The SEC is the most talented conference in college football, and it has been that way for years. More years than other conferences care to admit.
With all this talent comes some of the best quarterbacks in the country. In this past NFL Draft, two SEC QBs were taken in the top four picks. Bryce Young at 1, and Anthony Richardson at 4.
Several other SEC passers were also selected in the draft, like Kentucky’s Will Levis and Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker.
Despite all of these guys moving on, the SEC still has some of the best quarterbacks in the country. So naturally, we sat down and ranked all 14 of the projected starting QBs.
Here we go.
SEC football: Looking for a fresh start
Jake Garcia has been at Miami for two seasons and is now looking for new beginnings in the SEC with the Missouri Tigers.
A 4-star recruit out of high school, Garcia never really got off the ground with the Hurricanes. He appeared in eight games for Mario Cristobal, throwing for 803 yards, five touchdowns, and four interceptions.
With a completion percentage of 59.6% and a poor TD-to-INT ratio, it was a good move for Garcia to move out of Coral Gables and try for a new start with Mizzou.
Eliah Drinkwitz has the Tigers trending up and is starting to get some serious playmakers on their squad.
Despite all these positives, Garcia still has a lot to prove before he can earn national respect. For now, he’s at the bottom of a talented crop of QBs.
