The NFL Draft is always a topic of conversation, and already the debate is starting for next year’s event. USC’s Caleb Williams and North Carolina’s Drake Maye are two quarterbacks who have scouts drooling over the 2024 NFL Draft.
Williams has been dominant since his true freshman season at Oklahoma, and this past season, he won the Heisman Trophy. He is electric outside of structure and is a load to bring down at 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds. Williams routinely broke out of sack attempts and forced a missed tackle on 38% of his rushing attempts this past season.
Maye is lethal inside of the pocket as his 92.5 grade led all quarterbacks in the country this past season. He has prototypical size at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds and pairs it with a rocket right arm. Maye’s 899 rushing yards were the third-most among all quarterbacks in the country, and his legs certainly must be accounted for.
Picking between the two comes down to personal preference. If you want a signal-caller who can create offense on his own, that would be Williams. However, if you want one who will torch defenses from inside the pocket, that would be Maye. As of right now, the slight edge goes to Williams due to his ability outside of structure and performing at an elite level for two years now.
Regardless of preference, NFL teams will be tripping over themselves to obtain a top-two selection in the 2024 draft. Both Williams and Maye have showcased incredible talent, and the potential for their NFL careers is sky-high.
