Three Key QB Battles In The SEC

Would ya believe that spring practices actually start up this week when Army and Duke take the field?  Good Lord.  Football just ended.

Mike Huguenin of takes a look today at “10 teams whose starting quarterbacks’ play could mean the difference between a 10-win season and a 7-5 or 6-6 campaign.”  Of those 10, three QB battles will take place in the SEC (in Huguenin’s view):

Auburn — Clint Moseley vs Barrett Trotter

“QB Cam Newton can’t be adequately replaced, so look for coordinator Gus Malzahn to tweak the offense to lessen the importance of the quarterback having to make plays.”

Huguenin’s projected starter: Trotter

Florida — John Brantley vs Jeff Driskel

“… Brantley became gun-shy in the pocket last season, locking onto certain receivers and throwing way too many dump-off passes.  Can (Charlie) Weis ‘fix’ him?”

Huguenin’s projected starter: Brantley

LSU — Jordan Jefferson vs Jarrett Lee vs Zach Mettenberger

“… if LSU has serious designs on an SEC title this fall, it must get more consistent quarterback play.”

Huguenin’s projected starter: Mettenberger
