There was a lot of talk leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft about how Liberty's Malik Willis was the most promising quarterback prospect in the class. However, 32 players heard their names being called on Night 1 of the draft and the 22-year-old was not one of them.

Willis possesses raw talent with a high upside, so it's unlikely that he'll remain on the board for too long. Still, with so many teams passing on him the first time around, fans are having a tough time gaging where he'll end up.

The good news is that FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL Draft odds help illustrate where Willis could begin his professional career.

FanDuel Sportsbook is favoring Willis to end up on the Seattle Seahawks at +250 odds. The Seahawks hold both the No. 40 and No. 41 picks in the second round, giving them multiple opportunities to land their QB of the future.

The Minnesota Vikings (+340), Tennessee Titans (+340) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+600) are the other top landings spots, according to the odds.

Considering how high Willis was projected to go, drafting him in Round 2 would be a steal for the Seahawks. The young gunslinger broke out after transferring to Liberty in 2020, recording 377 completions for 5,107 passing yards and 47 touchdowns to 18 interceptions over the last two seasons.

Something that made Russell Wilson a fan favorite earlier in his Seahawks career was his mobility, which is a quality that Willis brings to the table as well.

Willis rushed the ball 338 times since 2020 for 1,822 yards and another 27 TDs. He likely won't have the same level of success in the NFL, but the Seahawks could have something special on their hands if head coach Pete Carroll helps him with his development just as he did for Wilson many years ago.

Fans likely won't have to wait too long to find out where Willis ends up going. Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft begins Friday, April 29 at 7 p.m. ET.
