How important is the quarterback position? How far do you think Auburn would have gotten without Cam Newton in 2010? How good do you think Texas A&M would have been last season minus Johnny Manziel?
No single player can quickly flip the fortunes of a football program like a quarterback. And in the cases of Newton, Manziel, and also Tim Tebow, being a dual-threat quarterback can make a player’s impact even more profound.
Last season, the top 12 total offense leaders in the SEC were quarterbacks. Nine will return in 2013. Three will have to be replaced:
|Quarterback||School||Rush Yds||Pass Yds||Total Yds||Gone/Returns|
|Johnny Manziel||Texas A&M||1410||3706||5116||Returns|
|Bo Wallace||Ole Miss||390||2994||3384||Returns|
|Tyler Russell||Miss. State||-5||2897||2892||Returns|
|Connor Shaw||S. Carolina||435||1956||2391||Returns|
So who’s in the best position at the most important position as spring practice sessions kick off across the SEC?
