On Thursday, Tom Fornelli of CBS Sports unveiled his Top 10 College Football QB Power Rankings and put LSU's Jayden Daniels at No. 9.

Daniels was the only SEC quarterback to crack the list. Here's what he had to say:
quote:

9. Jayden Daniels
LSU TIGERS QB


Jayden Daniels played well for LSU last season, and while I considered ranking him higher, some believe there's a chance -- slim as it may be -- that Daniels won't be LSU's starter come the fall. Maybe that'll be the case, but if LSU starts the year ranked in the top 10 and viewed as a playoff contender, Daniels' 2022 performance will be a big reason why. He has to be included here.
Daniels passed for 2,774 yards, with 16 touchdowns and three interceptions last season. He also rushed for 818 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Nuss has literally only played 1 good half against an uninspired defense. What he has shown is that he loves to throw deep no matter the outcome. He’s extremely talented but not very smart with the football. Y’all act like Daniels didn’t just have the 2nd most productive season in LSU history. He’s no slouch!

We all know defense wins championships. I love it when LSU has a solid defense. I cant stomach giving up 28+ points but it seems like this is how the game is going.

The Jaden side refuses to try to understand the other sides argument at all. Jaden a good QB BUT he's unwilling to push the ball downfield like Nuss does, the offensive upside seems higher with Nuss. I'm pulling for Jaden to just be comfortable enough to push it downfield sometimes. The Jaden defenders also pretend that BK said as much by saying as much around mid season. Both arguments are legitimate, but if Jaden can't learn to open it up then it's going to limit the offense and therefore the teams ceiling this year

What does Kelly do this late August when Nussmeier out-plays, out-smarts, and out-competes Daniels, with more strength, and more ability to scan a defense and release the ball to a receiver in stride, accurately every time? Does he sit Daniel's? That's what a great coach would do. Saban did it to Hurts. That worked out pretty well for everybody. Too bad for Hurts that NIL wasn't a thing when that happened. OU boosters would have paid a lot more to get him than he likely got.

Final year of eligibility. A chance to work hard to build chemistry with his receivers. Enough time to learn his playbook. Ton of natural athleticism.

If he isn’t a top 10 it’s only because of laziness

He is not consistent and holds the ball way too long!The only way LSU has a chance is to go dual threat !

Neither is Garrett Nussmeier...and Jaden Daniels is a dual threat.

I was pleased with Daniels performance in 2022. Ignore the haters Jayden.

Sometimes, I believe that these haters critique him on more than just his play. Ask Ricky Jefferson what he thinks about "certain" LSU fans!

I think he's lower than 9. I'd have him between 4-6.

@geaux I agree. I guess when I said higher, I meant higher ranked.
