Interesting, Thompson has beat more season ending ranked teams than 2-5 combined.

A top-performing OL and a stable of good RB's boosts any quarterback's performance. Thompson may get the benefit of both this year. A&M may be a good start, though their defense hasn't been the star of their show.

DT will finish as the best QB in the SEC this year. The showdown with Auburn vs. Marshall is going to be epic.

Default Re: Athlon Ranks the SEC's QBs

Kind of surprised Marshall is ranked that high. I never tabbed him as a great QB. He missed several wide open throws in the National Championship game that would have been touchdowns.

He's a great athlete and is perfect for that system they run...however as far as a true QB, that ranking surprises me.

I wouldn't tab Marshall as #1 , I saw him miss a lot of throws in the bcs champ game. If he was a better passer fsu would not have won. He missed a lot of passes in the 2nd half when they could have blown that game open and put fsu on their heels. fsu saw that he wasn't accurate enough to beat them and they took advantage of it.

I'd take Prescott over any QB in the SEC right now hands down. He is the real deal.

The crop of QBs in the SEC in general is a little weak this year. DT has all the tools in place to have a big year, just has to go out there and get it done.

To be expected really with all the seasoned QB's gone. A lot of new faces in the SEC this year at QB. I didn't realize LSU might have a true freshman at QB. I just assumed that Anthony Jennings would've taken over. I guess he didn't win the spot.

Y'all need to hit up YouTube and watch Auburn's A-day game footage. It took him a couple plays to settle down, but you can tell he's improved by leaps and bounds over the offseason. Also helps he'll have one of the deeper WR corps in the SEC doesn't hurt.

Marshall is best for that system.

You don't need to be a professional talent to run that offense well.

I watched him throw 3 ints against us and zero touchdowns. Not sure where he "shredded" anybody.

I thought Alabama called their spring game A-Day?

He shredded us on the ground that game averaging over 5 ypc with 2 TDs. Also threw for well over 200 yards. Yea the turnovers helped us win the game but if you remember they moved the ball with ease on us. Again appears you did not watch the game.

Also he threw for almost 2000 yards on the season with 10 TDs and ran for over 800 with 13 TDs on the ground!! In only 11 games.

You obviously didn't watch the kid play. He is the best rushing QB in the league slightly behind Marahall and he is a much improved passer and better than Marahall in that respect.

We all watched him play us last year. He was an average QB, with good mobility. He certainly didn't shred us.

I think he'll improve, but I doubt he'll be the best QB in the conference. He has a nice skillset though.

Not talking about just our game. He put up crazy rushing numbers and will only improve in Mullen's O this year. He'll put up the best QB numbers in the conference this year besides Marshall in that system.
