USC Trojans quarterback Caleb Williams is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and the consensus top prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft class. While he’s a year away from being drafted, NFL teams have already begun evaluating the All-American quarterback.
Williams, a former five-star recruit, transferred to USC last year to remain in Lincoln Riley’s offense. He quickly emerged as the best quarterback in college football, being named the AP College Football Player of the Year and winning both the Maxwell Award and Walter Camp Award.

While three quarterbacks were taken within the top four picks in the 2023 NFL Draft, including Bryce Young and C.J. Stroud with the top selections, the consensus around the NFL was that Williams is the superior talent. As he heads into his junior season, the early evaluations on him from some NFL teams put him on the same tier as one of the best quarterback prospects in decades.
