Thought this could be a good topic. Would love to hear some input. Some names that come to mind in no order
Barrett Jones-Bama Returning Outland Winner
Tyrann Mathieu-LSU Heisman finalist
Lotof talent in this league, give me some names I left off. Not familiar with TAMU, or MU rosters enough.

I hate l.s u. but Eric Reid is top 10 in my opinion ..rtr
Going to be interesting to see how well davis and lattimore bounce back from serious injuries
Homer pick- AJ McCarron
Had a great season and played his best on the biggest stage.
Reese Dismukes started as a freshman should be much improved next year. Agree 100% on Eric Reid.

A healthy Tyler Bray would have to be in the discussion IMO. Good list, though
Spencer Ware and Eddy Lacey IMO
QB -- Murray, UGA
RB -- Lattimore, USCe
Wr -- Justin Hunter, UT
Wr -- Malcolm Mitchell, UGA
Wr -- Da'Rick Rogers, UT
TE -- Florida's best guy
LT -- Chris Faulk, LSU
C -- Barrett Jones, Bama
RG -- Zach Fulton, UT
RT -- DJ Fluker, Bama
I'd throw Chance Warmack's name out there for left guard.
Agreed. He is rated by a few services as the top guard in the draft next year.
A few more names
Zack Stacy from Vandy is an underrated rb
Tre Mason (Aub) probably gonna have a nice yr
Easley (UF) if healthy
i do think that Bray has a chance to be special this year if all his players stay heatlhy
Seriously, I mean it, no flame: what's the deal with Easley? He had like 2 sacks last year and was generally known for being explosive on and off the field and being out of place a lot.
If I have to name 10:
Note: leaving off Lattimore and Davis because of injuries, but if they are close to 100%, they're in. Just don't know.
B. Jones- Bama
C. Warmack- Bama
E. Lacey- Bama
AJ McCarron- Bama
T. Mathieu- LSU
E. Reid- LSU
S. Montgomery- LSU
O. Beckham- LSU
T. Wilson- Arkansas
J. Jones- UGA
Bama and LSU are still a lot more talented than the rest of the league, IMO.
Lutz (Aub) is top 10 if he plays a major role.
J. Hunter and T. Bray (Tenn) are hard to leave off.
Shaw at USCe could be by the end of the season.
3 DL at UF are in consideration as well.
Note: I didn't forget Murray. Not impressed.
Agreed I just don't see it in Aaron Murray. Dude can't look off DB's or progress through reads.
Honey Badger - LSU
Sam Montgomery - LSU
Marcus Lattimore - USCe
Jadeveon Clowney - USCe
Tyler Wilson - Arky
Jarvis Jones - UGA
Matt Elam - UF
Barret Jones - Bama
Justin Hunter - UT
Nic Brassel - Ole Miss
It's hard to limit it to just ten guys. Those up top are who I think will be the most productive at their positions if healthy. There are 10-15 more on the same or very similar level, all of whom could be just as productive. It's hard to put guys who aren't comnpletely proven yet, even though we all know they'll blow up soon. For instance..
CJ Mosley - Bama
O. Beckham - LSU
Sharrif Floyd - UF
John Jenkins - UGA
Eric Reid - LSU
Warren Norman - Vandy
Those aren't even necessarily the next group, just guys who will have huge years. Of course guys like Eddie Lacy, Darick Rogers, Spencer Ware, Malcolm Mitchell, Dom Easley, are all going to be good and continue to get better as they age.
Bottom line. Tons of great players in the SEC and who the top 20ish are, is subjective. The league is loaded with great players next year, especially on defense and at RB.. Davis, lattimore, Crowell, Ware, Hilliard, Lacy, Norman, and A&M and Miss States RB's, whoever they are..
I'm more curious to see which young players make big impacts.. Either freshmen, RS freshmen, or young new starters. I thought Malcolm Mitchell and O. Beckam were two of the most impressive freshmen in the SEC last year.
yall are forgetting the top returning corner in jonathan banks. then miss state also has the top returning tackler in cam lawerence. also nickoe whitley who had 4 ints but missed alot of games because of a torn achelles tendon. miss state has alot of talent coming back in 2012 and we should have a top 3 or 4 defense.

i at nick brassell. he may not even be back next year because of grades. he never went to class
Good list. Justin Hunter, Da'rick Rogers, Cord Patterson, Tyler Bray. That's impressive now that I think about it. What does UTk have RB/OL wise because their QB/WR lineup looks good on paper.
Our dline was/has been under appreciated due to inconsistent lb play and depth.
I dont look at sacks as much with a dt, although more would be great, but I focus more on disruption
Our defense was on the field the whole gm at times
Easley should be moved around more (from de to dt)
I agree the kid needs to grow up
Good discussion. Really like Eric Reid and completely whiffed on him, Bray will be a good one too. Lot of talent in the league.
WR-Justin Hunter-UT (love this kid)
WR-Chad Bumphis-MSU (another guy I left off)
LB- CJ Mosley-Bama
LB-Nico Johnson-Bama (supremely underrated)
K-????Not from Bama
ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY nothing. Their running game was bottom 5 in all of D1 last year, and it isn't getting any better.
Clowney didn't impress me last season. He has to play every play and be more consistant. I would go with Square and Williams at Bama over him as well as taking Lemonier at Auburn before him as well. Mingo for sure as well.
It will be interesting to see if Clowney progresses any in year 2.
Dang I forgot about Mingo. Kid is a player and would replace Clowney on my starting lineup for sure. I like Lemonier,but not as much as Clowney or Mingo. UT has a killer WR corps. Wish Bama had Hunter and Rogers. Don't love Bray.
Sheesh. They have so much talent skill -ise at WR and a really good QB. They have to be better next year though, I would think. Maybe not
