So as much as I'd love to say camps and rankings don't mean sh$t, they do measure certain attributes. Our only division championship we had an elite 11 qb under center, just a little food for thought.
Bentley was at the Atlanta regional of the Elite 11

He was there but he was not eligible to go to the Elite 11 because he was a Junior. Trevor Lawrence, Clemson's top-rated QB, was there as well but not able to attend the Elite 11 (he did this year).

The write-up on Lawrence shows the weakness of the Elite Eleven process. Lawrence was lights-out until the "pressure" portion when he had four straight incompletions. The Elite Eleven skillset does not necessarily translate to game success when the bullets start flying and the rushers start coming - that is why the dual threat guys tend to do better in the actual games. They have poorer mechanics but can avoid pressure.

Ace, you're better than this. Bentley was a junior going into his senior year , same as Chase Brice who won the competition and went to the elite eleven finals in California from the Atlanta regional. T Lawrence was a sophomore going into his junior year so was not eligible. The elite eleven competition is for juniors going into the senior year. Just like DJ and TL this year are juniors going into there senior year and both went to California because they won there regional.

Apparently I'm not better, LOL. I lost track of my years there.

I looked at Bentley's highlights and was surprised at how many were runs. He was never a true dual threat, but maybe he was too quick to take off for the Elite 11 folks.

Anyway, not mkaing the Elite 11 has been proven not to be a big deal. Interesting that Chase Brice, who is being looked at as maybe the #3 QB at Clemson (who will probably fall to #4 when Lawrence arrives), was the top performed in the ATL camp.
