Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

Weekdays 2pm-6pm

We are inside 7 weeks to the start of the SEC season. The conference is loaded at quarterback this season from top to bottom. In fact, of the 14 programs half of them return their starter from last year not counting Anthony Richardson. Plus guys with experience like Zach Calzada and Max Johnson transferred within the conference and are at least expected to compete for a starting position. I can only point to 3 programs introducing brand new quarterbacks this year; Spencer Rattler at South Carolina, Jaxson Dart at Ole Miss, and Zach Calzada at Auburn.

The makeup of SEC quarterbacks in 2022 is intriguing. They return guys like Bryce Young on Hendon Hooker who threw up gaudy stats in 2021. There is a group of guys like Spencer Rattler and Jaxson Dart who transferred to new programs, but have the talent to be top of the country. Then there are the Anthony Richardson and Haynes King who have shown glimpses, but new are handed the keys. KJ Jefferson is the ultimate duel threat in the conference while Will Rodgers can pick teams apart from the pocket. Oh, and I haven’t even mentioned the 2021 National Championship winning quarterback, Stetson Bennett. This conference literally has everything.

Let me set up the parameters when trying to rank the SEC quarterbacks. 2021 success is weighed heavily. Turnover in the offensive coaching staff is taken into account, but it’s not everything. Loss of 2021 production at skill positions. And finally the talent that is expected to fill in for the lost production from last year.
