The SEC's do-it-all guys

It's always a lively debate in the SEC when it comes to who's the most versatile player in the league.

Well, this season in college football, there will be a national award given to the most versatile player -- the inaugural Paul Hornung Award.

The preseason watch list, comprised of 48 players, was compiled by a panel of college football experts based on 2009 statistics and expectations heading into the 2010 season. The list will be updated during the course of the season based on players' performances.

Eight players from the SEC are on the list -- Randall Cobb and Derrick Locke of Kentucky, Leon Berry of Mississippi State, Brandon Boykin of Georgia, Stephon Gilmore of South Carolina, Warren Norman of Vanderbilt, Chris Rainey of Florida and Demond Washington of Auburn.

Here's the complete Hornung Award watch list.
