Report: Colts prefer Kentucky QB Will Levis over Anthony Richardson?

The Indianapolis Colts are definitely going to select a quarterback in the NFL Draft, but are they leaning towards a certain prospect?

If they are there are rumors swirling that they prefer Kentucky’s Will Levis right now over Florida’s freaky athletic quarterback Anthony Richardson.

According to ESPN’s Matt Miller, the Colts prefer Levis. That is because they view Richardson as more of a raw prospect and think Levis could be ready to start in the NFL right away.

“They need a Day 1 starter from this rookie class, too, and Levis is currently ahead of Anthony Richardson (Florida) for Indianapolis, according to sources close to the team, because he’s more likely to be able to play right away,” Miller wrote.

I am not sure I would want this information out there 13 days before the draft. If a team knows that the Colts are in fact in love with the Kentucky QB they may have to trade up one or two spots. The Houston Texans love Will Anderson from the talks around the league, and the Cardinals are looking to trade down. If the Cardinals do in fact trade down, could a team like the Lions or Raiders jump the Colts to select a quarterback like Levis?

Maybe a couple teams in need of a quarterback would be willing to jump to the front of the draft. I am not sure the Colts are in love with Levis, but at this point, we all know the Colts need a gunslinger.
