Browning efficient and hungry

The Pac-12 has some solid passing games, and that means good quarterbacks. In fact, a Bleacher Report article by David Kenyon listed the top ten NCAA quarterbacks, and included three from the Pac-12:

Luke Falk out of Washington State University, Josh Rosen out of UCLA, and finally, Sam Darnold out of USC.  Ne’er an honorable mention for Jake Browning out of the University of Washington. After leading the Washington Huskies to a Pac-12 championship, into the NCAA playoffs, and with a ridiculously efficient 43 touchdowns and nine interceptions, he doesn’t make a top ten list.

And he was injured last season.

But without recognition, Browning is gearing up for the ultimate prize, an NFL contract.  To do that, he needs to put up some serious numbers this year.   But he’s not alone.  Both Pettis and McClatcher have his back.
