So you're saying he'll be the best QB this season, behind Marshall?

Quite a drop off in QB talent from 2013 to 2014. I'd say it's the right time to have a young secondary!

Yes, easily. And he's a better passer than Marshall. He would probably put up even better numbers than Marshall in that Offense.

Coker will be really solid too. And Thompson will put up solid passing numbers as well. Coker and Thompson will both benefit from really good OLs and running games.

That SC doesn't take their spring game seriously?

Marshall wasn't at Auburn for last year's spring game. Give him a year in Malzahn's system and his improvements passing, watch out.

LOL, unless your clem5on with live action coming at the QB, the game is setup for your O to do well.

I remember watching this game last season. My cousin and her husband live in Starkville and he is an MSU grad...she's a Gamecock. I was texting back and forth with him and even he admitted that Tyler Russell needed to play more, despite the fact he is awful.

We might have lost that game if anyone other than Prescott plays that day. His turnovers were pitiful and seriously cost MSU any chance of winning. I don't care how much you run, turnovers are huge. The fact Shaw had 1 interception this season has a lot to do why he is going to be remembered as the greatest QB ever at SC. Not because the statistic, but because we won so many games as a result of him protecting the football. In fact, it's no coincidence that one of the games we lost he had a key fumble which gave UGA some separation.

Prescott, not only isn't in the Top 4, he seriously might just be the worst QB in the SEC. He can't throw a lick and he's a decent runner. He doesn't protect the football. This list seems to have ranked the QB's giving a huge edge to QB's who have the most experience. The same goes for Bo Wallace. For a guy ranked #2 on a list, he sure did have to watch the backup come in drive after drive a lot to try to score some points.

Thompson's #'s are pretty solid. Even against Mizzou his #'s weren't terrible. The issue with him is will he be able to will this team to wins like Shaw. Thompson didn't step up last season and get that done when given the chance (UT, Mizzou). But he has in the past. I'm taking him over most of those top ranked QBs as far as this list goes.

What sticks out the most to me is how unlucky Shaw was to play in the time he did. He would be All-SEC without a doubt heading into this season. Probably 1st team. Yet he wasn't even an honorable mention which was a huge slap in the face at the end of the season...especially with the season he had. It shows the disrespect he and SC gets by some publications. I believe that's the case with this article as well...as some QB's are ranked on experience, but Coker is ranked ahead of Thompson, with no experience. Thompson has outperformed most of the QB's on this list, easily in the time he's had to play. Even with Shaw, guys like McCarron, Murray, and Maziel didn't bother me. But a guy like Mettenberger being touted as a better college QB is just ridiculous. Shaw had a MUCH BETTER career than he did...but he played at LSU and for the most part of that was a pretty lousy QB in my opinion.

Dude Auburn went to the National championship game last year. Anybody that watched that O and knows football knows that they are legit! Spring game or no that is one of the top 5 offenses in the Nation!

Dude not saying they are not good, but to say a player is leaps and bounds better due to how they did in a spring game is a joke.

I'm saying he's leaps and bounds better due to the intense practice and workouts after the season he undertook. It just showed during the A-Day game how much he'd improved.

do it against people trying to put you in the ground and I will believe it. Doing it knowing you are not going to get hit is another thing. We have all seen/heard of practice heros.

Well, seeing how he has an SEC title I'd say he's a bit more than a "practice hero".

Not sure why the Bama QB is ahead of DT when he has yet to even play...oh yeah he plays for Bama. Can't argue with the top 4. Dak is a better overall QB than Marshall but it's Marshall's offense that makes him so good.

I know you are an Aubrun fan, but I never said he wasn't good. I said a spring game does not really tell if a player has improved by "leaps and Bounds".

Jeff Driskel is the real sleeper on this list. Mark my words. Injured early and he would've progressed as the season went along. He will have a big season getting away from that pro style offense Florida had no business running.

As an sec qb goes, he's awesome with the combined skill set. As far as a prototypical drop back passer who scans the field and makes plays with his arm, he is not. That said, I'd take him in a second.

Whatever. But if you watch that offense when it is clicking it is pretty special. They will be competing for a championship again yhis year most likely. Marshall is one hell of a player in that Offense.

I don't put a lot of stock into Spring games either but if you watched some of it and know anything about football you can tell that their Offense is going to be electric again this year.
