Former Kentucky quarterback Will Levis is gearing up for the NFL draft, and that includes getting his body into peak physical condition. The potential first-round pick has been putting in work as he looks to impress NFL teams, and he posted a progress picture on social media on Wednesday, in which he looked absolutely shredded.
Levis posted a comparison of himself from back in December after a season with the Wildcats during which he was plagued by various injuries. He indicated that the injuries left him in the "worst shape" of his career, but suggested he's turned things around and is now feeling better than he ever has.

Levis indicated that he weighed around 226 pounds back in December, but has bulked up to 230, with the draft looming.
During his final season in Lexington, Levis dealt with injuries to his foot, finger, and shoulder throughout the year. Despite playing banged up, the senior completed 65.4 percent of his pass attempts for 2,406 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
Levis didn't run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, though he got his measurements taken, standing in at 6'4" and 229 pounds, while also testing his broad jump (10'4") and vertical leap (34 inches).
He’s expected to be among the first quarterbacks selected in the 2023 NFL draft, and any teams with doubts over his conditioning need only refer to his social media accounts for proof that he’s fully fit.
