#1 – LSU Tigers

The LSU secondary is flat out loaded.  The leader of the bunch is free safety Jalen Mills who is one of the best safeties in America.  Mills is not only exceptional at playing center field but also one of the best tacklers in the SEC.  Cornerback Tre'Davious White is a shutdown cornerback and with the additions of true freshmen Kelvin Toliver and Donte Jackson the Tigers secondary adds elite speed and coverage ability.  If Jamal Adams can continue to develop this could be one of the most formidable units in the nation.

#2 – Georgia Bulldogs

UGA has a young but talented secondary led by the best defensive backs coach in the nation in Jeremy Pruitt.  You can't argue with Pruitt's results at Alabama and then at Florida State.  Last season with a true freshmen, career backups and a walk-on starting the UGA secondary was one of the best in the SEC.  Dominick Sanders and Malkom Parrish look poised to become household names in 2015 while the Dawgs also added a deep recruiting class that brings a lot of size and speed.

#3 – Florida Gators

Florida returns the best CB in the country in Vernon Hargreaves, III who will lock down whoever he is covering.  ON the other side of the field sophomore Jalen Tabor has the potential to reach levels close to Hargreaves.  The questions for the Gators come in the secondary at the safety position.  Keanu Neal and Marcus Maye return and while strong in run support they struggle in pass coverage.

#4 – Ole Miss Rebels

Stud safety Tony Conner returns for his junior season where he is the most intimidating presence in the SEC from the safety position.  The loss of Golson and Prewitt will hurt the secondary but the experience of Hilton and Elston along Connor will give the Rebels a solid foundation.  If the #1 JC cornerback in the country Tony Bridges plays to his potential this unit will be very strong.

#5 – Tennessee Volunteers

The Vols secondary is led by All-SEC cornerback Cameron Sutton.  They also bring back experience in the secondary at Randolph and McNeil at the safety positions.  True freshmen Micah Abernathy and JC transfer Justin Martin will be asked to contribute right away at cornerback.  The question for this group is whether or not they have upgraded their speed quotient on the back end.
