ESPN writer Sam Khan Jr. released SEC preseason power rankings on Monday and Auburn landed at No. 1, just ahead of Georgia and Alabama.

Power Rankings:

1. Auburn
2. Georgia
3. Alabama
4. Ole Miss
5. Arkansas
6. Tennessee
7. LSU
8. Mississippi State
9. Missouri
10. Texas A&M
11. South Carolina
12. Florida
13. Kentucky
14. Vanderbilt

Here is what they had to say about Auburn:

1. Auburn: The offense isn't in doubt. The line returns four starters, Duke Williams is back at receiver and even though Jeremy Johnson isn't technically a returning starter, the junior QB has plenty of experience, including a pair of starts. The real question is what effect the hiring of Will Muschamp as coordinator will have on the defense. A healthy Carl Lawson and the arrival of No. 1-ranked recruit Byron Cowart could give Muschamp the pass rush he needs to make a dramatic improvement right away.

7. "LSU: If the Tigers solve their quarterback quandary, they could contend in the SEC West and maybe even for a College Football Playoff spot."
