The SEC is literally stockpiled with football talent. There are future NFL starters littering rosters all over the conference.
The question is...of all of these stars, which players will prove to be the best-of-the-best in 2011?
This projection is not like the Heisman race. It isn't necessarily the most popular players or the players from the best teams. It is a list of who, I believe, the most elite players in the conference are, regardless of the team's success.
The good thing for these guys is when you are considered one of the best in the SEC, you are considered among the best in the nation.
