Nation's best running back, and SEC's third best player

ESPN's Aschoff has taken on the unenviable task of ranking the SEC's best players. That link includes the full countdown to date, up to Todd Gurley at number three. Manziel and Clowney will "battle" it out for the top spot, presumably, given who is left yet to be named.

Setting aside the debate over what constitutes "best", and presuming and wishing a healthy season for all the players listed, I'm going to predict that no one has a better season than Gurley. That is, unless Richt continues to have "seen enough" of him to sit him down.

Also, it's nice to have TWO Georgia running backs listed among the best. Even though they're only sophomores. These are once again high times for the historic Georgia Bulldog backfield for sure.
