One of the best things about the start of a new season is picking out who will be the new stars, those first-year players in the SEC who will dive in and make a profound impact on their teams.
Sometimes it's a true freshman or redshirt freshman, and sometimes it's a junior college transfer.
We've selected five strong candidates, and now it's on you via our SportsNation poll to tell us which newcomer in the SEC will have the biggest impact in 2012.
Of the three candidates we've selected, three are receivers -- Missouri true freshman Dorial Green-Beckham, South Carolina true freshman Shaq Roland and Tennessee junior college transfer Cordarrelle Patterson.
But the biggest splash?
That's up to you to decide. We'll go over the results in the coming days on the SEC blog.
