The SEC is overflowing with top-notch talent. From bottom to top, there is little doubt that many of the best players in the nation choose to play ball in the Southeastern Conference.
As the 2010 season approaches, and depth charts begin to take shape, it's interesting to look at what the new batch of budding starters/role players could bring to the table next season.
However, it's important to note that these rankings won't weight the potential impact of incoming recruits as highly as it does the prospects who were there in 2009.
That may not sit well with some, but none of us can say for certain who will and who won't redshirt in 2010. Nor can we be 100 percent confident that the 5-star stud your particular team brought in on Feb. 3 will be just as studly once he hits the field—just keeping it real.
That being said, the following rankings are meant to state clearly—without prejudice—which teams are in the best position at QB, RB, LB, WR, D-Line, DB, O-Line,and ST's units. Nothing more. Nothing less.
