Texas A&M Football opposing quarterback rankings: Capable passers
8. Will Rogers, Mississippi State: Mississippi State’s Will Rogers isn’t really a bad quarterback, he’s just not threatening at all. He’s a pure pocket passer, so Texas A&M won’t have to worry about containing him. Through their air, he’s alright, though his 5.7 yards per attempt won’t impress anybody in the SEC. Unless Mike Leach’s air-raid offense suddenly kicks in a year late, this should be a pretty easy matchup for A&M.
7. KJ Jefferson, Arkansas: Again, I don’t have very many negative things to say about KJ Jefferson. In high school, he was a 4-star recruit and one of the best prospects in the country, though he hasn’t had a chance to show that off in college quite yet. He has explosive-play ability, so if there’s a guy who could get the Aggies on their heels, it’s Jefferson. Still, he plays for Arkansas and he doesn’t have much experience.
6. Connor Bazelak, Missouri: I didn’t realize until now that half of the SEC is made up of quarterbacks that make you say “meh.” Bazelak has solid potential, which he showed against LSU in his team’s big upset last year. After that, he was just average, posting more than a handful of zero touchdown-zero interception stat lines. He struggles to pass the ball deep down the field, so Mizzou’s offense may be extremely one-dimensional.
5. Bo Nix, Auburn: Bo Nix is the last quarterback on this list who doesn’t pose much of a threat. A couple of years ago, he looked like he could become another great Auburn quarterback. Now, he’s a guy with a couple of average seasons under his belt. With some stability around the program, we may see him have a bounce-back season. Still, Nix hasn’t done much to prove that he’s a real threat.
