Alabama… sophomore safety Robert Lester. The SEC leader in interceptions will be patrolling the middle of the field looking for errant passes. And there’s a good chance LSU’s quarterbacks will throw them. Last week’s choice: off week.
Arkansas…cornerbacks Darius Winston and Ramon Broadway. With the Razorbacks looking at a potential shootout this week versus South Carolina, these two will have to stop the conference’s best wideout in Alshon Jeffery. Last week’s choice: RB Knile Davis – rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown along with 42 yards receiving.
Auburn … junior quarterback Cameron Newton. So will he get 3-, 4- or 500 yards of offense this week against Chattanooga? Last week’s choice: Newton – 254 yards of total offense, two touchdowns, plus a 20-yard touchdown catch.
Florida…senior safety Ahmad Black. Diminutive safety is the Gators’ defensive leader, and he could be in for some big plays against Vandy’s struggling offense.Last week’s choice: John Brantley and Trey Burton – a combined 346 total offensive yards, 2 rushing touchdowns and 1 interception.
Georgia…redshirt freshman QB Aaron Murray. He can wash the taste of that Florida game out of his mouth against Idaho State. Last week’s choice: LB Justin Houston – three tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and half of a sack.
Kentucky…junior receiver Randall Cobb. He can help the Wildcats take another step towards bowl-eligibility this week against Charleston Southern. Last week’s choice: QB Mike Hartline – passed for 258 yards, with 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.
LSU … cornerback Patrick Peterson. The Tigers will need him to do special things on Saturday, both on defense and special teams, if they’re going to have any chance of beating Alabama.Last week’s choice: off week.
Mississippi State…off week. Last week’s choice: RB LaDarius Perkins – 11 yards rushing.
Ole Miss …freshman running back Jeff Scott . He’s starting to emerge as a true big-play running threat for the Reb-bears, and should have a good opportunity against a bad ULL team. Last week’s choice: QB Jeremiah Massoli – completed 20 of 33 passes for 189 yards with one touchdown and one interception, and ran for 29 more yards.
South Carolina…sophomore receiver Alshon Jeffery. He leads the SEC in receiving yards by game with a 40-yard edge over second place. Last week’s choice: WR Alshon Jeffery – 3 catches for 87 yards, including a back-breaking 70-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Tennessee…freshman quarterback Tyler Bray. He made some things happen by coming off the bench in the second half last week. Will Derek Dooley let him grow some more this week against Memphis? Last week’s choice: RB Tauren Poole – 33 yards rushing on 16 carries.
Vanderbilt...junior cornerback Casey Hayward. He’s the choice for the third week in a row, just because he gets to face Florida’s struggling passing attack. Last week’s choice: Hayward – 9 tackles, 2 pass break-ups.
