USC’s Caleb Williams
He had his worst game of the season with Poles in attendance.
He was picked off three times in the first half and threw for under 200 yards for just the third time in his USC career. Williams is still regarded as a generational talent, so one game is probably not going to knock him down on the Bears’ draft board.
Williams faced a lot of pressure from Notre Dame’s defense. He did manage to make a few plays that were still impressive.
Williams gets a chance to rebound against No. 14 Utah at the Los Angeles Coliseum this Saturday.
North Carolina’s Drake Maye
You might be thinking that you do not want another Tar Heels quarterback after Mitchell Trubiksy failed so spectacularly.
Maye has made more college starts and probably does not drive a Toyota Camry. Also, Maye has actually elevated North Carolina to No. 10 in the country.
The Tar Heels beat Miami behind Maye’s four touchdown passes. He completed 17 of 33 passes for 273 yards.
Maye would probably be the top QB prospect in any other year. He is big, athletic, and accurate. Some are comparing him to Carson Palmer.
North Carolina will play Virginia this weekend.
Michigan’s J.J. McCarthy
The Athletic’s Nick Baumgardner has McCarthy ranked as his third-best quarterback draft prospect.
McCarthy threw for 222 yards and threw touchdowns in No. 2 Michigan’s blowout victory over Indiana.
He has the ideal size and arm strength for a pro quarterback. McCarthy is being tutored by Jim Harbaugh.
Michigan hosts Michigan State this Saturday.
