Caleb Williams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Caleb Williams was selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft on Thursday night by the Chicago Bears, and he certainly did not hold back from revealing his high expectations for himself and his team throughout his professional career.

During his post-draft press conference, Caleb Williams made it very clear that his ultimate goal is to be the greatest quarterback ever to play the game, or to at least be in that conversation.

“To be the greatest or to be able to sit at the table,” Williams said. “You put dreams and goals in front of you that you aren’t able to reach within a year or two, and you try to go get ‘em. You have to consistently not get tired with consistency. Being able to be the same guy, being able to go in there and lead the guys and hold them accountable, and they hold me accountable to go get it. Having those team goals. The only way you can reach them.

“My last goal is immortality. The only way to reach that is winning championships. That’s big for me and something that is the reason I play the game. I’m excited.”

Those are some bold words. We’ll have to see how Williams’ career plays out from here.
