SP Editor Jim Johnson's annual ranking of the top 50 players in the Southern Conference.

Welcome back to my annual preseason ranking of the top 50 players in the SoCon. Earlier this year, we debuted a postseason ranking for the second time. As such, this allows for the preseason iteration to include a bit more projection, where as, in years past, it was more of a career achievement award.

Still, the best way to think about it is as a "Madden​" rating. If you were to sort every SoCon player by an overall grade, regardless of positional value, this is the order they would show up in.
