So, we're on to the first offensive skill position player in our countdown. Malcolm Johnson isn't a person that has turned a lot of heads, but this kid has the potential to be one of the top tight ends in the conference.

Johnson finished 2013 with 30 catches for 391 yards and two touchdowns, including six catches for 84 yards against Alabama. He earned second-team all-SEC honors last year as well.

He'll start the year out on the Mackey Award watch list, and with a few big games, could see himself named a semifinalist or finalist.
