If you're a diehard SEC football fan, you know how critical every position is. If you have a subpar tackles? Good luck with those defensive linemen and linebackers, right? Ineffective defensive backs? Good luck stopping the opposing wide receivers. There's very little room for error.
Every position is crucial.
Top 5 SEC Players By Position
Centers | Guards | Tackles | Tight Ends | Running Backs | Quarterbacks | Wide Receiver | Kickers
So today, we take a look at the top fullback in the SEC — and there are some good ones to choose from, no question. Who are the guys who catch the key pass, snag that key first down on a tough run? And who holds their own when that linebacker comes for his head?
HERO Sports will break down every position and let you know what we think. We realize we may have a backup listed here and there in the list below, but we think we have the top players at the position listed.
1. KAMRYN PETTWAY, JR. — AUBURN
THE SKINNY: Is Pettway (6-1/240) a fullback? Is he a running back? Who cares, right? He can play both rolls fantastically in the Tigers' vaunted spread offense. Last year he proved it with a 1,000-yard seasons — but make no mistake, there's no finesse about the way Pettway plays. He gets his yards the hard way and will make you pay the bill and leave a tip for good measure. He does have a quick first step, but he's not going to own you going east-west, it'll be more of the north-south variety. He has two years left to sort out exactly what his future position in the NFL is, but make no mistake, he can handle either one.
STATS: After playing sparingly as a freshman in 2015, he busted loose for 1,200+ rushing yards and 7 TDs last year as a sophomore. Two years to go.
