Gatorsports.com counts down this season's standout players in the nation's toughest conference.
No. 5 AJ McCarron
Weight: 214 pounds
Why he's No. 5: McCarron has been all about winning during his college career. He's led Alabama to a 24-2 record and back-to-back national titles in two seasons as a starter. In 2012, McCarron threw a school-record 26 TD passes and went 291 pass attempts between interceptions in a stretch from 2011 to 2012. McCarron has passed for 5,956 yards during his Alabama career with a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 49 to 8. He'll be counted on to lead Alabama's balanced offense again this season, which should feature a mix of throws downfield and carries by running back T.J. Yeldon.
