Will Levis has broken his silence after falling out of the first round of the NFL Draft this week.
The quarterback was the second pick of the second round on Friday night, having sat through an embarrassing Thursday affair as he showed up expecting to be a premium selection.
Levis, who had previously claimed he would not attend the draft if he felt like he was going to be picked in the second round, ended up skipping night two instead of the initial selection period, adding to his embarrassment.
ESPN made a task of making things worse for the 23-year-old as they kept showing him on TV throughout the event.

The player’s nightmare is now over as he was made the 33rd overall pick by the Tennessee Titans on the second night of the highly-anticipated event. Levis has since admitted his disappointment but vowed to keep working hard.
“Regardless of where I got picked, I feel like it’s not going to change my work ethic,” Levis said (H/T NFL.com). “Regardless of if I went first overall or 33rd. You can’t kind of let the circumstances dictate your preparation, and the level of intensity you bring to your everyday practice. Definitely a little bit of a chip, but just know that I was going to work hard regardless of where I got picked. … I ended up where I was meant to be, and I am just looking forward to competing and getting started.”
It is believed that a toe issue was the reason for Will’s slip from the first round, with teams concerned about the injury that caused him to miss two games for Kentucky last season, though the player insisted it was no longer a problem.
The quarterback had an inconsistent career for the Wildcats after transferring from Penn State. While he boasts phenomenal arm strength and is quite the physical specimen, Levis has some flaws n his game that he will need to work on if he is to become a success in the NFL.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
