BIRMINGHAM, AL (WSFA) -

The highly anticipated SEC Media Days is upon us once again. It's the one week of the year where the SEC faithful can indulge in all things football before the season actually begins.

Although it is impossible to predict the surprises that come with Media Days, there are a few things that we know for certain. Auburn's student athlete attendees include Daniel Carlson (kicker), Tray Matthews (defensive back) and Braden Smith (offensive lineman). For Alabama it will be Bradley Bozeman (offensive lineman), Minkah Fitzpatrick (defensive back) and Calvin Ridley (wide receiver).

Alabama will begin the day on Wednesday at 10 a.m. Some key discussion topics surrounding the Crimson Tide will likely be about returning quarterback Jalen Hurts coming off one of the best seasons by a freshman quarterback, and what threat do the new quarterbacks pose for a potential starting role under center?

Also, bringing on brand new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. Fresh off a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots as the tight ends coach, he jumped ship to join Saban and the Crimson Tide. Daboll has experience as an NFL offensive coordinator in the past, so what will he bring to the table in the world of college football?

Lastly, 10 Alabama players drafted this year leave some significant holes to fill. Coach Nick Saban will bring us up to speed on which players are best suited for stepping into the spotlight this year and how big of an impact their star studded nation's best recruiting class will make as true freshmen.

Auburn will follow and help close out the week on Thursday at 10 a.m. It was announced so long ago that we forget, but Auburn also has a new offensive coordinator in Chip Lindsey. Head Coach Gus Malzahn will be pressed on who will be named the starting quarterback with Jarret Stidham coming in as a transfer.

Also, there's the returning star-studded backfield duo in Kerryon Johnson and Kamryn Pettway. Another burning question will be how big is the dropoff going to be on defense after losing Carl Lawson and Montravious Adams.

All 14 head coaches will be in attendance with 3 student-athletes to represent each school. The only 'new' coach this year will be LSU's Ed Orgeron, who coached the majority of the 2016-2017 season after replacing Les Miles on his early departure from the program.

The WSFA 12 Sports team will keep you covered throughout the week with extensive live coverage and minute-by-minute updates on social media.
