The NFL Scouting Combine is this week and quarterbacks take the field for positional drills on Saturday afternoon.
For many NFL fans, this is their favorite group of draft prospects to watch, with potential first-round picks showing off their arms and perhaps some darkhorse hurlers improving their draft stock. But, just like every year, some quarterbacks opt not to throw at the combine and wait til their pro day instead.
Former Kentucky and Penn State quarterback Will Levis, a projected first-rounder, will be throwing at the combine, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport. His odds to be the first overall pick are +650, according to DraftKings sportsbook.

Will Levis’s collegiate production
In many NFL circles, Levis is a top-five pick based on the physical tools he brings to the table alone. In college, he tossed for 5876 yards, 46 touchdowns and 25 interceptions. He also ran for 17 more touchdowns.
His production was limited at Penn State, serving as a backup, but he really took off once he got to Kentucky. For the Wildcats, he put up 43 passing scores, 11 rushing touchdowns and 5232 of his passing yards
