Chris Lee • 11/11/2021 in Football
SEC Offensive Player of the Year is still a two-man race, but Isaiah Spiller headlines a pack of movers below Matt Corral and Bryce Young.
Here's our list of the 14 leading candidates for the Southeastern Conference's Offensive Player of the Year award heading into Week 11.
1. Matt Corral, Ole Miss, QB: It's a virtual coin-flip with he and Bryce Young; it's Corral by a hair now after the way each played last week.
2. Bryce Young, Alabama, QB: Has accounted for more touchdowns (30 vs. 26) than Corral, but also more turnovers (5 vs. 3).
3. Isaiah Spiller, Texas AM, RB: His 1,055 yards from scrimmage rank second in the SEC; he's exceeded 100 yards from scrimmage seven times, with five coming vs . SEC teams.
4. Tyler Badie, Missouri, RB: So maybe a lot of production has come against lesser defenses, but 1,345 yards from scrimmage and 15 total TDs is loud.
5. KJ Jefferson, Arkansas, QB: Been consistent in leading his team to several big wins.
6. Treylon Burks, Arkansas, WR: Came up big (nine touches, 121 yards, one TD) in the win over Mississippi St.
7. Jameson Williams, Alabama, WR: 28 catches for 506 yards and four TDs in the last four games, which have come against LSU, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
8. Evan Neal, Alabama, LT: Hasn't graded poorly at Pro Football Focus in a game yet this season.
9. Charlie Cross, Mississippi St., LT: Starting to show up as a potential top-10 pick in next year's draft, and has played like it.
10. Hendon Hooker, Tennessee, QB: Accounted for 357 yards and four touchdowns on 31 plays in the win at Kentucky.
11. Will Rogers, Mississippi St., QB: If State had hit a field goal, he'd have been remembered for doing a terrific job on that last drive in Fayetteville.
12. Brian Robinson, Alabama, RB: It's been a nice season, but his stock's dipping as he's not been efficient as a runner (3.4 yards per carry on 58 attempts) in his last three games.
13. Devon Achane, Texas A&M, RB: Is he the fastest player in college football?
14. Brock Bowers, Georgia, TE: Statistical production has dropped lately, but that's easy to understand when the Bulldogs blow everyone out.
