Will Levis is Carson Wentz

Throwing the Football

From Will Levis Scouting Report

"Timing is a major issue on NFL throws with Levis, and his decision-making, in tandem, can improve as well. He sometimes locks onto receivers pre-snap and will prematurely commit to routes even when they’re covered up. He occasionally stares down his primary receiver, inviting defenders to close in early with his eyes, and he’ll look to force ill-advised throws with his arm."

From Carson Wentz Scouting Report

"Wentz isn’t a consistent thrower on the move because he doesn’t always turn his shoulders to the target, and may lose accuracy and velocity. Needs to refine his footwork on under-center dropbacks. Tends to lock onto his eventual targets for too long, which will lead to converging coverages at the NFL level. Needs to be more sudden and accurate on deep throws at times, and his read quickness is an issue."

Running the Football

They both run like they are Josh Allen, but they don't have the footwork and speed and strength that Josh Allen possesses. It is a wreckless running style that for most part is not sustainable for an NFL QB, especially one that does not have the Athleticism to pull it off. This lead to the eventual end of Carson's career, sustaining dual sprained ankles at Indy, and if Levis is encouraged to run where-ever he goes we can expect a similar result.
