Ranking the best 100 players in the Southeastern Conference based only on their play throughout the 2018 season.

For the past three years, I've ranked the top 100 players from the SEC prior to the season. However, now, for the second year in a row, I've decided to do them after the season, as well.

Unlike the preseason version, which I described as the order you would see if all the players were sorted by a 'Madden' rating, neither overall talent nor past production carries any weight. The only thing that impacted the ranking was how well each player performed during this past season. As such, whereas the preseason rankings used to be partly based on past performance, going forward they will be nearly entirely a projection.

One new wrinkle that had to be addressed with this, that wasn't a problem with the preseason ones, was injuries or just missed time in general. These were a player by player call with no two situations being identical.

In any case, here are the 100 best SEC players from the 2018 campaign, based solely on their performance over that stretch:
