Alabama's Derrick Henry among SEC breakout players for 2014


We're a long way from the start of the 2014 college football season (not that we're counting, but it's 77 days away), but that doesn't mean we can't start going in-depth about what we think will happen this fall.

To that end, we're going to pick 10 players who will go from well-known in their leagues (actually, in some cases, it might even be little-known in their leagues) to well-known nationally this season -- the top 10 breakout players in each league, as it were.

Today, we look at the SEC's top 10 breakout candidates -- 10 players everyone will know about when November rolls around. We'll look at the Big 12 on Thursday.

10. Ricky Seals-Jones, Texas A&M

9. DL Darius Philon, Arkansas

8. WR Pharoh Cooper, South Carolina

7. LB Caleb Azubike, Vanderbilt

6. LB Leonard Floyd, Georgia

5. TE O.J. Howard, Alabama

Take a look at the best college players to watch in the fall.

4. WR Marquez North, Tennessee

3. DL Chris Jones, Mississippi State

2. OT Laremy Tunsil, Ole Miss

1. RB Derrick Henry, Alabama
