The transfer portal is nearly finished as LSU has brought in just one transfer while other schools have nearly finished their activity as well. We now head into the Summer with rosters fully set giving us an idea of what is to come this fall. After Spring Practices and Transfer Portal moves here is our way too early power ranking of the SEC heading into the Summer:

16. Vanderbilt Commodores

In 3 seasons at Vanderbilt, Clark Lea has twice led Vandy to 2-10 seasons without winning a game in the conference. Coming off of another last place finish, the conference has only gotten tougher for Vanderbilt making it nearly impossible for them to avoid finishing in last. The addition of New Mexico State transfer Diego Pavia should make Vanderbilt a better watch but, there's no scenario where they finish ahead of anyone in the SEC.

15. Arkansas Razorbacks

The Arkansas Razorbacks have a chance to be the hectic crazy storyline team of the fall this season. The team lost starting quarterback KJ Jefferson to UCF in the transfer portal while Sam Pittman is on the hot seat and may be the first coach fired. If Pittman is fired it may be Bobby Petrino time as Petrino is back in Arkansas for the first time since his disgraced exit in 2012.

If Arkansas is going to turn things around it starts with Boise State transfer Taylen Green who will lead the team at quarterback. The Razorbacks will need solid protection up front for the dual threat quarterback which could be bumpy early on as Arkansas replaces three offensive linemen with incoming transfers.

14. Mississippi State Bulldogs

Mississippi State's season last year couldn't have gone worse due to the team picking the wrong man to replace Mike Leach. Now the Bulldogs have a coach that can fit their personnel in Jeff Lebby who is known for leading seriously explosive offenses. At quarterback, Lebby brought in Baylor transfer Blake Shapen who may end up seeing his stock rise because the Bulldogs will air it out a ton. I'm a believer in Jeff Lebby but, the Bulldogs just don't have the talent he needs in year one in this new SEC.
