Alshon Jeffery

Wide receiver | South Carolina

Entering the 2010 season, Alabama's Julio Jones and Georgia's A.J. Green were widely considered the best receivers in the SEC. But Alshon Jeffery outplayed both of them, finishing with 79 catches for 1,387 yards with nine touchdowns.

The sophomore set South Carolina single-season records for catches and receiving yards and led the Gamecocks to their first SEC East championship.

Jeffery played his best in many of the Gamecocks' biggest games, catching eight passes for 192 yards with two touchdowns in a 35-27 loss at Auburn and seven receptions for 127 yards with two scores in a 35-21 upset of then-No. 1 Alabama.
