SEC Media Days begin on July 11 in Hoover, Alabama, marking the official beginning of the 2016 college football preseason. On Wednesday, the league announced the list of players that will be in attendance for each school.
A quick scan of the list draws a few takeaways:
Year of the tight end? Five of the 14 teams in the SEC are sending a tight end to represent their team. College Football Playoff star O.J. Howard and Ole Miss' Evan Engram are probably the picks for preseason all-conference team and even worthy of national recognition, but it's surprising to see a handful of tight ends in comparison to three quarterbacks and four wide receivers.
Most intriguing trio: Texas A&M. Trevor Knight has a chance to re-boot his career and provide much-needed stability at the quarterback position in College Station, Myles Garrett might be the most valuable defensive player in the country and Ricky Seals-Jones is a star, but would like to have his on-field production match the hype around his recruitment.
