Malik Willis put on an absolute show during his Pro Day on Tuesday. The former Liberty quarterback, who transferred after two years at Auburn, has been rising up NFL Draft boards and could very easily be the first quarterback taken in the NFL Draft come April.

Willis stands 6-foot-1, 215 pounds and has a cannon for an arm. He can also make defenders pay a steep price for challenging him with his feet.

Willis chose not to run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine because he wants to be very clear that he is a quarterback. He also chose not to do so again at his Pro Day.

That was totally fine with the scouts in attendance because Malik Willis’ 70-play throwing script at his Pro Day was flawless.

Willis began the day with some shorter routes to show off his accuracy. In the process, the NFL Network broadcast took note of his massive lower body. He does not skip leg day.

From there, Willis opened things up a little bit and showed off his deep ball ability. He could drop a dime into a bucket from 40 yards away with ease.

And, when it comes to football, attitude is a big thing. NFL organizations look for talent, but they also look for guys who just love the game. Willis loves the game.

When it came to his best throw of the day, Willis put a 70-yard ball on an absolute rope. To celebrate, he walked it off by getting the crowd fired up.

The final throw of the day was not only his best, but it was incredibly hype.

Of the teams that might be in the market for a quarterback, specifically Willis, there are seven franchises that might choose to draft the Liberty signal-caller. Some are more actively searching for a quarterback than others.

  • Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Carolina Panthers
  • Washington Commanders
  • Denver Broncos
  • Minnesota Vikings
  • New Orleans Saints
  • Detroit Lions

Wherever Willis ends up, his rising stock sets him up to be a solidified starter in the NFL if not this year, than in the near future.
