|Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson's up-and-down season will likely hurt his draft status. (US Presswire)|
Here's the latest on the SEC's top players who are projected to go from playing on Saturdays to starring on Sundays.
Why he has the top spot: Jones again showed his versatility in a 42-10 win over Georgia Tech on Saturday. Though he's most feared as a pass rusher, he had no problem defending the Yellow Jackets' option attack, recording nine tackles and 1.5 TFLs. Jones, when healthy, has been one of the most feared defenders in the nation this season. He will certainly be picked early in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Season stats (10 games): 71 tackles, 10.5 sacks, 19.5 TFLs, 6 forced fumbles, 30 QB hurries, INT.
Player ranking: Jones is ranked third overall, and he's the highest-ranked outside linebacker in CBSSports.com's latest player rankings.
Up next: The Bulldogs face Alabama in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday. Jones will be tested by perhaps the best overall OL in the nation.
Why he has the second spot: Hunter, perhaps the most athletic overall WR in the conference, wrapped up his junior season by making three catches for 65 yards and a TD in a 37-17 win over Kentucky. His 42-yard catch and run for a TD was one of his better plays of the year. He made the reception and juked a Kentucky defender and then ran in for the score. He finished the regular season as the third-leading receiver in the SEC and he will likely leave school early for the NFL.
Season stats (12 games): 73 catches for 1,083 yards, 9 TDs.
Player ranking: Hunter is ranked No. 44 overall and is the fifth-highest ranked wide receiver in CBSSports.com's latest player rankings.
Up next: Tennessee's season is over.
Why he has the third spot: The redshirt senior put up good numbers in his final game against LSU despite a 20-13 loss. Wilson completed 31 of 52 passes for 359 yards, one TD and one INT. Though he's not normally known as a scrambling QB, he also added 38 yards on the ground. Wilson's season wasn't what many expected overall, but he still has the size and the arm to be a high pick.
Season stats (11 games): 249 of 401 (62.1) for 3,387 yards, 21 TDs, 13 INTs.
Player ranking: Wilson is ranked as the No. 27 overall prospect and is the third-highest ranked QB in CBSSports.com's latest player rankings.
Up next: Arkansas's season is over.
Why you should watch him? Warmack might be the best player on a stacked Alabama OL. There could be four or five future NFL players on it, but Warmack will likely be the first taken. He's extremely powerful in the run game and has developed into a nice pass blocker as well. He moves well for a player his size.
Player ranking: Warmack is ranked as the No. 6 overall prospect and is the top-ranked offensive guard in CBSSports.com's latest player rankings.
Up next: Alabama will play Georgia in the SEC Championship Game on Saturday. He'll have his hands full against Georgia's massive NT John Jenkins (6-3, 360).
