Potential SEC Starting Quarterbacks Who Need Improvement

  • Pin It

Almost nearly half of the SEC is starting over not only with new coaches, but most likely starting over with new quarterbacks. It turns out almost to be like an “out with the old and in with the new” type of deal, even with the previous roster intact. Mark Stoops at Kentucky is already starting over with a new quarterback and is most likely the biggest question mark more than Alabama among long-term active coaches. Here are the potential starters who need improvement.

  • Cole Kelley, Arkansas: Without any debate unless someone steps up, Cole Kelley is unaminously the starter and the successor for Austin Allen. While Allen was battling injuries during his senior campaign, Kelley played in nine games throwing for 1,038 yards and eight touchdowns, just five points under Allen and did so as a freshman. The only other quarterback that might have a say in the competition is junior Ty Storey. Kelley is the only active QB left over from last season.
  • Feleipe Franks, Florida: Franks was sadly involved in all the turmoil that went down during the short run of Jim McElwain. Even with two SEC East Championships, he could not contain a good quarterback since losing Will Grier. Franks too is the only active QB left on Florida’s roster now under the direction of Dan Mullen, as he threw for 1,438 yards and nine touchdowns while struggling at the same time. The only other redshirt sophomore on the team is Kyle Trask.
  • Jordan Ta’amu, Ole Miss: Whether they win their appeal or not, this is now Ta’amu’s team and has already proven that while Shea Patterson (now at Michigan) was out. In only seven games as a junior, he threw for 1,682 yards and 11 touchdowns, which was hands down proof enough. A dual-threat experience is what the Rebels most likely need to boost this rebuilding offense under now head coach Matt Luke. Bowl eligible or not, they will win more than six games this season.
