No. 3 – KJ Jefferson
Team: Arkansas Razorbacks
2022 Passing Stats: 204 completions, 2,648 yards, 24 touchdowns
If the Arkansas Razorbacks are winning football games, it’s because KJ Jefferson is healthy and making plays. We have a ton of respect for the Hogs and their trench warfare style of play.
However, Jefferson is the quarterback that differentiates winning 8-9 games from 5-6. Ironically, Jefferson was injured for part of last season, including Arkansas’ 13-10 home loss against the LSU Tigers last November.
Unfinished business is the mantra of 2023 for KJ Jefferson. He has all the physical tools to lead Arkansas to a big season and offers a third season of continuity at the position the Hogs have not enjoyed in a long time.
We expect Jefferson to have Arkansas in every game this season.
