Ahead of SEC Football Media Days, Alabama leads preseason All-SEC teams

An early take, before SEC Football Media Days, on preseason All-SEC players from 14 SEC teams.

What SEC football team has the most, 'best' talent for the coming season? How far behind are the teams with the least 'best' talent? Alabama football fans will enjoy the answers based on preseason All-SEC predictions from Brad Crawford of 247Sports.

Crawford selected 49 SEC football players into first and second teams. His position breakdown is two quarterbacks, four running backs, four wide receivers, two tight ends, ten offensive linemen, eight defensive linemen, eight linebackers, eight defensive backs, and three specialists (first team only).

The Alabama Crimson Tide lead the way with eight players selected, followed by Georgia with seven and Texas with six. LSU, Ole Miss, and Kentucky have four each. Missouri and Texas A&M have three each. At two each are Oklahoma, Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee. Arkansas and Auburn have one player selected.

The list of 49 players does not include a Vanderbilt Commodore or a Mississippi State Bulldog. Alabama Crimson Tide position groups with no players selected are quarterback, wide receiver, tight end, and defensive line.
