As usual, the SEC will open the 2010 campaign will a clear favorite. The Crimson Tide has not lost a regular-season game since 2007 and is coming off their first national championship in 17 years. Even with nine starters departing on defense, they still head into the spring as the clear-cut favorite in the SEC. Our 2010 SEC football dream team is dominated by the Crimson Tide; however, several Georgia and Florida players were able to crack the roster. Here's who we'd pick for our 2010 SEC fantasy football team if we could get em:
QB: Ryan Mallett, Arkansas. Mallett lead the Razorbacks to an 8-5 record in 2009, while completing 55.8% of his passes for an impressive 3, 627 yards and 30 TDs. Mallett is widely considered a prototypical NFL prospect, which includes an imposing frame (6-7, 238lbs.).
RB: Mark Ingram, Alabama. Ingram won the Heisman Trophy in 2009, rushing for 1,658 yards and 17 touchdowns. The powerful, yet agile Ingram will look to win a national title in 2010 for the top-ranked Crimson Tide.
FB: Shaun Chapas, Georgia. At 6'3" and 238 lbs, Chapas could be the heart and soul of the Bulldogs this season. Finally, after many of the members of the Bulldogs famed 2006 recruiting class have jumped to the NFL, Chapas can shine.
WR: A.J. Green, Georgia. Green is arguably entering the 2010 season as the nations top WR. After compiling 58 receptions for 808 yards and 6 TDs, Green is considered a nightmare to deal with by every NCAA defensive coordinator and a dream for NFL scouts. Oh, did I mention that Green stands 6'4" and weighs in at 207lbs?
WR: Julio Jones, Alabama. Jones' 2009 campaign was nearly identical to A.J. Green. Jones amassed 43 receptions for 596 yards and 4 TDs. If Jones played for a pass-first offense, his production would be off the charts.
TE: Weslye Saunders, South Carolina. At 6'6" and 273lbs, Saunders is an apposing figure on the football field. Most surprisingly of all, Saunders is an equally good receiver as a mauling blocker. The potential first-round pick hauled in 60 receptions for 718 yards and 6 touchdowns last season.
OL: OT - DeMarcus Love, Arkansas
G - Clint Boling, Georgia
C - Mike Pouncey, Florida
G - Jarriel King, South Carolina
OT - Marcus Gilbert, Florida
CB: Chris Culliver, South Carolina. Culliver is a big, physical corner that excels in tackling and filling gaps at the point of attack. Over the past two seasons, Culliver has recorded 122 tackles in 24 starts.
CB: Vance Cuff, Georgia. This speedster ran a confirmed 40-yard dash of 4.24 seconds during spring practice. Cuff will be fun to watch this season.
FS: Anthony Leon, Arkansas. At 6'4" and 227lbs, Leon is an abnormally large for the FS position. Leon is expected to be one of the most improved players in 2010 and should begin to dominate the secondary.
SS: Ahmad Black, Florida. Black is quickly becoming known as an all around safety. He has demonstrated that he can cover fast wide receivers, is strong in run support and is a very good athlete. Black should be a force this year in the SEC.
LB: Ronell Lewis, Oklahoma. Look for Lewis to grow into his large frame this season and dominate the line of scrimmage.
ILB: Kelvin Sheppard, LSU. At 6'3" and 240 lbs, Sheppard has the ideal size to play middle linebacker in both college and the NFL. Last season, Sheppard led the Tigers with 110 tackles and 8.5 tackles for loss. Expect his production to at least match his 2009 campaign.
LB: Chris Walker, Tennessee. After battling injuries for most of the 2009 season, Walker finally showed that he had the ability to make the big plays. Last season, Walker lead Tennessee in sacks, tackles for a loss and was second in interceptions. If he remains healthy, offensive coordinators in the SEC will have nightmares the week leading up to their matchup with Tennessee.
DL: DE - Cliff Matthews, South Carolina
DT - Drake Nevis, LSU
DT - Lawrence Marsh, Florida
DE - Marcell Dareus, Alabama
