The 2013 college football season in the SEC went down as one of the more loaded years in terms of the quarterback position that saw a host of dynamic, productive and accomplished group of signal-callers as any other conference in the nation and as talented as any other group of former SEC greats.
Gone are 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, two-time national champion as Alabama’s starting quarterback and one of the winningest quarterbacks in SEC history AJ McCarron, the conference’s all-time leading passer Aaron Murray as are Zach Mettenberger who won double-digit games each season at LSU, Connor Shaw who had a 24:1 touchdown to interception ratio and James Franklin who was the quarterback for the SEC east champions.
This year’s group of quarterbacks still features some stars in Nick Marshall,who helped guide the Auburn Tigers to the SEC title and a berth in the BCS National Championship Game, a few intriguing dual-threats, a couple pocket-passers who have waited patiently behind established stars, former top recruits and two transfers who may earn jobs, including one with national title implications.
