UGA Football: Six SEC Quarterbacks Better Than Eason?

Field St Forum has some happy fans now that fall practice has started!!!

What comes with fall practice is rankings. In anticipation of the upcoming season, EVERYONE is ranking EVERYTHING!!! And none of us care, because it’s better than no football at all.

Today we’ll take a look at how Athlon ranks the projected starting SEC quarterbacks:

While true sophomore Jacob Eason probably has the strongest arm of the group, it’s not crazy to think that he still has a lot to prove on the field. If we take off our red and black glasses, it’s not hard to project a couple of guys ahead of him.

I’m just not so sure there are six in the SEC ahead of him, like Athlon has:


7. Jacob Eason, Georgia

Eason’s development is crucial to Georgia’s hopes of winning the SEC East in 2017. The five-star prospect started 12 games for the Bulldogs as a true freshman last fall and finished the year by throwing for 2,430 yards and 16 scores. Eason needs to improve his accuracy (55.1 percent) and do a better job of taking care of the ball (eight picks last year), but the talent is there to take a step forward in 2017.


Check out the rest of the rankings:

14. Kellen Mond – Texas A&M

12. Quinten Dormay – Tennessee

11. Danny Etling – LSU
