SEC Power Poll Ballot Draft: Week Three

Let me know what your thoughts are on my ballot draft.

1. LSU Tigers

2. Alabama Crimson Tide

3. Arkansas Razorbacks

These three teams seem to be the class of the league, IMO. Will be interesting to see what happens when the Tide and Hogs face off. The Hogs' defense did show some chinks in the armor against Troy, it's worth noting.

4. Florida Gators

5. South Carolina Gamecocks

I still think the Gators have some question marks on offense, but it's certainly much improved from a year ago, and the defense is stout. They seem to be a more complete team than the Gamecocks right now.

6. Georgia Bulldogs

7. Tennessee Volunteers

8. Auburn Tigers

9. Mississippi St. Bulldogs

Really hard for me to know what to make of most of these teams. They're all capable of winning big games, but they all have serious weaknesses, too. Georgia seems to be the most likely to go on a big run late in the season, IMO.

10. Vanderbilt Commodores

Not sure what to make of this team. They're 3-0 and whipped Ole Miss, but I can't decide whether I think they're going to beat any of the teams I'm ranking above them. Most of their success has been predicated on an absurdly good turnover margin, and that may difficult to maintain throughout the season.

11. Mississippi Rebels

12. Kentucky Wildcats
