Returning SEC QBs and their comp%

Not many topics on here elicit more vociferous debate than those about Tennessee quarterbacks, past, present and future.

So here you go.....according to Pro Football Focus, there is something called “Adjusted Completion Percentage”. It is defined as a QB’s completion percentage after accounting for dropped passes, throwaways spiked balls, batted passes and passes thrown as the quarterback was hit.

Here are the top 5 returning QBs in the SEC this year and their respective Adjusted Completion Percentages....

1. J. La’Amu (Ole Miss) 76.8%
2. J. Hurts (Alabama) 76.2%
3. J. Stidham (Auburn) 75.3%
4. J. Guarantano (UT) 73.6%
5. J. Fromm (UGA) 72.6%

Aside from noticing that evidently all SEC QBs’ first names appear to begin with the letter “J”, I thought it interesting to see that Guarantano, who at least half VN thinks is horrible and will be easily beaten out by Keller Chryst this summer, is just behind Stidham and just ahead of Fromm on this list.

How does the ranking change when all those things that are part of a normal football game receive consideration?

I think this means Jarrett needs to stop spiking it, throwing it away, getting hit while he throws, throwing the ball at defenders' raised hands, and throwing it to receivers who tend to drop passes that hit them in the hands.

Then he'll be excellent.

Well considering the coaching, or lack there of, that JG has had, our horrid OL and terrible WRs, its a wonder his stats are that good.

67% and over 9 ypa his last four starts. He got better as the year progressed. He needs to get rid of it faster but passed it much better than many give him credit for.

Exactly. That was the point.

This isn't all on Jarrett. Correcting all those missteps is a whole-offense thing. Coaches and players alike.

That was indeed the point.

Does it count as a completion if it's completed to the defender?

So after you take away his non counting passes for ACR, what did he end up with 20-30 passes on the season?

Wow. Look at JG's %'s. He must be awesome! That UT team probably lit up the scoreboards with that kind of offense last year!!

I apologize if not because I was living in an apparent alternate reality where UT's QB's were hot garbage, the offense couldn't score points in 4 straight games, and went 4-8..

Adjusted completion percentage...

JG finished 4th in the SEC last year at 73.6%

This percentage accounts for drops, throw aways, and spikes.

Basically he’s better than Jake Fromm

Jarrett plays great until teams start dialing up pressure and he takes a few hits - he had trouble finishing strong in games.
