Others gaining momentum

Graham Mertz, Florida: After a strong debut season following his transfer from Wisconsin, Mertz returns to Gainesville as a proven veteran leader for Billy Napier's offense. The senior completed 63.9% of his passes for 2,561 yards and 19 touchdowns in 2023. With a year of experience in the system, Mertz gives the Gators excellent stability and is an established pocket passer capable of connecting with an impressive group of playmakers.

Jackson Arnold, Oklahoma: The former five-star recruit and elite transfer addition from the portal immediately provides Oklahoma with tantalizing upside heading into the SEC. Arnold's live arm talent and natural tools have the Sooners excited about the potential for an explosive passing game. As he gets acclimated to Seth Littrell's system, Arnold's ceiling is sky-high thanks to pinpoint accuracy and the ability to push the ball downfield. If the new-look offensive line holds up, Arnold could emerge as one of the conference's biggest breakout stars.

While the headliners capture the spotlight, underrated quarterbacks like Arkansas transfer Taylen Green and Kentucky's Brock Vandagriff help provide exceptional depth in a quarterback-loaded league.

The SEC is set to showcase elite passing talent and production across the board once again in 2024.
