Alabama Crimson Tide Leads 2013 All-SEC Team


The 2013 preseason All-SEC teams were released on Thursday, and the Alabama Crimson Tide featured 16 players on the three teams. Alabama had the most first team selections this year with seven. With 231 votes, Alabama linebacker CJ Mosley had the most votes of any player, besting South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M.

The media also selected Alabama to win the SEC Championship, which isn’t necessarily a good thing as the media has only correctly predicted the eventual SEC Championship four times.
