Now that we’ve had two weeks to get a look at the quarterbacks in the SEC, here’s a list of them, ranked.
We’re two weeks into the college football season and we’re starting to see some cream rising to the top in terms of quarterback play, especially in the Southeastern Conference. The SEC boasts some of college football’s best teams and have a few vying for a national championship this season.
Alabama, Georgia, Auburn, Mississippi State, Florida, LSU and South Carolina have all been ranked at some point this season, with Texas A&M and Arkansas right on the fringe. Don’t be shocked if any of these teams are in the playoff hunt come November.
Some of the quarterbacks in the conference are also putting up numbers that have (or should have) themselves in the running for the Heisman Trophy. Quarterbacks are the most important position on an offense, so let’s take a look at the SEC and rank each starting quarterback.
14. Joe Burrow – LSU
Joe Burrow not been impressive at all to start the season, although LSU has won both of their first two games. It was definitely not because of the passing offense. Rather, LSU is using their defense and rushing attack to beat people. Shocking, I know.
Burrow has completed only 48 percent of his passes, worst of anyone on the list, and thrown only two touchdowns. To his credit, he has not thrown an interception, but he only has 291 passing yards through two games.
He gave Tiger fans hope this season when he transferred from Ohio State. He was a 4-star dual threat quarterback and the No. 8 ranked player at that position in the 2014 class.
The Tigers will be leaning on Burrow to manage their games and not lose them.
