SEC Breakout Player No. 6: John Metchie

Imagine winning the A-day game MVP, while leading all receivers, with five receptions for 133 yards and rarely touching the field the following season. That was the case for John Meechie III as he had to wait his turn behind one of the most prolific receiving corps in SEC history. With Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III drafted in the top 15 of the NFL draft, Meechie’s wait is over.

Most defenses will be focused on trying to slow DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle down, which will give Meechie a chance to make immense contributions. While I expect to see a more substantial dose of Najee in the running game next season, but the Tide is still going to air it out.

Mechie will surpass the 800 yards receiving mark and eight touchdowns.
