ESPN has released its preseason power rankings.
Which team does ESPN have at the top of the SEC heading into the fall?
The reigning national champions, of course.
Alabama, which holds the No. 1 spot in the Coaches’ Poll, is No. 1 in ESPN’s preseason power rankings for the conference, too.
Look who’s back on top. Yes, the Crimson Tide had seven players picked in the first three rounds of this year’s NFL draft, including Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry. And sure, they still haven’t named a starting quarterback for 2016. But isn’t that how it is every year in Tuscaloosa? With players like Calvin Ridley, Cam Robinson, Jonathan Allen and Eddie Jackson on the roster, Alabama is still loaded and still the team to beat in the SEC.
Who’s your pick to win the conference this season?
