After seeing the meteoric rise of Joe Burrow from 2018 to 2019, many people are wondering if Gator QB Kyle Trask can make that same leap under Dan Mullen. Let's look @ them side by side.
Both are similar in the way that they were buried on depth charts to start their college careers. Burrow @ Ohio State and Trask at Florida behind Franks. Joe Burrow got his opportunity in 2018, playing in 13 games, throwing for 16 TD's and 5 INT's, with a modest 2,800 yards passing.
Burrow then exploded in 2019 to deliver the best college season EVER by a QB. 5,600 passing yards, 60 TD's, and just 6 INT's. All while playing the stiffest schedule in the country, winning the Heisman, the National Title, and landing as the top overall pick.
Going to be tough to compete with that.
Last year, Trask was thrust into action a couple weeks into the season after Feleipe Franks went down with an injury. He threw for over 2,900 yards, 25 TD's, and 7 INT's. Adding 4 touchdowns on the ground.
If you compare, Trask's year of opportunity was actually more productive than Burrow's, and when you consider Trask played in one less game, it makes it even more impressive.
In 2020, assuming a season gets played, the Gators schedule will look nothing like the Tigers in 2019, it's fairly soft, and Trask will have the chance to put up monster #'s.
I don't see him matching the rise of Burrow in '19, but stranger things have happened. Let us know what you think, vote on the poll below!
