2014 SEC Breakout Performers

It’s a new year and that means new opportunities for players you haven’t perviously heard of to break-out on the scene. What defines a break-out performer? I look of guys that were a little bit under the radar in 2013 that only a fan of that particular school would be familiar with.

Experience is at a premium when playing in the SEC. If you’re roster if full of inexperience, you can all but guarantee that some lumps will be taken early.

It’s a sliding scale but something interesting to look at. Here are the 2014 projected returning starters via Lindy’s, the 2013 record, and if they have a returning starting QB.

Picking Wins and Losses For Every SEC Team

You know how most prognosticators just put a number on each team and don’t tell you which games they’ll win or lose? Not 3rdAnd57 ladies and gentlemen. I will pick every single game. I’ll go out on some limbs and undoubtedly be wrong on numerous picks.
