NFL.com names 6 current SEC players who will become NFL stars in the near future
The 2018 NFL Draft has come and gone, with 10 SEC players hearing their names called in the first round.
Now, it’s time to prepare for the 2018 college season, where the SEC will have plenty more talented athletes returning to the gridiron.
On Tuesday, NFL.com analyst Chase Goodbread named 18 current college players he thinks will become stars in the NFL. Unsurprisingly, six SEC players made the cut. Below, you can see which players were on the list, as well as their position in the top 18:
- Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn — No. 2
- Drew Lock, QB, Mizzou — No. 6
- A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss — No. 8
- Damien Harris, RB, Alabama — No. 13
- Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia — No. 14
- D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia — No. 16
Stidham and Lock could be in the mix to be the No. 1 overall pick in 2019, and those other guys are no slouches either (Fromm and Swift will have to wait until at least 2020 to enter the draft, though).
It’ll be fun to see how this season plays out, but these six stars will be a lot of fun to watch.
