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

No. 12 Jordan Matthews WR

Position: Wide receiver

School: Vanderbilt

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 205 pounds

Year: Senior

Why he's No. 12: Matthews became one of the steadiest and most productive players in the conference last year. He caught 94 passes for 1,323 yards and eight touchdowns last year, leading the SEC in catches and second to Cobi Hamilton in yardage by only 12 yards. He also had a 47-yard touchdown run against Tennessee. He also had seven games with more than 100 receiving yards. As a sophomore, Matthews caught 41 passes for 778 yards averaging 19.0 yards a catch. No matter how the quarterback position shakes out, Vandy has to find a way to get him the ball.
