Though the SEC's biggest and brightest stars are normally defined by speed, some players around the league gained superstar status without it.
Some players like quarterback Zach Mettenberger rely on other bodily functions to make plays in the SEC such as his arm, while others use brute power and technique to make a name for themselves.

So who became a star in college football's biggest conference without top-notch speed? Take a peak inside.
