Both Daniels and Williams have their similarities. They both won the Heisman and they both transferred during their college careers.

Williams may not have produced at the same level as he did his Heisman Trophy season, throwing 12 fewer touchdowns and 904 fewer yards, but he led a larger role on offense and maintained his signature style of play beating opponents both on the ground and through the air.

Williams still played at a high level in 2023. He finished second in the Pac-12 Conference with a 170.1 passing efficiency rating, and his 68.6% completion was good for fourth.
