Spring practice is in the past for most programs now, meaning no more official practice time until camp opens in August.
Now seems as good a time as any to evaluate where SEC teams stand at the most important position in the sport—quarterback.
To do so, we will examine 2013 performance and combine that with reports from around spring camps. This list will examine the entirety of the position for each program but with heavy emphasis on the starter.
This is an especially fluid season for quarterbacks in the league.
Nearly half of the league is looking for a new starter, and only two returning quarterbacks—Auburn’s Nick Marshall and Ole Miss’ Bo Wallace—started 10 games a year ago. (Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott did not start the opener against Oklahoma State, nor did he start the final three regular-season games.)
Senior starters are tough to come by as well. The only apparent locks are Marshall, Wallace, Florida’s Jeff Driskel and Georgia’s Hutson Mason.
Here’s an early sneak peak at the best quarterback situations across the SEC.
