1. Superstar potential
Rocket arm, rushing ability, what is not to love? Well, for Willis, he is not a finished product. That is what many Tua fans will cling to, that as a passer, Willis will need to keep progressing.
There is no debate from me. Willis is a project in the NFL, but he reminds me of Josh Allen in that case. Yes, he is not as big as Allen; as I mentioned before, I wish he were. But he reminds me of Allen in the way he makes some really bad throws that make others ask if he’s good but make actual football minds think about how good he could be if he’s coached up more and can progress.
Willis is a boom or bust prospect, but that’s what makes him so intriguing in my eyes. He could 100% flop and never progress as a passer in the NFL. That’s just a realistic outlook on him, as he is not a sure thing. (Though Tua Tagovailoa was a sure thing, and look how that has played out…)
HOWEVER, there is no denying that if Willis can reach his potential as a passer, this dude has superstar, elite quarterback ability. If Miami can get the most out of Willis and reach the ceiling many have for him, they may be getting one of the best, most electric quarterbacks in the NFL.
It is 100% a risk, but sometimes you need to take major risks to get major rewards, and that is why the Miami Dolphins need to draft Malik Willis No Matter What.
