While the SEC is widely regarded as the top conference in college football, and rightfully so, the top three quarterbacks from the conference coming into the 2014 NFL Draft didn’t get much love from the teams, all for differing reasons, which led to a huge fall to Saturday for all of them.
Still, though, with the draft almost over, Alabama’s AJ McCarron, LSU’s Zach Mettengerber and Georgia’s Aaron Murray all officially have new homes where they will begin their professional football careers and start the process of potentially proving all the doubters wrong and make the teams that passed them up pay down the road.
We’ve seen our fair share of quarterbacks fall late in the draft and go onto successful NFL careers, of course I can’t say this without mentioning the fact that three-time Super Bowl winner and Patriots QB Tom Brady was a sixth-round pick. It’s redundant, I know, but it’s always more than relevant to a situation like this.
So, who fits the best in their new home? Who has the best chance of playing immediately in 2014?
Let’s have a look.
