Where Jayden Daniels ranks among SEC passers after Week 3

After his performance on Saturday, Jayden Daniels has cemented himself as one of the top quarterbacks in the SEC.

He completed 30 of 34 passes for 361 yards and two touchdowns. On the ground, he carried it 13 times for 77 yards (not subtracting sack yardage) and rushed for two more scores. It was as good as a performance we’ve seen from an LSU QB since Joe Burrow wore purple and gold.

Here’s where Daniels ranks among SEC passers after Week 4.
