This past season, the SEC was dogged by major media outlets for not having the QB phenom that other conferences possessed in players like Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Case Keenum.
In recent years, the SEC has been highlighted by running backs like Mark Ingram, Marcus Lattimore and Trent Richardson.
Even the QBs that have been made famous by the SEC (e.g. Tim Tebow, Cam Newton) possessed more of a scrambling style instead of a traditional rocket-arm.
When people think of the SEC, they think of big-boy, smash-mouth, grown-man tackle football—not laser-guided precision by the guy receiving the snap.
Next year, that will change.
Multiple QBs will be coming into their own next season with talents only rivaled by the big guns of the Big 12.
With experience, talent and undeniable skill surrounding them, one of these next QBs could even be in the Heisman discussion by midseason.
