HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel insists there are still plenty of superstars in the Southeastern Conference.
The only problem is nobody's heard of them yet.
One year after high-profile players such as Alabama's A.J. McCarron, South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney and Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel brought a rockstar feel to SEC Media Days, the buzz is largely missing this week at the league's preseason showcase.
Part of the reason is a lack of experienced quarterbacks. McCarron, Manziel, LSU's Zach Mettenberger, South Carolina's Connor Shaw and Georgia's Aaron Murray are gone after impressive careers.
There are still some accomplished players in the league - especially at running back. Alabama's T.J. Yeldon and Georgia's Todd Gurley are among the nation's best.
Driskel said it won't be long before others become nationally known as well.
