ESPN Staff Writer Alex Scarborough ranked the top quarterbacks in the SEC on Monday and pegged Alabama dual-threat QB Jalen Hurts at the top of the list.

1. Alabama QB Jalen Hurts: At the end of the day, a quarterback is judged on his record. And, frankly, Hurts was impeccable in that respect as a freshman, helping Alabama win the SEC and reach the College Football Playoff with a 14-1 record. The kid is pretty talented, too. The dual-threat QB amassed 3,734 total yards and 36 touchdowns while basically learning on the fly. With the maturity that comes with a year under his belt, along with the possibility of an improved deep ball, Hurts could be even more productive as a sophomore.
Here is the complete top five:

1. Jalen Hurts, Alabama
2. Nick Fitzgerald, Mississippi State
3. Austin Allen, Arkansas
4. Shea Patterson, Ole Miss
5. Jarrett Stidham, Auburn

Hurts isn't even the best QB on his team, but whatever. The Bentley kid from USCe deserves to be up there and Stidham will be #1 at years end.
