Every year the SEC reloads the talent pool that has kept the conference at the top of college football for the past decade. With the influx of new talent comes a few breakout stars, and last season was no different.
There were six breakout players last season who surpassed the expectations placed in front of them, and this year the challenge will be to repeat the production that occurred in 2012.
These players were able to hide from the spotlight for most of last season, but heading into the new year they will be marked men. This season is a proving ground for these six guys as they attempt to continue the climb to elite status inside the SEC.
