Taking a Look at the Potential Senior Bowl QBs in 2024

We still have a whole college football season to play, but if you ask Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy, it’s never too early to start taking a look at who could be in Mobile for the 2024 Senior Bowl. The potential group of quarterbacks is absolutely loaded and could be one of the best groups the game has ever seen. Let’s take a look at some of the names that could end up here:

Bo Nix, Oregon:

The former Auburn and current Oregon QB has had quite the career arc. He showed flashes at Auburn but never really became the QB that Tiger fans hoped he would be after a promising freshman year followed by two more seasons full of ups and downs. He had by far the best season of his career after transferring to Oregon and playing for first-year head coach Dan Lanning and if he can build on that this year, could sneak into the early rounds of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Joe Milton, Tennessee:

Joe Milton, who will take over for Hendon Hooker at Tennessee this season after Hooker led one of the best offenses in college football last season, has arguably the strongest arm in the country. Milton took over as the starter after Hooker tore his ACL late in the season and his phenomenal performance in the Orange Bowl led the Vols to a dominating win over Clemson. He’s a name that could absolutely skyrocket up draft boards with a big season.

Jayden Daniels, LSU:

Daniels became Brian Kelly’s first starter at LSU after transferring from Arizona State and was able to lead the Tigers to an SEC West title that included a win over Alabama where the Tide had no answers for his legs. He is one of the more tricky prospects to figure out, but certainly has enough tools in the bag to be an NFL prospect. Another big season at LSU will have scouts raving about his dual-threat potential at the next level.

Spencer Rattler, South Carolina:

Spencer Rattler is another example of someone who has had quite the career arc. He was one of the highest rated quarterbacks in the nation coming out of high school, but it never worked out for him at Oklahoma, in large part due to the emergence of Caleb Williams. Rattler really became an afterthought for a large part of the season until the end of the year when the Gamecocks defeated Tennessee and Clemson in back to back weeks. He considered entering the draft this year but elected to return to raise his draft stock.

Sam Hartman, Notre Dame:

Hartman has quietly been one of the best signal callers in the country over the last few seasons at Wake Forest and even led the Demon Deacons to 11 wins in 2021. Now he transfers to Notre Dame and will have a chance to put his name on the map even more so in 2023. In 2021, he threw for over 4,000 yards and added 39 touchdowns with just 14 picks then threw another 38 in 2022 after missing the first game of the season. Look for Hartman to throw his name in the hat as a potential first-rounder with another great season.
