There comes a time for every college football team when it needs to punch the ball into the end zone from the 1-yard line. A panel of ESPN reporters broke down who would be best suited to make the play for each of the teams in its early top-25. Some of the SEC choices were interesting.
For Alabama, it was suggested that the ball be given to Bo Scarborough. There’s a reason for that:
LSU’s Leonard Fournette will get a lot of the carries for the Tigers, and he was the common-sense choice in this scenario as well.
Defensive player Khalil McKenzie was picked over Josh Dobbs and Jalen Hurd for Tennessee.
Nick Chubb was the obvious choice for Georgia.
A pair of 300-plus pound defensive tackles made the list for Ole Miss and Texas A&M. Breeland Speaks was the choice for the Rebels, and Daylon Mack , who spent some time running the ball in high school, got the nod for the Aggies.
