Will Levis‘ girlfriend Gia Duddy took to social media to congratulate her boyfriend for being selected in the 2023 NFL Draft. The former Kentucky quarterback was the 33rd overall pick, selected by the Tennessee Titans on Day 2.
Duddy went viral after attracting attention during the annual event, one which is hosted Kansas City’s Union Station this year.
“Lets ride @will_levis @titans,” Duddy wrote in an Instagram Story.
Levis was expected to be drafted on Day 1, but his collapse in the Draft sparked speculation on Thursday evening.
“Will Levis’ left toe that caused him to miss two games last year was ‘problematic’ for one team that considered him,” ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported.
“Levis says the ‘toe has healed’ and good to go. Another team believes Levis could manage it but thought surgery would need discussion after season. Levis disagrees.”
Meanwhile, ESPN draft expert Todd McShay told SportsCenter that there was concern by NFL teams about Levis’ personality.
“Just some reports, you don’t know who to trust this time of year but apparently he came off as not having an ideal personality,” ESPN draft expert Todd McShay said on “SportsCenter.”
“Some arrogance, some cockiness in his meetings. That’s a team-by-team basis, but ultimately the turnovers and style of play is an issue, too. He plays the quarterback position like a linebacker and we saw the toll it had on his body last year. A lot of teams I talked to were worried he was going to have a Carson Wentz case when it’s all said and done if he doesn’t learn how to protect his body better.”
