Top 10 WR's in the SEC

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

We all know that the SEC is a passing game which means that WR's are some of the most important players on the field. Without further ado, here are the top 10 WR's in the SEC. 

10. Terry Godwin-UGA- I had to get 1 Dawg on this list and Godwin has so much potential because now that McKenzie is gone and Eason will develop, Godwin should be the top WR. 

9. Trent Sherfield- Vanderbilt- Sherfield had a great season in 2015 but disappointed in 2016. He has the perfect combo of size and speed. As Kyle Shurmur becomes more experienced Sherfield will have a better season. 

8. Jeff Badet- Badet is a very good WR and can guide a young QB whoever it is. 

7. Jauan Jennings- Tenn- UGA's ultimate villain ends up at 8 because while he has great hands and NFL-like size, he does not always catch his passes. 

6. Donald Gray-MSST- Gray works perfectly in this revamped Mississippi St offense at 5'10 because he can catch and run.

5. Deebo Samuel-SC- Samuel is going to play the same role that Isaiah McKenzie played for UGA as the exciting little guy who can make plays all over the field. 

4. Calvin Ridley- Alabama- Ridley disappointed in his sophomore season as Alabama centered it's offense around Jalen Hurts, their 3 backs, and ArDarius Stewart. As Stewart is going to the draft Ridley should go back to being the top pass catcher in Tuscaloosa. 

3. Antonio Callway- Florida- Like most of the WR's here Callaway makes the QB better with his pass catching. 

2. J'Mon Moore-Mizzou- Moore and Drew Lock will create a QB-WR combo for the ages. Moore can get any ball in the air and also has big time speed. 

1. Christian Kirk- TAMU- Kirk has big time speed and will be the go to guy for Jake Hubenak this season. 

Top 10 RB's in the SEC

10. Damarea Crockett-Mizzou- Crockett is one of the many freshmen who impressed this season, rushing for over 1,000 yds and had 10 TD's. The only downside is Mizzou's weak O-Line. 

9. Traeveon Williams-TAMU- Williams has better O-Line members to work with and a worse QB situation (which will lead to more carries) than Crockett which is why he is #9. 

8. Sony Michel-UGA- Michel will be working with a better O-Line which will give him big time stats in his final season. 

7. Bo Scarborough-Alabama- Scarborough is coming off an injury but really impressed in his last 3 games. It will be interesting to see what he can do with an O-line that will have a slight drop-off than last year. 

6. Boom Williams-Kentucky- Williams is part of the dynamic 1-2 punch at Kentucky with running mate Benny Snell who did not make the list. He has the perfect combo of speed and power. 

5. Nick Chubb-UGA- Chubb had a disappointing season coming off his ACL tear. With new OT's coming in he should be better for his big senior year. 

4. Rawleigh Williams III-Arkansas- Williams had a big sophomore year even with a struggling O-Line. He will look to do bigger things in his Junior year. 

3. Kamryn Pettaway-Auburn- The power back made a living off of running through tacklers as a sophomore and he should follow up with an even better junior year. 

2. Ralph Webb-Vanderbilt- Webb made the big decision to come back for his senior year to see how good could Vandy be. With him he should threaten to lead the SEC in yds and get Vandy to possibly the SEC championship game. 

1. Derrius Guice- The backup for Leonard Fournette was very Chubb-esque in his emergence at LSU. After the star went down he burst onto the scene and went off. The top spot is his to lose. 

Top 10 QB's in the SEC

I decided to take a break from scouting reports and go onto position rankings. I will do QB's RB's WR's LB's and CB's. Without further ado, the top 10 SEC QB's.

10. Jared Stidham- Auburn: The only reason he is 10 right now is because he has not gained the starting job yet. If he does then it will sky rocket. 

9. Brandon Harris: As with Stidham I cannot rank a QB high if he does not have the job even if he is a shoe in for it. If he does land the job he will go up 1 spot possibly. 

8. Jake Bentley-SC: The Gamecock QB will not have his weapons which will not help him in his sophomore year

7. Jacob Eason-UGA:As a UGA fan it pains me but I must remain unbiased. Eason has a great arm and great accuracy downfield, but he cannot get on the same page with his wide receivers and he misses open guys way too often. 

6. Kyle Shurmur-Vandy: Shurmur, like Eason, has a strong arm and the year of experience really helped him so next year around this time expect Eason to be here or higher. 

5. Shea Patterson- Ole Miss: The dual threat QB is very good at escaping the pocket and was great in his one showing. I expect good things out of him this year. 

4. Austin Allen-Arkansas: This is Allen's last ride and I think he will make the most of it, most of his talent is coming back next year and he just has to stay upright and not on the ground. 

3. Nick Fitzgerald-MSST:you could make a claim that he is one of the best RB's but he does play QB. He was 2nd in the SEC in rushing which is very impressive. He will continue to run but I do hope he develops a passing game as well. 

2. Drew Lock-Mizzou: Even though he plays on a terrible team his success cannot go unlooked. Lock was amazing in his sophomore year passing for 3400 yds, 23 TD's and only 10 picks. He will only get better in his big Jr. year. 

1. Jalen Hurts-Alabama: Hurts led the Tide to the final game this year and he will only get better as a sophomore. He truly is a dual threat QB with a big frame, breakaway speed, and great awareness in the pocket.
