We’re celebrating football being back by counting down to kickoff using content-specific pieces every weekend to deliver the good stuff — last-minute primers involving all 14 SEC teams. Here are the previous installations.

Monday begins Game Week.

Let’s try it again. MONDAY BEGINS GAME WEEK.

Finishing up our summer-long SEC Kickoff Countdown series, today we’re picking true freshmen to watch at every position this season, guys we think will see playing time early and could impress viewers.

True freshmen to watch in the SEC

QB — Kyler Murray, Texas A&M: Imagine this kid playing for any other program in the SEC with a quarterback competition on its hands right now. The nation’s top-ranked dual-threat in the 2015 class would likely start. Murray’s playing behind incumbent Kyle Allen this season, but Kevin Sumlin has stated that he’ll play. How much of the game plan Murray will be involved with remains to be seen.

RB — Jordan Scarlett, Florida: Scarlett’s not the highest-rated SEC signee at the position, but he could perhaps get the most touches during his first season in a thin backfield in Gainesville. Adam Lane’s departure leaves Kelvin Taylor as the Gators’ featured back with Scarlett and fellow freshman Jordan Conkrite fighting for the No. 2. Jim McElwain utilizes a two-back system, so it’ll be interesting to see where Scarlett fits.

WR — Calvin Ridley, Alabama: He’s already drawn comparisons to Amari Cooper, so you know this five-star is primed to be the next legit wideout for the Crimson Tide. He’s had an excellent fall camp, learning the ropes at the position alongside Robert Foster, ArDarius Stewart and Chris Black. We think Ridley will find the end zone several times this fall. Georgia’s Terry Godwin is another solid pick here.

OL — Martez Ivey, Florida: Reportedly out 2-4 weeks with a meniscus injury, this five-star tackle was in line to start in next week’s opener against New Mexico State, but his debut may have to wait until October. A much-needed get for the Gators up front, Ivey has tremendous strength and is light on his feet for a player his size.

DL — Kahlil McKenzie, Tennessee: There’s a handful of five-star signees set to explode this fall, but McKenzie made the most noise during fall camp in Knoxville, bulldozing his way to several pressures, sacks and overall disruption. He’s a load at 6-foot-3, nearly 350 pounds who will be a household name in the Eastern Division by midseason.

LB — Natrez Patrick, Georgia: Moving from weak-side end to linebacker after his early arrival this spring, Patrick’s been a pleasant surprise for the Bulldogs as an athlete who will make an instant contribution at Georgia’s most talent-rich position on defense. At 6-foot-3, 250 pounds, he’s a natural in run support and moves well in coverage.

DB — Kevin Toliver II, LSU: The five-star ballhawk is projected to start the season behind Ed Paris opposite of Tre’Davious White at one of the corner spots, but Toliver’s too talented to keep on the sideline. Kevin Steele will utilize the freshman’s skill set in a variety of packages, perhaps in a nickel role to get him on the field early.
