QB expert explains why USC’s Caleb Williams is more ready for NFL than Patrick Mahomes was out of college

The first time former NFL quarterback Jordan Palmer saw Caleb Williams was when the five-star recruit was a junior in high school. 

The Elite 11, a premier quarterback showcase for the top high school recruits in the country, had Williams going against his peers, and Palmer saw a clear gap in level of play. 

“I said it then, and I’ve never said it about anyone else: That’s the best kid I’ve ever seen,” Palmer told Fox News Digital. “I know when I say those things out loud it can carry some weight, so I don’t throw that around a lot. I’m not the over-hyper.”

Years later, Williams has starred at Oklahoma and USC, winning the Heisman with the Trojans as a true sophomore with 4,537 yards and 42 touchdowns passing in 14 games. 

But as Williams continues to carve up defenses and cement his place as college football’s No. 1 prospect, he appears to be on the right path.
