Caleb Williams has become a focal point of attention leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft. With many projecting him as the undisputed number-one pick, he also belongs to the Chicago Bears. 

However, the player's rise to prominence wasn’t without its hurdles, especially within the quarterback depth chart at Oklahoma. Before he eventually surpassed Spencer, Rattler had another highly touted prospect. He was once considered a potential first-overall pick and Heisman Trophy candidate. But William found himself playing the role of a backup. 

Unpacking Caleb Williams' Oklahoma Anger

Recently, a video by MLFootball was shared on an account called The Pivot on X (formerly known as Twitter). It is a podcast hosted by Ryan Clark, who is a former NFL defensive back. William shared his emotions about how he was not satisfied with the job he got. Even though Williams didn’t see himself in that role for long, he was very vocal about what should be given to him. 


He said, “Cause I was best in the country -- I told people before I went there that I was going to start, and play, and beat (Spencer Rattler) out.” With that, he added, “I thought I'd beat him out in [the] Spring and he's projected No. 1 and all of that.”

Turning Setbacks into Success

The player expressed his frustration at not being allowed to compete for the starting position earlier. He also lamented that he wasn’t allowed to play with the first team or the older players. Even after facing several setbacks, he remained focused and took advantage of the opportunity he was given.
