There are enough All-America and All-SEC teams out there right now to make your head spin.
Why not one more?
This one has a twist, though. This All-SEC team includes only those players who had not been honored in previous years as postseason All-SEC selections (first or second team) by either the Associated Press or coaches.
So here goes:
QB Ryan Mallett, So., Arkansas
RB Mark Ingram, So., Alabama
RB Anthony Dixon, Sr., Mississippi State
WR Shay Hodge, Sr., Ole Miss
WR Darvin Adams, So., Auburn
AP Randall Cobb, So., Kentucky
TE Aaron Hernandez, Jr., Florida
OL Chris Scott, Sr., Tennessee
OL Derek Sherrod, Jr., Mississippi State
OL Barrett Jones, Fr., Alabama
OL Lee Ziemba, Jr., Auburn
C Maurkice Pouncey, Jr., Florida
DE Pernell McPhee, Jr., Mississippi State
DE Cliff Matthews, Jr., South Carolina
DT Dan Williams, Sr., Tennessee
DT Jerrell Powe, Jr., Ole Miss
LB Chris Marve, So., Vanderbilt
LB Patrick Trahan, Sr., Ole Miss
LB Kelvin Sheppard, Jr., LSU
DB Patrick Peterson, So., LSU
DB Myron Lewis, Sr., Vanderbilt
DB Mark Barron, So., Alabama
DB Corey Broomfield, Fr., Mississippi State
K Leigh Tiffin, Sr., Alabama
P Drew Butler, So., Georgia
RS Warren Norman, Fr., Vanderbilt
Of note: The offense looks a lot like our regular All-SEC team last week. The only new players are Auburn receiver Darvin Adams and offensive linemen Barrett Jones of Alabama, Lee Ziemba of Auburn and Derek Sherrod of Mississippi State.
It's just the opposite on defense. Eight of the 11 are new faces. The only three defenders who were also named to the regular All-SEC team last week were Tennessee tackle Dan Williams, Mississippi State end Pernell McPhee and LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson.
