10. SEC offenses will fear Rashaan Gaulden
You’re right, he’s not a 2016 signee. But he is somewhat of a newcomer. Gaulden missed the entirety of the 2015 season due to injury, and has been hungry to see the field ever since. He has the athletic instincts of first-round draft material, as he proved in the Orange and White game. His move from nickel to safety has been smooth, defensive coordinator Bob Shoop loves him, and his chemistry with his roommate Todd Kelly Jr. will only further aid his ability to run the secondary. Quarterbacks and athletes around the SEC will all know his name.
