Going back a decade or more, the Southeastern Conference has been one of the most successful conferences in college football, only rivaling the Big 12 and Big Ten. At the head of that success, at least offensively, is the Quarterback, with a plethora of names over the years who have led their teams to post-season success, and personal recognition.

Recently, Athlon Sports released their annual Magazine, which you can purchase here, highlighting a long list of rankings relating to the upcoming 2022 college football season, including a concise ranking of all 14  Quarterback rooms in the SEC conference. For the Aggies, the quarterback competition is ongoing and is a unique mixture of talent, experience, and relentless determination, with the battle being between redshirt sophomore, Haynes King, junior, and LSU transfer, Max Johnson, and 5-star freshman, Conner Weigman.

As a whole, The SEC might be the most loaded in terms of NFL talent at the quarterback position going into this season, with a number of potential first-round prospects, and some of the deepest depth charts we’ve seen in years. Before the 2021 season for the Aggies, their QB depth chart consisted of Haynes King, Zach Calzada (now with Auburn), and walk-on, Blake Bost, putting their current unit in the much better territory by far.

Now, here is Athlon’s ranking of every SEC Quarterback room from 1-14!
