Taking stock of all the changes in the SEC East

Taking stock of all the changes in the SEC East
Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

Some teams finished their 2012 seasons on a high note, while others within the SEC East limped to a finish. No matter what each program's situation may have been, none will be the same in 2013.

Thus, with Spring practices affording coaches across the country their first opportunities to see their ever-changing teams in action, we take a look at each of the rosters within the SEC East.

The number of starters returning does not always indicate success in the upcoming year, but it certainly doesn't hurt.

We have ranked teams by alphabetical order, not by 2012 finish.
