No. 7: Patrick Towles – Kentucky Wildcats

The Kentucky quarterback job is basically up for grabs. Our beset guess is that it looks like the Wildcats will have Towles as the starter after the exit of Whitlow. It is still a toss up as to who will be the starter, but I think with his spring numbers plus the other quarterbacks being young and inexperienced, the job is Towles’ to lose. We only really have his 2012 numbers to go off and they are not that impressive. With Kentucky’s lack of offense I do not see Towles being able to put up a lot of big numbers this season.
