Not a lot of guarantees at QB in the SEC

It’s safe to say that Arkansas’ Ryan Mallett has a pretty good handle on his job after throwing 30 touchdown passes in his first season in the league a year ago.

The same goes for Alabama’s Greg McElroy after leading the Crimson Tide to a national championship last season. After all, the guy hasn’t lost a game as a starting quarterback since the eighth grade.

But after the top two, there’s a little bit of uncertainty, a little bit of newness and a little bit of mystery elsewhere when you look at the quarterback position in the SEC.

Of course, it was the same way this time a year ago with Florida’s Tim Tebow and Ole Miss’ Jevan Snead. But Snead wound up throwing 20 interceptions and Mallett took the league by storm in his record-setting debut season. McElroy also went from a huge unknown to one of the pillars of Alabama’s national championship team.
