Liberty quarterback Malik Willis is trending on social media ahead of tonight's first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

In the months leading up to Draft Day, Willis has gained steam as one of the top quarterback options in this year's selection pool. The overwhelming consensus is that the exciting dual-threat QB will be picked up somewhere in the first round.

Some fans are discussing the possibility of Willis coming off the board as early as No. 6 to the Carolina Panthers. "By this time tomorrow I really hope Malik Willis is the name written on that #6 card for Carolina," one wrote.

Steelers fans are hoping Willis falls as late as their No. 20 overall pick.

"Today Malik Willis becomes a Steeler," one wrote.

Through two seasons as the starting quarterback for Liberty, Willis logged 5,107 yards and 47 touchdowns through the air, and 1,835 yards and 27 touchdowns on the ground. During this year's Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine, he quickly boosted his draft stock with some solid performances and measurements.
