The fans speak on the SEC's top 30 players

OK, here's one more top 30 list from this past season, this one coming from Scott in Upstate New York.

He has Vanderbilt cornerback Myron Lewis on his list, and as I've said, Lewis was really difficult for me to leave off. Scott also has LSU offensive tackle Ciron Black. I considered Black, but just didn't think he had a great senior season. Scott also included Florida receiver Riley Cooper, who had a big season and played his way into probably being drafted.

Another name that was thrown out there recently was Arkansas receiver Greg Childs, and Childs was another one I considered. I like all those Arkansas receivers. Here's betting a few of them show up in my pre-2010 season countdown this summer.

Thanks again for all your input.
