    Offensive Stars
    QB: Jalen Whitlow has a lot to live up to this season as the new face of Kentucky Football. He is the leader of the team and is expected to do big things this upcoming season. Lets see if he can get the job done and take home the hardware at the end of the season.
    HB(s): Raymond Sanders and Jonathan George is a duo to watch. They will be lighting up teams this upcoming season. With Georges Power and Sanders Speed, it will be very hard to bring these two down, especially in open field.
    WR(s): Demarco Robinson and Rashad Cunningham will be Whitlow's two favorite targets this season. Cunningham at 6'4 will be a nightmare for opposing teams. With his height and quickness, it will be very hard to stop him. Robinson is Robinson, he's short and has the hands and route running skills of Wes Welker. Watch out for him to make noise too.

    Defensive Stars
    DE(s): Za'Darius Smith and Alvin Dupree will be our two DE's.
    DT(s): We are are making a change tot he 3-4 this season so Cobble and Rumph will be sharing time on the field alternating. Cobble is a 86 overall and Rumph is a 85 so both are def going to be making noise in the backfield.
    LB(s): On the outside, we got Khalid Henderson and Impact Player Miles Simpson. Inside LB's will be Senior Avery Williamson and Junior Tyler Brause
    DB(s):2 starting CB's will be Cody Quinn and Jd Harmon. At FS, Ashely Lowery will be starting and at SS, Glenn Faulkner. Watch out these boys. Not too many passes get completed on them so if you do, consider yourself lucky ;)

    Arkansas Razorbacks 2013 Football Preview
    [​IMG]
    OFFENSE
    On offense Arkansas loses many contributors from a year ago. QB Tyler Wilson, WR Cobi Hamilton, TE Chris Gragg, and 3 running backs all are gone. But coming into 2013 Arkansas has a stable of young running backs which features Sophomore Jonathan Williams and 5-star recruit Alex Collins. The big question marks come up at the quarterback position and at the receiver position. Brandon Allen becomes the starter after a solid spring, and a senior driven receiving core looks to provide consistency in the passing game. The problem is most of these seniors haven't been very productive in recent years and Brandon Allen will lean heavily on them this year. The o-line should be improved with senior Travis Swanson starting for his 4th consecutive year at center, and a mix of young and veteran talent across the board. This offense will look to run the ball a little more than they have in the past but still should be a very balanced attack.​
    DEFENSE
    The Arkansas defense a year ago was pretty bad, but some players showed flashes of talent and with a great new coaching staff in place, this defense should drastically improve. The strength of this unit will be up front. Chris Smith and Trey Flowers pose as two of the best pass rushers in the SEC as well as veterans Byran Jones and Robert Thomas manning the middle. The defensive front also has great depth and will be able to sub in multiple guys and keep everybody fresh. The secondary should improve with junior Tevin Mitchel at corner as well as sophomore Will Hines at the other corner spots. Both started were starters last year. Senior Eric Bennett returns at SS while sophomore Rohan Gaines makes his first start at FS. The weakest part of this defense will come at linebacker. Sophomores Otha Peters and AJ Turner started multiple games in 2012 and both showed promise. The problem is depth. A lot of inexperience at linebacker will hurt this defensive unit as a whole.​
    SPECIAL TEAMS
    Zach Hocker returns at kicker for the 4th straight year, and some say he could be the best kicker in the SEC. Last year he struggled but given the circumstances, not too many are worried about him having a similar year. He kicked very well in spring and might even punt for the Razorbacks in the fall. Arkansas loses arguably their best kick returner in school history in Dennis Johnson, but speedy sophomore Nate Holmes could be the next great returner for the Hogs. He is possibly one of the fastest players in the SEC and if he gets a crease, he's taking it to the endzone. Teams should probably stay away from kicking it to him as much as possible.​

    Ole Miss behind a strong recruiting class, looks to establish themselves as a contender in the SEC West. After two straight years of misery, Ole Miss had a solid 7-6 season in 2012 after an incredibly tough schedule. Returning all 11 starters on defense from a year ago and 9 on offense, combined with a recruiting class that turned heads, the Rebels look like a program on the rise. Newly appointed coach Keith Stone will be bringing in an exciting Air Raid offense and plans on improving a defense that allowed 27.6 ppg a year ago. Stone is a product of Leach/Holgerson coaching tree starting in 1999 at Oklahoma as a graduate assistant on Leach's staff.


    Offense:


    Qb- Bo Wallace Jr. - Wallace threw for nearly 3,000 yards in 2012 and really picked it up late in the season. The downfall is this will be the third different system he has played in, in the last 3 years. Wallace had a strong spring and has the eyes of the Maxwell voters being named on the 76 players on the preseason watchlist.

    Rb- Jeff Scott Sr.- Scott is a perfect fit for coach Stone's air raid offense, and should shine bright on a team that passes to setup the run. Look for Scott to eclipse the 1,000 yard mark, after finishing with 846 yards last season.

    Wr/TE- A Big talented group of Wr lead by Jr Donte Moncrief will be a strong part of the Rebel offense in 2013. While none of them are blazing fast, they make up for it in route running and size. Also true freshman TE Christian Morgan is a great asset in the passing game with great hands.

    OL- Emmanuel McCray- the best OL to come through Oxford since Michael Oher and best pro prospect, leads a strong offensive line into 2013. Protecting the blindside will be no problem for McCray who was named a team captain in the spring.

    DL- Following his brother to Ole Miss is Robert Nkemiche, labeled by many to be the best prospect in the nation a year ago, he shores up a rather average DL.

    LB- Denzel Nkemiche (Soph) is gaining national attention already, being named to the Bronko Nagurski watchlist. Sr MLB Mike Marry was named defensive captain and coaches were raving about him in the spring.

    DB- Definitely the weak part of the team, but look out for FS Trae Elston hearing a lot of good things about the sophomore.

    Special Teams- Returning a senior at kicker and punter Rebels should be strong in the kicking game this year.

    Overall Ole Miss does have the opportunity to turn some heads this year as long as they can get some production from their defense. Bad secondary play with a subpar pass rush could bite the Rebels in 2013, but an excellent offense and a couple big playmakers on defense should make this team an interesting team to watch. Over-under in wins would be 7 anything less could spell trouble for Stone, but with a tough schedule anything more is unlikely.

    Texas A&M Aggies 2013 Football Preview
    [​IMG]
    OFFENSE
    After a sensational heisman winning 2012 season, Johnny Football returns with a slew of playmakers. The rushing attack will be led by the two headed monster of senior Ben Malena and Oklahoma transfer Brandon Williams. Mike Evans returns to lead the very young but talented receiving core. Manziel should have more than enough weapons to replicate his success. Coach Sumlin has said his air-raid attack will be a little more balanced this year. The offensive line loses first round pick Luke Joekel, but senior Jake Matthews has moved over from his normal position, right tackle, to replace him. All in all the offense should be very explosive and dangerous in the SEC. A&M will not have the element of suprise like it did last year however. Opposing SEC defenses will be ready.

    DEFENSE
    The Aggies defense a year ago was a pleasant surprise. The front seven especially held their own against some stiff competition. The secondary will be the weakness this year as well. The Aggies will look to have a more aggressive attack on defense to help their unexperienced secondary. The defensive line will be anchored by Senior Kirby Ellis. Returning playmaker Steven Jenkins leads the linebacker corps. Junior Deshazor Everett is a physical corner that should help in some matchups. Look for true freshman Kameron Miles to contribute in the secondary as well. The defense doesn't need to be dominant, but as long as it can slow teams down, Johnny Manziel and co should handle the rest.
