By: Kenneth Harrison Jr. news services

The Florida Gators are one of the most successful programs in the SEC in the last 25 years. The only program that has had more success is Alabama in the Nick Saban era.

NFC South Quarterback Division

jjBy: JJ Lanier

If you’re a fan of the NFC South then you’re in luck, because from top to bottom, it has the strongest quarterback play of any division in football.

You have the reigning MVP in Cam Newton. A future Hall of Famer with Drew Brees. Jameis Winston has an incredibly bright future. And Matt Ryan is not only one of the better second tier quarterbacks around, but he has a nickname made for a beer endorsement.
