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

No. 20 Travis Swanson

Position: Center

School: Arkansas

Height: 6-foot-4

Weight:314 pounds

Year: Senior

Why he's No. 20: Swanson is tall for a center, but the Arkansas staff loves his ability to move. Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com named Swanson one of his 20 “freaks” of college football. Swanson didn’t get a lot of attention last year because of the Razorbacks’ dismal season, but offense wasn’t the problem in Fayetteville. Swanson helped protect QB Tyler Wilson for three years and has started in all 38 games over the last three seasons. He was named second-team All-SEC a year ago and is considered the No. 1 center prospect for the next NFL draft. Swanson has been named to both the Rimington and Outland watch lists the past two seasons.
