SEC dominates Butkus and Lombardi lists

We have more watch lists out, as the Butkus and the Rotary Lombardi awards announced their preseason players for the 2013 season Monday.

The Butkus Award is given annually to the nation's top linebacker, while the Lombardi Award goes to "down linemen, end-to-end, either on offense or defense, who set up no farther than 10 yards to the left or right of the ball, or linebackers who set up no farther than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage."

The SEC put nine on the Butkus Award watch list, while 17 made the Lombardi Award watch list.

Here are the Butkus members:
