The top offensive players in the SEC at each position, since 2010.


QB Cam Newton, Auburn -- The iconic Newton, as the overwhelming offensive focal point for the Tigers, had an absolute season for the ages in 2010: he led Auburn to a perfect 14-0 record, won the national championship and the Heisman Trophy, among countless other national honors, led Power Five football with a 182.05 passer rating, led the SEC with 1,473 rushing yards and scored 50 total touchdowns.

RB Derrick Henry, Alabama -- Henry is the only SEC running back ever to top the 2,000-yard mark as he carried the Crimson Tide with an amazing 2,219 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2015. He scored at least one touchdown in each one of Alabama's games. Correspondingly, Henry won the national championship and claimed the Heisman Trophy in having one of the most productive seasons college football has ever seen.

RB Leonard Fournette, LSU -- In 2015, Fournette rushed for 1,953 yards and 22 touchdowns, averaging over 6.5 yards per carry and a national-best 162.75 yards per game. He, as an unstoppable force that fall, had four different games with at least 210 yards and added a 284-yard effort the next season. Playing just three years, and missing a number of games due to injury, Fournette still ran for 40 total touchdowns for the Tigers.

WR Amari Cooper, Alabama -- Cooper ranks second in SEC history with 3,463 career receiving yards and he played only three seasons with the Crimson Tide. That remarkable production not only resulted in Cooper winning the Biletnikoff Award, but also becoming a Heisman Trophy finalist as a receiver. As a junior, Cooper caught a remarkable league record 124 passes for 1,727 yards and 16 touchdowns.

WR Ja'Marr Chase, LSU -- Entering the upcoming national championship game, Chase is truly having an unparalleled season of production. He is the only Power Five receiver this millennium with 1,500 receiving yards, 20 yards per catch and at least 15 touchdowns and Chase has 18. Historically, his big play potential has proven to be one-of-a-kind. Chase recently won the Biletnikoff Award.

WR Jerry Jeudy, Alabama -- The last two years, for Jeudy, have resulted in 145 receptions for 2,478 yards and 24 touchdowns. He had multiple catches in every single game in that stretch. Jeudy won the Biletnikoff Award in 2018. Jeudy's final game was a fitting one; he scored a touchdown on the very first play of the game against Michigan in the Citrus Bowl, ending with six catches for 204 yards and a score.

TE Evan Engram, Ole Miss -- As a senior, Engram won the John Mackey Award with 65 catches for an impressive 926 yards and eight touchdowns. He, as a leading downfield option for the Rebels, had six games with at least 95 receiving yards that fall. Engram recorded 2,320 total receiving yards for his career and, showcasing his unique athleticism and fluidity, averaged 14.3 yards per catch.

OT Cam Robinson, Alabama -- The beginning to Robinson's career, with him starting all 14 games at left tackle as a true freshman, was a sign of things to come. He would go on to win a national championship, three SEC titles and be named a consensus All-American, win the Jacobs Blocking Trophy and Outland Trophy. A prototype at the position, Robinson helped the Crimson Tide establish new standards of offensive productivity.

OG Barrett Jones, Alabama -- Jones is one of the most decorated linemen in college football history. He won a stunning three national championships to go along with, among many other distinctions, the Rimington Trophy, Outland Trophy, Jim Parker Trophy, Jacobs Blocking Trophy and Wuerffel Trophy, while twice being a consensus All-American. Jones played center, guard and tackle at an elite level for the Crimson Tide.

C Ryan Kelly, Alabama -- Kelly notably won three national championships with the Crimson Tide, starring, individually, as a senior at Alabama. He won the Rimington Trophy, the Jacobs Blocking Trophy and was named a unanimous All-American that fall. Along the interior of the offensive line, the consistency of Kelly helped Alabama maintain the status quo after Barrett Jones.

OG Chance Warmack, Alabama -- In addition to winning three national championships, Warmack helped anchor a number of dominant Crimson Tide run games. He was named a unanimous All-American in 2012 and twice received All-SEC recognition. Warmack finished his career having started 39 consecutive games, taking over as a sophomore and emerging as a leader for Alabama from there.

OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M -- The latest-in-line in the Matthews family football dynasty, Jake notably excelled at both left and right tackle during his career. Helping the Aggies transition to the SEC, he earned all-conference honors twice at Texas A&M, also earning All-American honors in both 2012 and 2013. Matthews was part of record-setting Johnny Manziel-led offenses for the Aggies.
