The 2012 regular season in the SEC might as well be deemed "the year of the freshmen."
How is it possible that a back like Jeremy Hill, who gained 631 total yards and 10 rushing touchdowns, did not make the All-SEC Freshmen Team?
Well, when there's freshman running backs like Todd Gurley and T.J. Yeldon in the league, it's hard to make an argument that Hill deserved to occupy one of those two spots. Add in the fact that a freshman quarterback named Johnny Manziel won the Heisman Trophy, and "the year of the freshmen" moniker is certainly validated.
So now with the 2012 regular season all in the books, it's time to look to the future and predict which of these breakout freshmen will become breakout stars in the SEC.
