From a touted freshman quarterback and a veteran signal-caller determined to make the most of his second opportunity to players emerging from the shadow of stars and another one poised to be a top-five pick in next year’s draft, SEC football is full of new starters ready to take their swings at stardom.
Yes, the league still has plenty of firepower with guys like LSU running back Leonard Fournette, Georgia running back Nick Chubb, Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett and Alabama receiver Calvin Ridley. But there are some new guys who should make their marks in 2016.
Will Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason live up to the massive hype surrounding him? How excited are you to see Alabama pass-rushing monster Tim Williams wreak havoc before bolting Tuscaloosa for a big NFL payday?
The answers to those questions are some of the reasons why we’re so excited about college football season starting.
Obviously, not everybody can be included, and there are even some assumptions being made about whether or not some of these guys will even start. Still, the conference is full of players whose names you may not know now but will soon enough.
That’s what makes the SEC so great; it just reloads with top-tier talent.
So, taking into consideration performances in limited action, past successes of players in their systems and sheer star power, let’s take a look at some of the new guys ready to take their places in the spotlight.
As always, tell us who you think should be on this list to make noise once they leave the sideline.
