Eight from SEC make Doak Walker list

By Edward Aschoff

There might be a lot of unproven quarterbacks in the SEC heading into the fall, but the running back talent in this league is downright scary.

Eight SEC rushers made the Doak Walker Award watch list as the preseason watch list craze continues. The award is given to the nation's top running back each season.

Here are the SEC players on the list:
There weren't any real surprises on the list, but it should be interesting see how many carries Demps gets compared to Chris Rainey this fall. Demps is one of the best home-run threats around, but Rainey is probably the Gators' best playmaker, and he was tremendous in practice this spring with Demps focusing on track. Many around the program think Rainey could get the majority of carries this fall.
