… returning SEC quarterbacks fall into three parts.
Mr. Eason lies smack dab in the middle of the promising sophomores group.
6. Jacob Eason, Georgia
2016: 204/370 (55.1%), 2,430 yards (6.6 per attempt), 16 TDs, 8 INTs, 120.2 passing efficiency
The true freshman’s season was vaguely disappointing, not unlike the result for the Georgia team as a whole. His highs were high, but his lows were both quite low and too frequent. He did improve through the season, but he spoiled it with mediocre showings against Georgia Tech and in the bowl against TCU. He has all of the physical tools, but it may take him longer to put it all together than anticipated before last year.
Throwaway quarterback year, for the win.
