This article is part of our Spring Practice Preview series.
College football spring practices are firing up, which means RotoWire will preview key job position battles at schools across the country. This article will feature the top job battle at each school within the conference and provide a projected outlook for the group for the 2019 campaign.
The SEC landscape is changing with several programs looking like they will take a step forward in 2019. Texas A&M is a trendy sleeper with 10-win upside (and six-win downside thanks to a brutal schedule), and Tennessee and Florida seem to have found long-term solutions with their head coaches. Elsewhere, the usual suspects have their own playoff aspirations with Alabama, LSU, Georgia, and Auburn all fielding loaded rosters.
As with any conference, this spring will be about identifying replacements at key positions and starting to sort out what the best 22 might look like on each side of the ball. Some schools, like Alabama, Tennessee, LSU, and Florida, are returning the bulk of their starting offensive skill players and will focus on cultivating championship-level depth. Other schools, like Auburn Missouri, Mississippi State, Mississippi, and Vanderbilt, are faced with replacing multi-year starters at quarterback.
