    Graham Mertz enters his sixth season overall and second under center for Florida.
    Last year, the former Wisconsin quarterback’s 1.4% turnover-worthy play rate was the third-best mark in the country and his 77.9 passing grade was a career high.

    Expectations are high for his backup, true freshman DJ Lagway, who was the top quarterback recruit in the 2024 class.
    The third-stringer will be Clay Millen, who started for Colorado State in 2022. His 7.3% big-time throw rate that year ranked eighth among all signal-callers in college football.

    This is better than Josh Pate's 'SEC QB only' rating a week or two back.
    Interesting that LSU is nowhere in the Top 10 in PFF's rankings.
    Josh Pate's SEC Quarterback Ratings Entering 2024 (Late Kick Cut)

    SEC Quarterback Room Rating (per Josh Pate)

    9.50 - Texas (Ewers, Manning, Owens)
    9.25 - Georgia (Beck, Stockton, Rashada, Puglisi)
    9.00 - LSU (Nussmeier, Swann, Collins)
    8.50 - GATORS (Mertz, Lagway, Millen)
    8.50 - Alabama (Milroe, Simpson, Lonergan, Mack)
    8.50 - Tennessee (Iamaleava, Moore, Merklinger)
    8.25 - Ole Miss (Dart, Howard, Simmons)
    7.50 - Oklahoma (Arnold, Thompson, Hawkins)
    7.25 - Missouri (Cook, Glover, Blood Jr)
    7.00 - Texas A&M (Weigman, Henderson, Reed)
    6.50 - South Carolina (Sellers, Ashford, Beville)
    6.50 - Kentucky (Vandagriff, Allen, Boley)
    6.50 - Arkansas (Green, Singleton, Jackson)
    5.50 - Auburn (Thorne, Brown, Geriner)
    5.00 - Miss Stake (Shapen, Parson)
    4.50 - Vanderbilt (Pavia, Johnson, Berlowitz)

    And if he goes down again, we have better options.

    He's rating Nussmeier all on hype. Iamaleava also. Maybe one or both will light it up. But now it's hype.

    If there is one thing that Dillon Gabriel's 6 year career to stardom in Tier 1 status has taught us is that his first year in a new system is by far the worst one. Good luck Oregon Ducks on your one year rental.
