Will Levis’ girlfriend Gia Duddy caused something of a stir this week with her outfit to the 2023 NFL Draft.
Heading into the proceedings, Levis was regarded by most as a surefire first-round pick. Some had him going as high as No. 2 to the Houston Texans, but nobody believed that he would fall below the Indianapolis Colts’ No. 4 overall pick.
Certainly, everyone envisioned Levis coming off the board before Florida’s Anthony Richardson, who most regarded as far more of a “project” than he was.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned for Levis. He did not get picked in the first round. Instead, he and Duddy just sat there. And sat there. And sat there.
Whereas Levis obviously had a rough night, fans loved Duddy’s choice of outfit.
Her blowing up over her draft outfit was just par for the course.
Interestingly enough, Duddy wasn’t the only person close to Levis to blow up on Thursday night. His sister’s racy social media photos also set the internet ablaze.
Big picture, it will be interesting to see where Levis goes from here. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the Kentucky star fell in the draft over concerns about his health.

“Levis’ left toe that caused him to miss two games last year was ‘problematic’ for one team that considered him,” Mortensen wrote.
“Levis says the ‘toe has healed’ and good to go. Another team believes Levis could manage it but thought surgery would need discussion after season. Levis disagrees.”
Will all the teams who deemed Levis a bad investment in the first-round ultimately feel differently about him in Round 2? One way or another, an answer will emerge soon enough.
