This story appears in ESPN College Football 2016, on newsstands now. Order online today!Leonard Fournette?and?Myles Garrett?dont need to fend off any preseason challengers.But not everybody has the same job security as Fournette, LSUs star running back, and Texas A&Ms all-world pass-rusher, Garrett.Heres the biggest position battle for all 14 SEC teams, presented in order of projected finish.East DivisionTennessee Volunteers: Left tackle?Longtime starter Kyler Kerbyson is gone, and RT Chance Hall missed the spring with an injury, so Brett Kendrick shifted to his spot. That leaves redshirt freshman Drew Richmond to battle senior Dontavius Blair on the left. Richmond could be the future at this position, but hell have to adjust after moving from the right side.Georgia Bulldogs: Quarterback?Pick your poison, Georgia. Graduate transfer and returning starter Greyson Lambert struggled deep into SEC play, averaging just 164.3 pass yards per game. Junior Brice Ramsey, the early 2015 favorite, punted almost as much as he threw last season. True freshman Jacob Eason, the top-ranked prep QB in 2016, is clearly the future of the position but has yet to take a collegiate snap. Although Eason boasts the purest talent of the trio, the Bulldogs staff has said it wants to bring him along carefully. So many options ... so little clarity.Florida Gators: Quarterback?There will be pressure until a Gators QB finally proves he can consistently throw against SEC opponents. Former starter Treon Harris moved to receiver, then was suspended in the spring, so Luke Del Rio, who walked on last year, is the favorite. Still, Del Rio failed to establish himself in stints at Alabama and Oregon State, which leaves room for Purdue graduate transfer Austin Appleby and true freshmen Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask to enter the race.South Carolina Gamecocks: Quarterback?New OC Kurt Roper wants to run an up-tempo spread, so mobility under center will be critical. While a trio of QBs who logged starts in 2015 return (Perry Orth, Lorenzo Nunez, Connor Mitch), true freshman and 2016 ESPN 300 dual-threat Brandon McIlwain may be best suited to run Ropers O in the long run.Missouri Tigers: Offensive line?New faces, redshirts and backups abound. Down four starters with nearly 130 career starts, the O-line returns only a couple of semi-familiar names in Nate Crawford and Alec Abeln, who combined for 11 starts last season. Both tackles will start from scratch, while a couple of sophomores, OT Paul Adams and G Kevin Pendleton, got some work toward the end of the season and could man the right side.Kentucky Wildcats: Linebacker?The Wildcats lose six of their top seven tacklers from 2015, including, most critically, LB Josh Forrest. The unit was dealt an additional blow with the offseason dismissal of Jason Hatcher (marijuana trafficking), so Kentucky will depend on a pair of Big Ten transfers -- Courtney Love from Nebraska and DeNiro Laster from Minnesota -- to fill the hole in the defenses depleted middle.Vanderbilt Commodores: Safety?Derek Masons D relies heavily on its safeties ability to play both in the back end and in the box. With Andrew Williamson gone, junior Oren Burks needs help at the other spot. Theres depth (Ryan White, Emmanuel Smith and Arnold Tarpley return), and frosh Joejuan Williams, Vandys lone 2016 ESPN 300 prep, enrolled early and will vie for playing time from Day 1.West DivisionLSU Tigers: Quarterback?For the third time in as many years, Brandon Harris will compete for QB1. (He served as backup in 2014 before being named starter last season.) Harris, a junior, had a solid first half in 2015, playing to a 78.2 QBR through Week 7, only to throw three TDs and five picks in November. The dual-threat QB will face off against a dropback passer, Purdue transfer Danny Etling, to try to kick-start an aerial attack that ranked No. 105 in the FBS (180.4 yards per game).Alabama Crimson Tide: Quarterback?Count the Tide as yet another SEC team with a question mark at QB. Junior Cooper Bateman lost the starting job to Jake Coker last season, and this year, Bateman must fend off redshirt freshman Blake Barnett and sophomore David Cornwell for the gig. No matter which pro-style passer gets tabbed, hell be Lane Kiffins third straight first-time starter in Tuscaloosa.Ole Miss Rebels: Offensive line?All five starters who lined up in the trenches for the Rebels Sugar Bowl victory in January are gone. The arrival of five-star signee OT Gregory Little, the second-ranked prep in the 2016 ESPN 300, certainly helps, but potential starters Rod Taylor and Robert Conyers are the only Ole Miss veterans along the O-line (12 combined career starts). A handful of other linemen (Javon Patterson, Jordan Sims, Sean Rawlings) have some starting reps, but the front line is in major rebuilding mode.Texas A&M Aggies: Running back?The quarterback saga in College Station is compelling, and certainly critical, but finding Tra Carsons heir apparent at running back will also be vital this fall. Carson was the first 1,000-yard rusher in the Sumlin era, and though the Aggies have a host of backfield options, the units leading veteran is now junior James White, who ran for just 196 yards last season. Look for Oklahoma transfer Keith Ford and three other backs to push for touches.Mississippi State Bulldogs: Quarterback?Dak Prescott owns every Mississippi State career passing record, so good luck to his successor. In the spring, Mullen rotated four QBs with the first team, all of whom are promising, if inexperienced. Sophomore Nick Fitzgerald went 11-of-14 for 235 yards and three TDs in eight games last season. Damian Williams and Elijah Staley: 75 career attempts combined. Nick Tiano? Freshman. As Mullen said, this ones wide open.Auburn Tigers: Quarterback?Jeremy Johnson earned preseason Heisman chatter in 2015 -- then tossed six INTs in the Tigers first three games. Sean White took over and wasnt much better, throwing for one TD in seven outings. The two are in the mix for starter again, with juco transfer John Franklin III as a dual-threat option.Arkansas Razorbacks: Offensive line?Former starting quarterback Brandon Allens younger brother, Austin, will inherit the QB reins, but the question now is who will protect him. RT Dan Skipper and C Frank Ragnow return, but the Hogs are otherwise inexperienced. Among potential starters: redshirt freshman Colton Jackson and converted defensive lineman Hjalte Froholdt. Authentic Eagles Hoodies . Booth picked up 65 caps after making her national team debut in 2002 at the age of 17. She most recently played for Sky Blue FC of the National Womens Soccer League. "It just felt like it was my time to move on," she said in a phone interview from her hometown of Burlington, Ont. Wholesale Eagles Hoodies . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. http://www.cheapeagleshoodiesjerseys.com/avonte-maddox-hoodie/ . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. Jason Kelce Hoodie . LOUIS -- Attorneys for the St. Eagles Hoodies Shop . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night.Our hit and miss list of the 2015 NFL Draft created plenty of debate, with some feeling we were a little unfair not to put Marcus Peters (8 INT) on the list, as well as not giving Nelson Aghlohor his due as the NFLs biggest first-round miss. Its about looking forward not back, so the View From America has his Top 10 non-first round rookies for 2015... 1) Tyler Lockett (3rd round, Seattle) Tyler Lockett logged over 1,000 yards and 2 TDs in combined punt and kick returns There wasnt a bigger playmaker for the Seahawks last season, as Lockett emerged not only as one of the nastiest receiving threats in the country (664 yards, 6 TDs), but also logging over 1,000 yards and 2 TDs in combined punt and kick returns. He was named an All-Pro in his first season. Mind you, those who know anything about college football would have raised their eyebrows that he wasnt taken earlier than the third round, too. 2) Thomas Rawls (undrafted, Seattle)Two of Pete Carrolls biggest successes from the 2015 Draft were Lockett and Rawls. Rawls - who had 830 yards, 4 TDs and led the league with 5.6 yards per rushing attempt - was sensational in picking up where Marshawn Lynch left. Theres a new beast in town, people.3) Stefon Diggs (5th round, Minnesota) Wide receiver Stefon Diggs has been quite a find for the Vikings 720 yards, 4 TDs, - including a red-hot start to the year, where he had 95+ yards in four straight games. After corners and safeties began to stop him, the production waned, but he was still a remarkable threat. He was taken in the 5th round pick, but produced more than a lot of first rounders.4) Ronald Darby (2nd round, Buffalo) Ronald Darby has starred at cornerback for the Bills Darby - who was a star at Florida State - had a heck of a year at cornerback for the Bills, with 21 passes defended (5th best in the NFL) and made 68 tackles. He had 2 interceptions (2nd on the team), too. The worrying thing for opposition quarterbacks is that hell only get better. Darby Island, anybody? 2015 Draft: Hits & Misses Who were 2015s draft success stories 5) Lael Collins (undrafted, Dallas)Listen, we know why he wasnt drafted [there was a shooting in New Orleans for which he was not a suspect but he was questioned by police on the eve of the draft], and when Jerry Jones finally took him on, Collins - who was expected to be a first rounder - started 11 games for Dallas at offensive tackle, and looks an easy part of the best offensive line in the NFL.6) Devin Funchess (2nd round, Carolina) Cam Newwton celebrates a TD with Devin Funchess A lot of people used the words overweight to describe the receiver, and looked at the NFL Combine as a reason why the former Michigan man was not a first rounder.dddddddddddd But Carolina knew that he had first round hands, and 473 yards - the fifth best for a rookie in the history of the Panthers - and 5 TDs later, he became one of Cam Newtons prime receivers en route to a Super Bowl.7) Haouli Kikaha (2nd round, New Orleans) Hauoli Kikaha of the New Orleans Saints put up some great numbers in his rookie season We nearly put in Malcolm Brown, the Patriots nose tackle out of Alabama, but looking at it, Kikaha was pretty immense - especially considering the terrible defence he had to play with week in, week out. The defensive ends numbers - 52 tackles, 4 sacks and 4 forced fumbles - were great. His forced fumbles number ranked amongst the best in the league.8) Landon Collins (2nd round, New York Giants)The first pick of the 2nd round was blistering in his hard-hitting tackling….exactly what he was like at Alabama. Collins had 80 tackles and started all 16 games for the New York Giants who - on reflection - werent that far away from making a play-off game. Mind you, thats how bad the NFC East was! Making sense of the Combine What is the NFL Combine all about? 9) T.J. Yeldon (2nd round, Jacksonville Jaguars) We remember how good Yeldon was at Alabama, and we were hoping for the same in Jacksonville, where he was drafted. He was quick, elusive and scary fast playing against some of the best defences in the country in the SEC, but the NFL guys obviously didnt think he was as good as a Todd Gurley and, er, Melvin Gordon. Yeldon immediately became the Jags starting running back, and put up 742 yards with 2 TDs. With a better offensive line, we think he could have run for 1,000.10) Jamison Crowder (4th round, Washington) - 600 yards, 2 TDs Anyone who plays for Dukes football team isnt exactly going to be the biggest name on the draft, so it was hardly surprising that Crowder was picked in the latter rounds. But to say he proved himself was an understatement, as he grabbed 600 yards receiving and 2 TDs on 59 receptions. Certain teams in the NFC East would have loved a rookie with those stats.Purposely left out: Kwon Alexander (2nd round, Tampa Bay Buccaneers) Lets not get it wrong: Alexanders 93 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions were exceptionally impressive. He was on track for over 100 tackles and maybe more sacks and interceptions, until he was handed a four-game suspension for using performance enhancing drugs. Alexander was suspended for the last three games of the season and will be out for the 2017 season opener. And you might say that his actions cost the team a wild card place, too (The Bucs finished 0-3 in his absence). Anyway, lets hope he learns, because hes one talented kid.
