SEC QB Rankings - Do what?

Look, I get that Hutson Mason isn't getting much love as a top SEC QB. That is fair.

However, this list is one of those thing that make you wonder if someone is attempting performance art. I have no problem with the first two, but then we get to Jeff Driskel:
1. Nick Marshall, Auburn- The most decorated returning starter in the league- who led his team to the SEC Championship and a BCS National Title Game last season- has to rank No. 1. With improved passing numbers this season, Marshall could get in the hunt for the Heisman Trophy.
2. Dak Prescott, Mississippi State- Prescott has gone from a “darkhorse” Heisman Trophy contender to a player most national analysts talk about when discussing potential winners. The Bulldogs have an excellent supporting cast around him and much like Marshall, he’s a terrific scheme fit.
3. Jeff Driskel, Florida- Driskel missed most of last season with an injury, but his upside and potential- combined with a new scheme under coordinator Kurt Roper- should lead to a big year for the Gators signal caller. He’s one of- if not the- best weapons Florida has on offense.
All of this with Bo Wallace, Matty Mauk, Dylan Thompson, and Huston Mason still to be ranked. Just hard to comprehend this. He might be right (though I hope not), but based on what we saw out of Driskel last year pre-injury, no way I put him above any of these four.
