Seahawks QB tracker: 1 and 2 in Week 2
Number 2: Will Levis, Kentucky
Levis has all the physical tools and leadership you could want to be great. The one thing he is missing is a decent offensive line right now. Even as his new-look line learns to mesh at Levis’s expense, he found a way to lead his WIldcats to a huge road victory over the 12th-ranked Florida Gators.
Levis had to labor, but his 60-yard touchdown bomb showed that he’s the closest player in college to what we’re seeing from Buffalo’s Josh Allen right now.
Levis is the total physical package, much like AR-15, just a few years ahead in the development process.

Number 1: C.J. Stroud, Ohio State
My top overall QB prospect heading into this season, Stroud has shown nothing to take him off the top spot through two weeks. Stroud led a rusty Buckeyes offense to life late against a Notre Dame defense in Week 1 and continued that rolled in a 45-12 win over Arkansas State.
Stroud is the total package. A master of the Ryan Day offense that is very similar to what you’re seeing on Sundays, Stroud is great in all areas involving the quarterback position. His style of play very closely resembles a former Ohio State QB who’s also playing football in Ohio.
While Stroud may not have the physically dominant traits that you’ll see in flashes by Levis and Richardson, Stroud is the safest choice if you’re looking for a QB in this upcoming draft, while also having a tremendous ceiling.
