All-SEC: Week 6

Who stood out in just five SEC games?

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Texas A&M Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Week 6 was the smallest slate of games thus far in 2016. Between scheduled bye weeks (Missouri, Ole Miss) and the LSU-Florida game canceled because of Hurricane Matthew, there were just five games on the SEC docket.

But while there was a smaller pool to choose from, there was still a number of strong performances across the conference. Tennessee-Texas A&M was especially notable, and maybe the game of the year so far (as long as the Vols are involved, there's always that chance, apparently.) So let's get to our All-SEC Week 6 team, and be sure to check out our year-to-date All-SEC team at the bottom of the post.

As always, read through the premise of this column here if you're unfamiliar.

Quarterback

Name Team Comp. Att. Yds. Comp% TD INT Yds./Att. Rush Rush Yds. Yds./ Rush Rush TD Total Yds. Total TD
1st Team Trevor Knight Texas A&M 17 34 239 50.0% 2 2 7.0 14 119 8.5 3 358 5
2nd Team Jalen Hurts Alabama 13 17 253 76.4% 2 1 14.9 8 20 2.5 2 273 4

Knight just keeps making plays every week, especially with his legs. He hasn't been perfect -- his completion rate is not great -- but he's a big reason with the Aggies are 6-0 as they head to Bama in a couple weeks.

Running Back

Name Team Att. Yds. Yds. / Att. TD Tgt. Catch Rec. Yds. Rec. TD Yds./ Catch Yds./ Tgt. Total Yds. Total TD Yds./ Touch
1st Team Alvin Kamara Tennessee 18 127 7.1 2 9 8 161 1 20.1 17.9 288 3 11.1
2nd Team Trayveon Williams Texas A&M 28 217 7.8 1 3 1 0 0 0 0 217 1 7.5

Are we sure Jalen Hurd is the best running back in Knoxville? Kamara was incredible on Saturday, and Williams was nearly as good.

Wide Receiver

Name Team Tgt. Catch Catch% Yds. TD Yds./ Catch Yds./ Tgt. Rush Att. Rush Yds. Yds./ Att. Rush TD Yds./ Scrim. TD/ Scrim. Yds./ Touch
1st Team Jared Cornelius Arkansas 10 5 50.0% 146 0 29.2 14.6 1 8 8.0 0 154 0 15.0
ArDarius Stewart Alabama 6 5 83.3% 120 0 24.0 20.0 0 0 0 0 120

24.0
2nd Team Christian Kirk Texas A&M 10 7 70.0% 80 1 11.4 8.0 0 0 0 0 80 1 11.4
Josh Reynolds Texas A&M 9 5 55.6% 89 1 17.8 9.9 0 0 0 0 89 0 17.8

Cornelius is quietly having a very nice year, and 146 yards against Bama is a great way to get noticed. Stewart, meanwhile, has arguably been the best receiver on the Tide's roster -- even better than Calvin Ridley.

Tight End

Name Team Tgt. Catch Catch% Yds. TD Yds. / Catch Yds. / Tgt.
First Team Hayden Hurst South Carolina 8 6 75.0% 86 0 14.3 10.8
Second Team Jeremy Sprinkle Arkansas 6 3 50.0% 37 1 12.3 6.2

With Evan Engram on bye, this was a golden opportunity for SEC tight ends to get their name on this list. Both of these guys had nice games, and are having pretty good years overall.

Defensive Line

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Carl Lawson Auburn 2.5 2 2 0 0 1 0 3

Derek Barnett Tennessee 5 1 1 1 0 0 0 2
Denzil Ware Kentucky 5.5 2.5 1.5 0 0 0 0 2.5
Jarrett Johnson Texas A&M 5 1.5 0.5 0 0 1 0 2.5
Second Team Myles Garrett Texas A&M 2.5 2 1 0 0 0 0 3.0
Marlon Davidson Auburn 3.5 1 1 0 0 1 0 2
Darius English South Carolina 4.5 1 1 0 0 0 0 1

Daeshon Hall Texas A&M 1 0.5 0.5 1 0 0 0 1.5

Despite there only being five games this past weekend, the defensive line portion of this is not suffering a bit. The Texas A&M defensive ends, in particular, had a great game.

Linebacker

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Richie Brown Mississippi State 10.5 0 0 0 0 1 0 1
Shaun Dion Hamilton Alabama 6.5 1.5 1 0 0 1 0 2.5
Colton Jumper Tennessee 8.5 1 0 1 1 1 0 2
Second Team Roquan Smith Georgia 9 0 0 0 0 1 0 1
Ryan Anderson Alabama 6.5 2 1 0 0 0 0 2
Bryson Allen-Williams South Carolina 9 1 0 0 0 0 0 1

A solid, if not spectacular, week for SEC linebackers.

Cornerback

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Minkah Fitzpatrick Alabama 4.5 0 0 5 3 0 1 5
Malkom Parrish Georgia 3 0 0 4 1 0 0 4
Second Team Malik Foreman Tennessee 3 0 0 2 0 1 0 3

Javaris Davis Auburn 4.5 1 0 1 0 0 0 2

Fitzpatrick's game against Arkansas might have been the best single individual performance we've seen in the SEC this season.

Down in College Station, Foreman had an excellent game and made one of the plays of the year when he forced a late fumble against A&M running back Trayveon Williams. It didn't lead to a victory for the Vols, but it preserved the possibility for a while.

Safety

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Justin Evans Texas A&M 9 1 0 3 1 0 0 4
Armani Watts Texas A&M 7.5 0 0 2 1 1 0 3
Second Team Ryan White Vanderbilt 7 0 0 2 0 1 0 3

Todd Kelly, Jr. Tennessee 5.5 0 0 1 1 0 0 1

Are Texas A&M's safeties the best positional group in the SEC?

Kicker

Name Team Made FG Att. FG Long Made XP Att. XP Total Pts.
First Team Austin MacGinnis Kentucky 2 2 46 2 2 8
Second Team Aaron Medley Tennessee 1 1 34 5 5 8

Did you know Kentucky's kicker and punter are named MacGinnis and McKinniss? I would watch that buddy cop movie.

Punter

Name Team Punt Att. Yds. Yds. / Att. Long
First Team J.K. Scott Alabama 4 206 51.5 63
Second Team Toby Baker Arkansas 4 211 52.8 57

These are the Week 6 punters.

Alvin Kamara, running back, Tennessee
