Marcus Spears on Mizzou QB Kelly Bryant: He's 'the most intriguing QB in the country'
Former Clemson QB Kelly Bryant is now at Mizzou, and he was a popular guy at SEC Media Days on Monday in Hoover, Alabama.
He takes over a Tiger offense that has a lot of weapons returning, so he’ll be in a position to make some big-time plays.
On Monday’s episode of “The Paul Finebaum Show,” SEC Network analyst Marcus Spears said he thinks Bryant is the most intriguing quarterback in the entire country this fall:
“As good as Drew Lock was, he didn’t hurt you in multiple ways,” Spears said. “We’ve seen the ability of a dual-threat quarterback to overcompensate for things you possibly lack in offense. Kelly Bryant, to me, is the most intriguing quarterback in the country this year.”
Spears added that Bryant shouldn’t be knocked for losing his job at Clemson:
“Kelly Bryant lost his job to a once-in-20-years quarterback in Trevor Lawrence,” he said. “Trevor Lawrence’s ain’t out there walking around.”
A lot of eyes will be on Bryant this fall. He’s already lead Clemson to the College Football Playoff title game (a loss to Alabama), so he’s no stranger to pressure. It could be a special year for him in Columbia.
