More Than Another CFB Game

Here’s what ESPN draft analyst Matt Miller thinks of potential No. 1 picks and QBs Malik Willis and Matt Corral.

More Than Another CFB Game

Mike Vick is a fan of Malik Willis, the Liberty quarterback and my top-ranked passer for the 2022 draft class. But Vick, like NFL evaluators, also acknowledged the talent of Ole Miss QB  Matt Corral.

 

Lucky for us, we get to see Willis and Corral on the same field this Saturday as Liberty takes on Ole Miss. Evaluators from 22 NFL teams will be in attendance to watch the favorites among QBs for the No. 1 overall selection. It promises to be a duel of two athletic, dual-threat, playmaking QBs no matter the difference in talent between the two rosters.

 

The odds right now favor Corral (+300, bet $100 → $300) as the favorite among QBs to be selected first overall and there’s a good reason for that. The tale of the tape on Corral is impressive:

  • 6’1, 205 lbs
  • 15:2 TD-to-INT ratio 2021
  • 10 rushing TDs; including 195 yard rushing game (vs. TEN)
  • Impressive foot quickness, decision-making, accuracy and overall athleticism

 

Not to be outdone, Willis is an athlete in the Kyler Murray-mold. He currently ranks as my QB1 and a top 15 overall player with +500 (bet $100 → win $500) odds to be the No. 1 overall pick. What’s his scouting report look like?

  • 6’1”, 215 lbs
  • 21:6 TD-to-INT ratio
  • 9 rushing TDs; back-to-back seasons over 600 rushing yards
  • Big-armed, fast, explosive and ELUSIVE
Tip of the day

Head-to-head matchups rarely carry much weight with NFL evaluators in terms of the box score or final points, but it does give scouts a chance to see both quarterbacks in person and on the same field — something we rarely get with the best passers in a class! Saturday could very well play a huge role in determining who the top quarterback and top overall pick will be in the 2022 Draft.
