It's your Daily Football Fix! Gainesville Sun staff writers are here to help get you through the long, hot summer with a daily dose of college football. The series runs every day until the start of fall practice.

Now that the SEC has released which players will be in Hoover next week, I've picked out my targets. These are the players I want to make sure I talk to. After all, you have to pick and choose because there are going to be 36 players and 12 coaches over the three days, not to mention other significant sources of information.

So here are the 10 players, in order, who are can't-miss.

1. Mike Pouncey, Florida: Always interesting guy and his first big media appearance without his bro.

2. Mark Ingram, Alabama: How did the Heisman winner handle his off-season? And what does he think about all of the people who say he can't repeat.

3. Jordan Jefferson, LSU: I want to see if he's ready to lead. I have a feeling I will be able to walk away from this interview knowing what LSU's chance are going to be.

4. Nick Reveiz, Tennessee: Walk-on whose season was cut short last year. Great story. Plus, I have a feeling these Tennessee players may have stories to tell.

5. A.J. Green, Georgia: Best receiver in the league in my opinion. How does he handle a rookie quarterback?

6. Ryan Mallett, Arkansas: Lot of hype. It killed Jevan Snead a year ago.

7. Dont'a Hightower, Alabama: Last year's injury had to be devastating.

8. Patrick DiMarco, South Carolina: Walk-on who wanted to be a Gator. Chris DiMarco's nephew.

9. Randall Cobb, Kentucky: One of the best players in the league. How will he be used?

10. Jerrell Powe, Ole Miss: Heard a lot of stories. Want to see for myself what kind of intellect this guy has.
