Will Levis and Anthony Richardson highlight an SEC double-play for the Eagles in the middle tier.

When thinking about ‘quarterback schools’ or colleges that produce NFL-caliber signal-callers, Kentucky isn’t what anyone would consider being a factory. Still, we’ve seen some great NFL players come from the Wildcats program like Green Bay Packers wideout Randall Cobb, Jacksonville Jaguars edge rusher Josh Allen, and Minnesota Vikings linebacker Za’Darius Smith.

Unfortunately, when we think about Kentucky quarterbacks, it’s hard not to think about Tim Couch and Miami Dolphins wide receiver Lynn Bowden Jr., who played a little signal-caller during his time in Lexington.

Anyway, Will Levis has a chance to change the perception. He transferred from Penn State in 2021 and passed for 2,826 yards and 24 touchdowns, showing exceptional arm talent, and that could pique the Eagles’ interest.

840. . . . Anthony Richardson, Florida. 3. player

Anthony Richardson has drawn comparisons to Cam Newton in his prime, which could be what the Eagles are looking for if the Jalen Hurts experiment doesn’t work out.

Richardson stands at six-foot-four and tips the scales at 236 pounds. He doesn’t just have size and strength. He’s also shown flashes of speed and insane arm talent, the latter trait being something that has been questioned with Hurts.

Richardson could wind up having the highest upside of these ‘middle of the pack’ quarterbacks, and he could draw some interest from Philly if they decide they need a signal-caller.
