Mike Denbrock speaks to Jayden Daniels' development and Malik Nabers' dedication
Jayden Daniels will be one of the most intriguing quarterbacks in the country this season, as the LSU signal caller eases into Year 2 in the LSU system.
He’s arguably the best QB in the SEC, and has some of the most experience in the country. Daniels has 43 career starts, which ranks second to only Oregon’s Bo Nix (47) and Notre Dame’s Sam Hartman (45).
Daniels last year set school records for rushing yards by a QB (885) and rushing TDs by a QB (11). He also became LSU’s record holder for rushing and passing TDs in the same game, and did it 6 times.
“Year 2 allows him to have a comfort level from a knowledge standpoint and a personnel standpoint where he feels he can let it rip a little,” offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock said. “We encourage him to more and more.”
One of Daniels’ top targets will be Malik Nabers, and Denbrock appreciates the wide receiver’s dedication.
“He comes to better his craft every single day,” Denbrock said. “There’s not a time where he doesn’t have his complete attention on getting better at what he does on the practice field.”
