The Gators entered the 2012 season still unsure of who would be their quarterback in the following months. After splitting time under center with Jacoby Brissett in the opener against Bowling Green, Jeff Driskel emerged as the better option and took his position as Florida's gunslinger.
From a team standpoint, Driskel's sophomore campaign was a huge success; he took over a mediocre 7-6 football team and led it to a Sugar Bowl appearance. It was one of the most unexpected runs in college football last season.
In terms of numbers, however, there was nothing special about his season. He ended up with only 1,646 passing yards and 16 total touchdowns. In this regard, he was easily overshadowed by fellow SEC quarterbacks Johhny Manziel, AJ McCarron and Aaron Murray.
As the 2013 season approaches, I expect to see improvement from Driskel in a variety of statistical categories. The Gators will be relying on this improvement, as they will likely need to score more points next season in order to win games.
Here is a breakdown of how Jeff Driskel will fare offensively this upcoming season.
