Coming Down To Malik Willis And Kenny Pickett
It is clear that the top two quarterbacks in the NFL Draft right now are Malik Willis and Pitt’s Kenny Pickett. Willis is favored right now being that some might say he fits in to the current day NFL more than Pickett does.
Willis offers tremendous rushing upside after going for 1,822 rushing yards and 27 rushing touchdowns in his last two years for the Flames.
Not to mention he went for 2,857 yards and 27 touchdowns through the air. Having that dual threat option in today’s league where it has become somewhat of a necessity is extremely important to a teams success which makes Willis a prime candidate to win this bet.
Pickett, while he does not offer as much dual-threat ability, has still made a strong case to be the first QB taken off the board and cash his NFL odds.

He finished his senior year with the sixth-most passing yards (4,319), the fourth-most passing touchdowns (42), and the ninth-highest QBR (81.2).
One major aspect that Pickett does have over Willis is the level of competition that they both faces in college. Pickett played in an ACC conference that which is considered one of the toughest Power Five conferences in the country.
Willis and Liberty, on the other hand, were independent and did not go up against much competition. The level of competition is certainly something that is brought up on the scouting report for quarterbacks in the draft in which Pickett has the advantage.
Overall, either of these two would be great bets to make as there are no doubts that they will fall in the top-2 QBs taken first.
