Gatorsports.com counts down this season's standout players in the nation's toughest conference.
No. 25 A.J. Johnson
Weight: 240 pounds
Why he's No. 25: Johnson emerged as one of the SEC's top linebackers last season as a sophomore, earning second-team recognition on the coaches' All-SEC team. He averaged 11.5 tackles a game and recorded 8.5 tackles for losses and one sack. He's a fast, physical player who is especially strong against the run. He also contributed on offense as the Wildcat quarterback in goal-line situations. Six of his 12 carries went for touchdowns.
