Considering he is likely to win the Heisman Trophy Saturday, there really was no other choice for SEC Offensive Player of the Year other than Alabama running back Derrick Henry. 

The junior finished the season with 1,986 rushing yards, 23 rushing touchdowns – including a conference record streak of 18 consecutive games with a rushing score – with an average of 152.8 rushing yards per game. 

In 2015, Henry became only the third player in SEC history to have four 200-plus yard rushing performances in a single season.
