‘Tis the season for award watch lists, as media days are just around the corner.

The Paul Hornung Award Watch List was released with 44 names on the preseason list, which includes nine SEC players.

You can see the entire list here, but below are the SEC players named:

  • Odell Beckham, WR/KR, LSU
  • Trey Burton, FB/RB/WR, Florida
  • Bruce Ellington, WR/KR, South Carolina
  • Christion Jones, WR/CB/PR/KR, Alabama
  • Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
  • Malcolm Mitchell, WR/KR, Georgia
  • Marcus Murphy, RB/PR Missouri
  • LaDarius Perkins, RB/KR, Mississippi State
  • Loucheiz Purifoy, DB/WR/KR, Florida

Aside from Johnny Manziel, I love LSU’s Odell Beckham and Florida’s Loucheiz Purifoy as two of the most versatile athletes in the country. Both are primed for monster junior seasons.
