The SEC is the premier conference in college football and prides itself on physical play. The key to winning the SEC is controlling the line of scrimmage with great offensive and defensive lines. SEC coaches acquire the proper personnel to build great trench units via the recruiting trail.
Some programs in different conferences prefer their linemen to be smaller, quicker and more agile. However, SEC programs love their trench prospects to possess excellent size, strength and power. Several recruits have a great chance to be dominant in the trenches at the next level, but only a select few appear to be capable of dominating the trenches in the SEC.
A big offensive tackle in Louisiana not only has the size, but also displays the quickness to rule the league. A defensive end in Illinois may not be from SEC country, but he displays the skills needed to hold his own. Ole Miss has a commitment from a blocker who could be the next great right tackle from the SEC, and an explosive defensive end from Georgia has the skills to be a defensive player of the year.
