The New York Giants are riding with Daniel Jones at quarterback this season, a move that is being met with mixed reviews. Some analysts are predicting Jones will flourish under the new coaching staff and behind a rebuilt offensive line.

Other experts are panning the decision, citing Jones as just an average talent who won’t reach the next level regardless of who is around him.

That is why mock drafters are predicting the Giants will be in the market for a quarterback and one name that has continually come up is Kentucky’s Will Levis.

The latest to connect the two sides is Pro Football Focus, which listed a 2023 prospect to watch for each team.

“From a pure tools perspective, Levis is probably the closest thing in the upcoming draft class to Josh Allen. And we all saw what Giants head coach Brian Daboll did with that in Buffalo. In his first season as a starter after transferring from Penn State, Levis earned a 90.6 overall grade.”

Levis, who is 6-foot-3 and 232 pounds, transferred to Kentucky from Penn State last year and showed solid all-around ability. He should grow as a senior with one more year of experience in the SEC.

Selecting Levis would reunite him with wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson, who the Giants landed in the second round in this year’s draft.

Last week, at the Manning Passing Academy, Levis continued to turn heads. He spoke about getting all he

“I want to be a sponge and soak up as much information as I can from these guys,” he told reporters in June. “Every one of these quarterbacks has something we can learn from each other. And obviously Peyton and Eli, with their experience, it’s so invaluable. To ask them questions — I’m making sure I am spending as much time as I can without bugging them too much. I just can’t wait to take advantage of this.”

His relationship with the Mannings surely won’t hurt his chances with the Giants.
