1. Todd Gurley II, RB, Georgia

There's no question that Todd Gurley is the top player in the SEC. When healthy, Gurley is not only one of the best running backs in the country, but is also one of the best overall players in the nation.

Even after missing three games last season, Gurley totaled 1,430 total yards rushing and receiving, and had 16 touchdowns. Gurley ended last season with four straight games of at least 150 total yards, as he showed how dangerous he was running up the middle and getting the ball out in space.

And of course, he's receiving all of the preseason honors for 2014. He is a preseason first-team All-American and a preseason first-team all-SEC selection.

With Gurley back to full strength, the Bulldog offense could be even more dangerous in 2014.
