The ACC will have to replace some experienced quarterbacks in 2011, such as
Christian Ponder, Tyrod Taylor and Russell Wilson. Seven sophomores are expected
to be starting in the ACC this year, with just one senior. There will be a lot
of inexperience, and which of those inexperienced quarterbacks makes the most
strides could determine the pecking order of the ACC this season.

Christian Ponder, T.J. Yates and Tyrod Taylor are off to the NFL. Russell
Wilson is transferring from NC State, while trying to juggle Minor League
Baseball and college football. Kyle Parker gave up football to pursue a baseball
career. Josh Nesbitt’s excellent career at Georgia Tech has come to an end as
well.

There will be new faces under center in the ACC this season. Here’s a look at
the projected starters across the league.
