Auburn's quarterback situation is wide open. I thought we would find a quarterback in the spring; I was wrong. I was just hoping somebody would stand out more than the rest, but the coaches did not see it.

So, as of right now, we could have a True Freshman at quarterback in the fall. I just wish Kodi, Neil, or Chris would stand out and take the position. If somebody doesn't, then this could carry on into the season.  

Kodi Burns is the fan favorite, and he always has been. He was the five-star, do everything quarterback. He can run, we thought he could throw, and he had emotion. From what I observed during the spring and A Day, is that he ran the offense the best out of the Quarterbacks. Now, that doesn't mean he makes all of the throws, but the offense just seems to run smoother when he is in the game.

Neil Caudle was the  four-star quarterback who could run well and pass very well. He went to the elite 11 Quarterback camp and did well. He ended up being a little injury prone. Now he is back in full force, throwing the ball very well. He made all the passes and then some during A Day, but I just didn't see that separation. Maybe this is just because I am wearing my Kodi Burns sunglasses, wishing he would dominate. 

We also have Chris Todd, who is getting over an injury. He can run an offense, but with a hurt arm, he did not have the arm strength to make the throws. I honestly think if his arm is fully healed he could be a solid quarterback. 

So who does everybody think will be the starter? Who do you want to be the starter?  Or are you like me, and have complete faith in this staff to make the right decision?
