2009 Preseason All-SEC Offense
Preseason Offensive Player of the Year
QB Tim Tebow, QB Florida

Forget about the leadership angle for a second and just look at the stats. He has completed 66% of his passes for 6,390 yards and 67 touchdowns with 11 interceptions, and he has rushed for 2,037 yards and 43 scores. He throws a better, more accurate ball than most scouts give him credit for, and while his bruising running style isn't pretty, it's brutally effective. Tebow has all but thrown out the old fun 'n' gun by powering his way to national championships. Because of him, no one can ever call Florida a finesse team.

2009 Preseason

All-SEC Defense
Preseason Defensive Player of the Year
SS
Eric Berry, Jr. Tennessee

The 5-11, 203-pounder has done everything for the Vols as a last line of defense making 86 tackles two years ago and finishing third on the team with 72 stops last season. A pass rusher, he also made three sacks and 8.5 tackles for loss. But for all the big hits and all he does as the sheriff of the secondary, he’s at his best when the ball is in the air, tying for the nation’s lead with seven interceptions with 13 broken up passes. Deadly when he gets the ball in his hands, he holds the SEC record for a season with 265 interception return yards. A pure playmaker at strong safety, he should do even more to help out this year in the Tampa 2 system.
