Quarterback No. 2

Will Levis (Tennessee Titans)

Will Levis was a high-profile quarterback in last year's NFL Draft. Early in the process. he was viewed by some as a top-five pick with a chance to crack the top three selections.

He slowly began to fall down the board as accuracy issues and some quirky character traits made teams go back and look at his tape, and he fell into the second round.

Like Bryce Young of the Carolina Panthers, Levis finds himself with a whole new coaching staff in his second year. This isn't the regime that selected him and has no ties and nothing invested in his future.

This doesn't mean they don't want him or believe they can work and develop him, but at the same token, they may not see him as their quarterback of the future and could look to move him for some picks.

The Vikings weren't fans of Will Levis in the draft last year, at least not to the point that they thought he was deserving of the 23rd overall pick. Despite needing a young quarterback, they passed on Levis to take Jordan Addison.

Just because they thought the 23rd pick was too high for Levis though, doesn't mean they think a fourth or fifth-round pick in a trade would be too much to take a chance on this kid.

Levis does possess some solid traits. He has a cannon for an arm and can also take off and pick up yardage on the ground. He sometimes takes risks with the football, throwing it into some windows that just aren't open.

His rookie stats reflect that, as he had some impressive games mixed in with some stinkers. He ended up throwing for 1,808 yards with eight touchdowns to four interceptions.

Levis could probably be had for a couple of mid-round picks. If the Vikings can't land a quarterback in the draft, it may be worth giving the Titans a call to check Levis's availability.
