The SEC is best known for its ferocious defenses and bruising running backs, but the quarterback position should be an underrated strength of the conference in 2012. There are a number of quarterbacks who could make a legitimate case for the No. 1 spot at QB just days before the start of the season. Anyone who has Arkansas Razorback tickets can tell you that senior Tyler Wilson is one of the best in the country. In his first year taking over for Ryan Mallett, Wilson led the conference with over 3,600 yards passing and was named First Team All-SEC. He’s got a strong arm, great knowledge of offensive coordinator Paul Petrino’s offense, a go-to receiver in Cobi Hamilton, and takes care of the football.While Wilson has the production to be called the SEC’s best, Tennessee junior Tyler Bray has the potential to take that title by the end of the season. Standing 6-foot-6 with a rifle arm, Bray looks the part of a prototypical drop back passer. Unfortunately, he has not been able to stay healthy during his time with the Vols. Bray just lost his most dependable weapon in WR Da’Rick Rogers, but he also gets the ultra-talented Justin Hunter back to fill that void. He is also prone to turnovers, and needs to keep his gunslinger attitude in check at times.

Georgia’s Aaron Murray enters his third year as a starter for the Bulldogs, but he still does not receive his proper due nationally. The Second Team All-SEC performer led the conference with 35 touchdown passes, and also threw for 3,149 yards. Despite standing just 6-foot-1, he has a huge arm and is a solid NFL prospect, and is also more mobile than given credit for. If he can guide his team to the SEC Championship, he would make a serious argument for the top spot. A sleeper candidate to watch out for is Missouri’s James Franklin, who was an underrated force in the Big 12 in his first year as a starter. The dual-threat Franklin is a load to bring down when he takes off running, as he rushed for nearly 1,000 yards on the ground a year ago with 15 touchdowns. He was also accurate throwing the ball as well, connecting on over 63 percent of his throws for 2,865 yards and 21 touchdowns through the air. Franklin also now has the No. 1 receiver recruit in the country, Dorial Green-Beckham, snaring passes for him, so his numbers should improve.While Wilson currently has the edge, the margin is minimal, and each one of these players is capable of earning First Team All-SEC honors this fall.
