SEC Bloggers: Preseason All-SEC Team
CFN's SEC Bloggers offer their preseason All-SEC teams, as well as their prediction for Eastern and Western division winners
LSU was picked to win the West, and South Carolina to win the East.
Three teams failed to get a First Team vote: Florida, Auburn and MSU. Every squad was represented on the Second Team.
Alabama had the most players selected at 11, followed by Arkansas, South Carolina and Georgia with seven each, then LSU and Auburn with five each.
Florida had the fewest players selected (1 - Calib Sturgis, Second Team PK). Followed by Tennessee and Mississippi State with two each, then Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Kentucky with three each.
Interestingly, the East had more players selected to the First Team (15) than the West (13). However, overall the West had 59% of the players.
There were eight First Team unanimous selections (five on offense), but only one Second Team unanimous selection (Alabama RB Trent Richardson).
Arkansas running back Knile Davis was a unanimous First Team selection over Richardson.
Devin Taylor was the only unanimous First Team DL, after squeaking in as a Media Days' Third Team All-SEC selection.
Unanimous votes are identified by an asterisk.
