All-SEC First Team led by eight from Alabama

T.J. Yeldon, Will Redmond

Alabama was picked by the media as the conference favorite in 2014 for good reason. The amount of talent on Alabama’s roster is in a class of its own, which is put on display by the preseason all-SEC teams released on th final day of SEC Media Week. Alabama led the conference with eight players on the All-SEC First Team.

Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper received the most voting points of any offensive player in the media poll, with 282 points. Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall was named to the first team with 241 points. Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon received 281 points for the top spot on the first team offense, but Georgia running back Todd Gurley received 280 points to receive first team honors as well.

Two defensive players from Alabama also received the highest voting totals for the defensive first team. Defensive back Landon Collins received 274 points, followed by linebacker Trey DePriest (253). Christion Jones received first team honors for special teams, giving Alabama eight total first team All-SEC players.

    Yawn. Who the hell cares. PFT didn’t do this for the Big Ten, Pac-w12, Big-12, or ACC, that exposes their bias for the cheating (i.e. oversigning) SEC.

    PFT didn’t make this list. The media at SEC media days did. When the other conferences hold their media days, they do it too.

    No mention that Auburn had more all together than Bama, go figure.
