LSU Spring Football Position Recap: Quarterbacks

Spring practice for the Tigers is in the books. Tiger Blitz takes a look at the current state of the LSU quarterback position.

Follow @BillyEmbody

This spring, Matt Canada installed his offense for the Tigers and in the spring game, it didn't show well at all. Throughout spring though, Ed Orgeron and players reported that the offense gave the defense fits with how Canada used motions, misdirection and other plays to fool Dave Aranda's squad.

At the center of it all is the quarterback competition that Orgeron deemed as open. Here's Tiger Blitz' take on the quarterback competition out of spring.

The Leader

There's no doubt that Danny Etling is the leader coming out of spring practices, even with his poor performance in LSU's Spring Game. The senior from Indiana went just 4-for-11 in the spring game for 53 yards including a 35-yard completion to D.J. Chark. Those numbers don't jump out at you at all, but during the spring, Etling had his way with the Tigers defense according to many people Scout talked with. 

The senior is expected to be a game manager for LSU since he's yet to prove that he can truly take over a game, something Orgeron looks for in his quarterbacks. The thing is, we've yet to see LSU's full offense. When that happens against BYU, we'll know exactly what LSU is working with having Etling at the helm. It'd be quite the shock if he doesn't come out of camp as the starter.

Etling has said (below) that the offense has been relatively easy to pick up for him, but after a minor procedure on his back, he'll have to rehab a little bit to get things back the way he wants them to be. From there, he's got to continue to get better in the little things to make things click on offense.

Chasing Etling for the Job

Coming out of spring practices, Justin McMillan is the one that currently holds the edge as the backup signal caller, but pushing him is Lindsey Scott, Caleb Lewis and Lowell Narcisse coming for the backup job as well. McMillan looked very comfortable in practices throwing the ball, but needs to work on his consistency to get the chance to challenge Etling.

While Scott brings a true dual-threat, he's got to be better in his mechanics to help him make that jump to the next level. Lewis is serviceable, but also needs work in his consistency and is battling the stigma of walk-on. Narcisse has the biggest arm of the bunch and showed it off at times, but is shaking the rust off from his ACL recovery. When that's done, McMillan (below) will have a big challenger for the backup job by the time fall camp rolls around. Having that dual-threat ability also gives Narcisse the chance to bring that added element to the offense as well.

Biggest Area of Concern

Arm Strength. LSU doesn't have a quarterback on the roster outside of Narcisse that can really sling it right now. Even four-star quarterback signee Myles Brennan will have to add weight and strength to get his arm into SEC shape — that's not a knock, but just the truth. As Brennan takes a likely redshirt year, his redshirt freshman spring and fall camp should really be something as he will display that added strength while competing for the starting job.

Back to the guys really competing, Etling can more a lot of the throws, but doesn't have an absolute rocket. You'd like to see more consistency from the quarterbacks overall too, which Canada wants as well. That goes for Etling, McMillan, Scott and Narcisse — the whole group we've seen. It's a big plus that Narcisse has that arm strength and LSU could really push the ball down the field with him. LSU would love to have a guy that can make every throw and has a big arm, but right now, the Tigers don't really have that overall. It's concerning at times with the speed of the SEC as we saw when Kevin Toliver picked off an in-route thrown a little late by Etling on Saturday.

What's Next?

The summer brings plenty of opportunity for improvement during 7-on-7 led by the players without coaches and for the quarterbacks to work on their timing in the new offense, which features emphasis on different routes than previous years. That work in the summer can make or break how far the offense is able to come in Year 1 with the threat of Derrius Guice around for a final season. 

Etling has to work through some slight rehab and strengthen his back again to allow for more stress to be put on it, McMillan needs to work on consistency, Scott needs to work on his mechanics to help with consistency, Narcisse has to shake the rust from his injury and Brennan needs to continue to work on the playbook and in the weight room. That's the quick roundabout of what's in store for the LSU quarterbacks this summer heading into fall camp. 

Quick Thoughts:

  • Myles Brennan should redshirt. He just needs time to get bigger before taking an SEC beating.
  • Etling has to trust his arm more. One common theme from spring ball was Matt Canada yelling, "Throw it, Danny!" as if Etling wasn't stepping into his throws enough. The back injury might have played a part in that.
  • McMillan looked infinitely better than in the fall and was much more comfortable, but needs some seasoning still.
  • Don't believe Scott will end up challenging for the job. He brings a nice element with his ability to run, but needs more work on his mechanics and is fairly short. Scott is built sturdy though and could potentially play running back.
  • Narcisse's arm is really strong. Don't know if that's conveyed enough, and he's playing his first football in a while. 
  • The Narcisse vs. Brennan battle whenever that happens is going to be quite the conundrum for the coaching staff. Both will bring a lot in different ways to the table when that time comes.
