Here's how we rank the SEC's best 14 offensive players heading into Week Seven.
1. Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss: The Rebels are throwing less this year, but Corral's efficiencies (10.3 yards per throw, no picks, 4.4 per rush) along with ability to put points on the board (12 TD passes, eight rushing scores) have him atop the list after placing second a week ago.
2. Bryce Young, QB, Alabama: Threw for 369 yards, three TDs and a pick in the loss at A&M.
3. KJ Jefferson, QB, Arkansas: Had a performance for the ages (326 passing yards, 85 rushing yards, six total TDs) that would have be drawing more attention had Arkansas won in Oxford.
4. Chris Rodriguez, RB, Kentucky: Averaging 132 yards from scrimmage per game, and has rushed for at least 99 yards in five of the Wildcats' six games.
5. Tyler Badie, RB, Missouri: Rushed for 217 yards against North Texas, the second time he's topped 200 yards this season.
6. Will Rogers, QB, Mississippi St.: The Bulldogs were off last week.
7. Wan'Dale Robinson, WR, Kentucky: His 527 receiving yards lead the SEC.
8. Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU: He'll drop out next week due to a season-ending injury, but it seemed right to give him one last shout-out here.
9. Evan Neal, LT, Alabama: PFF has given him his best two game grades this year in 'Bama's last two games.
10. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas: His 136 receiving yards in Oxford marked the third time he's eclipsed 100 this season.
11. Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M: Hurt his tailbone against Alabama and his production (17 carries, 46 yards) probably suffered as a result.
12. Brian Robinson, RB, Alabama: Had 24 rushes for 147 yards against a tough Aggie defense for his second-straight great game against an SEC team.
13. Jameson Williams, WR, Alabama: Has emerged as Alabama's best receiver after standing out (10 catches for 146 yards) after leading the Crimson Tide in receiving yards for the fourth game this season.
14. Dontarrio Drummond, WR, Ole Miss: Has emerged as a big-play threat (17.0 yards per catch, six scores) in just five games.
