In the midst of a stellar 2023, Daniels is on his way to joining Burrow near the top of LSU’s record books. With a few games to go, Daniels still has room to climb, but he is already top three in several key categories.
Daniels’ ability to account for yardage through the air and on the ground has made him one of the sport’s most productive players over the last two years.
Here’s where Daniels sits among LSU quarterbacks as he prepares for Florida this weekend.
5,705 passing yards - 8th
Daniels is eighth on the all-time passing yards list. With a solid performance on Saturday, he can jump to sixth.
The ceiling here is probably third place. If Daniels plays four more games this year and averages 304 yards per game, he’ll pass JaMarcus Russell and Jeff Wickersham to sit behind Burrow and Tommy Hodson.
61 total touchdowns - 4th
With 33 total touchdowns this fall, Daniels has skyrocketed up this list.
Only Burrow, Hodson and Herb Tyler have more. With two more scores, Daniels can tie Tyler at third.
With 10 more touchdowns, Daniels can tie Hodson in second place.
166.1 passer rating - 2nd
We’ll stick with QBs who’ve attempted at least 100 passes for this one.
Only Burrow has a better career passer rating than Jayden Daniels at this point. Daniels is a good bit in front of Rohan Davey, who is third.
69.9 completion percentage - 1st
Daniels sits atop this leaderboard right now, following his 68.6 completion rate last year with a 72.1 this year. He’s just ahead of Joe Burrow, who is second with a career 68.5 completion percentage.
9.0 yards per attempt - 3rd
We’ll stick with a minimum of 100 attempts again here. Daniels sits at third here thanks to his stellar 2023, during which he’s averaged a career-high 11.3 yards per attempt.
