The Baylor Bears had a tough time in the 2017 season, but freshman quarterback Charlie Brewer provided a few bright spots.
With Brewer returning, the Bears have hope. In fact, according to Pro Football Focus, they have the conference’s leader in adjusted completion percentage.

Adjusted completion percentage factors in dropped passes, throwaways, spiked passes, batted passes, and QB hits.
Brewer’s non-adjusted percentage was 68.1 percent. With all the things Brewer had to work through factored in, his adjusted completion percentage was 76.5 percent.
Brewer threw for 1,562 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2017. Perhaps more important than the touchdowns was Brewer’s low amount of interceptions. He only threw four during his first season on campus.
Baylor is still a rebuilding team, but with Brewer as their cornerstone, they’ll have a solid rock to build upon.
