Gatorsports.com counts down this season's standout players in the nation's toughest conference.

No. 21 Jordan Jenkins

Position: Linebacker

School: Georgia

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 246 pounds

Year: Sophomore

Why He's No. 21: A promising edge rusher, Jenkins has big shoes to fill in replacing NFL first-round pick Jarvis Jones. But in 14 games as a true freshman last season, including six starts, Jenkins finished with five sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Jenkins has the combination of size and speed to thrive in Georgia’s 3-4 scheme.
