Alabama's quarterback leads a talented field of candidates; here's how we rank the rest.
Here's how we rank the 14 best offensive players in the Southeastern Conference this year.
1. Bryce Young, QB, Alabama: Won the Heisman Trophy while accounting for 50 touchdowns vs. just 10 turnovers.
2. Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss: The Rebels' seven points in the Sugar Bowl showed how much Corral meant to that offense.
3. Tyler Badie, RB, Missouri: 322 touches for 1.942 yards and 18 TDs; had five 200-yard rushing games this season and never fumbled.
4. Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama: 1,595 yards from scrimmage and 15 touchdowns, and was clearly the league's most explosive wideout in a year full of good ones.
5. Will Rogers, QB, Mississippi St.: His last two games weren't good, but let's not forget how he carried the Bulldogs to wins over Auburn, Kentucky and Texas A&M.
6. KJ Jefferson, QB, Arkansas: Averaged 9.1 yards per pass and 4.5 per rush, accounting for 27 touchdowns and only six turnovers.
7. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas: It's really a toss-up as to whether he or Jefferson was the offense's best player given how often Burks came up big at important times.
8. Stetson Bennett IV, QB, Georgia: He not only was the Offensive MVP of the national title game, but his 9.4 yards per play between rushing and passing was over a yard and a half better than every other quarterback on this list.
9. Brian Robinson Jr., RB, Alabama: 1,688 yards from scrimmage and 16 TDs; had over 100 yards from scrimmage in eight games, including 204 yards rushing in CFB semifinal vs. Cincinnati.
10. Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee: Had 3,565 yards of total offense with 36 TDs vs. eight turnovers, and he didn't even start two games.
11. Evan Neal, LT, Alabama: Protected Young's blindside quite well all season; should be a high-first-rounder in the upcoming NFL Draft.
12. Wan'Dale Robinson, WR, Kentucky: 1,445 yards from scrimmage and seven TDs; had 10 catches for 170 yards in bowl win vs. Iowa.
13. Chris Rodriguez Jr., RB, Kentucky: 1,439 yards from scrimmage and 13 TDs; had nine 100-yard rushing games.
14. Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia: 938 yards from scrimmage and 14 TDs while showing special big-play ability.
HONORABLE MENTION: Isaiah Spiller, RB, TAMU; Devon Achane, RB, TAMU; Charlie Cross, LT, Mississippi St.; Darian Kinnard, RT, Kentucky; Kenyon Green, OL, TAMU; Tank Bigsby, RB, Auburn; Tyrion Davis-Price, RB, LSU; Dontarrio Drummond, WR, Ole Miss; John Metchie III, WR, Alabama; Makai Polk, WR, Mississippi St.; Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee; Michael Maetti, C, Missouri.
