The Crimson Tide has had A.J. McCarron at quarterback for the last two seasons, and all he has done is lead the Tide to two straight national championships. He drastically improved his game in his junior year and seems to only be getting better. He certainly isn't the flashiest player in the world, but he gets the job done at an extremely high rate.
Gus Malzahn will install the spread offense that has been highly effective everywhere he has coached. What do you need for this offense to succeed? A dual-threat quarterback who can kill you with his legs and make smart and quick decisions in the passing game. Miller fits the bill here, but who is to say Kiehl Frazier or Jonathan Wallace won’t do the same?
With two running quarterbacks already on the roster, adding the Ohio State guy doesn't make much sense.
I'm not sure if there is any Florida Gators fan that wouldn't love to have Miller running the offense. But let's not write off Jeff Driskel just yet. Sure, he wasn't great last year and needs to improve as a passer. But this is the same thing that has been said about Miller.
If you watch the high school film on Driskel, you can see that he is incredibly athletic and has probably more arm strength than the Buckeyes' quarterback. Provide this kid with some talent at the skill positions, and he will develop in no time.
Aaron Murray has spent the last three seasons as the Bulldogs quarterback. He has passed for more than 3,000 yards in each year and thrown 95 career touchdown passes. Murray should be high on NFL draft boards heading into the new season.
The only concern most have with Murray is his ability to win the big game. Still, many college teams would love to have this guy.
Tyler Russell isn't the biggest quarterback name in the SEC and is hardly talked about. However, he has as much upside as anybody and showed flashes of what he was capable of last year.
Producing 20 plays of at least 25 yards in the air and throwing for 24 touchdowns, Russell has the ability to rise up the totem pole his senior year. I expect big things next year from this kid, and you wouldn't want to mess that up by adding Miller to the roster.
When James Franklin is healthy, he is one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the country. Remember, back in 2011, he threw for 2,865 yards, rushed for 981 yards and scored 36 touchdowns. He did all of this while completing 63.3 percent of his passes, which is much higher than Miller has ever completed.
Missouri is fine at the quarterback position as long as Franklin can remain healthy.
Johnny Manziel. Do I really need to say more?
