All-SEC Week 5

New, 11 comments

Plus our first year-to-date all-league team...

Week 5 is in the books as the SEC season rolls on. This week featured everything from embarrassing blowouts (MIZ!) to heartbreaking, last-second losses (Go Dawgs!). As we do every week, let's take a look at who stood out with our All-SEC.

For the first time, we'll do an update of our year-to-date All-SEC team following the Week 5 results. Remember, the year-to-date team -- see the Week 1 post for a reminder -- accumulates points earned from week-to-week appearances in this (subjective) column. So don't yell at me in the comments if your favorite player has better stat totals than a guy that ranks ahead of him. That's not how this works.

Anyways, on to Week 5:

Quarterback

Name Team Comp. Att. Yds. Comp% TD INT Yds./Att. Rush Rush Yds. Yds./ Rush Rush TD Total Yds. Total TD
1st Team Joshua Dobbs Tennessee 16 26 230 61.5% 3 1 8.9 9 47 5.2 1 277 4
2nd Team Jalen Hurts Alabama 20 33 262 60.6% 2 0 7.9 7 38 5.4 0 300 2

Tennessee probably has no business being 5-0 at this point, but here they are. Their Hail Mary victory over Georgia was the most exciting game of the season so far, and Dobbs' play was a big reason why the Vols were able to pull another rabbit out of the hat.

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 Derrius Guice LSU 17 163 9.6 3 2 1 21 0 21.0 10.5 184 3 10.2
2nd Team Eugene Brazley Ole Miss 13 124 9.5 2 3 3 25 0 8.3 8.3 149 2 9.3

Guice, filling in for an injured Leonard Fourtnette, made things look easy against Missouri, consistently running the ball down the other Tigers' throats. He's our offensive player of the week.

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 Calvin Ridley Alabama 17 11 64.7% 174 2 15.8 10.2 1 6 6.0 0 180 2 15.0
Tony Stevens Auburn 4 4 80.0% 109 1 27.3 27.3 0 0 0 0 109

27.3
2nd Team Jauan Jennings Tennessee 4 3 57.1% 71 1 23.7 17.8 0 0 0 0 71 1 23.7
Damore'ea Stringfellow Ole Miss 8 6 75.0% 94 0 15.7 11.8 0 0 0 0 94 0 15.7

This was not the best week for SEC receivers, but Ridley's monster game helps redeem the group a bit.

Tight End

Name Team Tgt. Catch Catch% Yds. TD Yds. / Catch Yds. / Tgt.
First Team Isaac Nauta Georgia 6 5 83.3% 83 1 16.6 13.8
Second Team Evan Engram Ole Miss 4 4 100% 82 1 20.5 20.5

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Jacob Eason to Isaac Nauta is going to be a regular thing for the Dawgs over the next three years or so.

Defensive Line

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Derek Barnett Tennessee 4 2.5 2 0 0 1 0 3.5

Marquis Haynes Ole Miss 5 2 1 0 0 1 0 3
Daeshon Hall Texas A&M 5 3.5 2 0 0 0 0 3.5
Adam Butler Vanderbilt 4 2 2 0 0 0 0 2
Second Team Jonathan Allen Alabama 7 1 1 0 0 0 0 1
Carl Lawson Auburn 2.5 2 1 0 0 1 0 2
Bryan Cox Florida 2.5 1 0 0 0 1 0 2

Kendal Vickers Tennessee 3 1 0 0 0 0 0 1

Barnett has really turned it on the last couple weeks, manhandling the Georgia and Florida offensive lines. He was probably the biggest standout this week, but there were a lot of really nice performances around the league as well. Shoutout to Vandy's Adam Butler, who was spectacular in one of the worst games of the year so far.

Linebacker

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Jarrad Davis Florida 12 0 0 3 0 0 0 3
Shaan Washington Texas A&M 9 2 1 0 0 1 0 3
Tim Williams Alabama 4 3 1 0 0 1 0 4
Second Team Natrez Patrick Georgia 7.5 2.5 1 0 0 0 0 2.5
Zach Cunningham Vanderbilt 9.5 1.5 0 0 0 0 0 1.5
Rashaan Evans Alabama 4.5 1 1 0 0 1 0 2

This was really an outstanding week for SEC linebackers after a not-so-great performance in Week 4. Shaan Washington is a guy having a great season that not enough people are talking about.

Cornerback

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Tre'Davious White LSU 2.5 0 0 3 1 0 0 3
Chris Lammons South Carolina 4 0 0 2 1 0 0 2
Second Team Tony Bridges Ole Miss 3 1 0 1 0 0 0 2

Malik Foreman Tennessee 4 0 0 1 1 0 0 1

Tre'Davious White was awesome against Mizzou on Saturday, shutting down J'Mon Moore, who up to that point was the SEC's leading receiver.

Safety

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Zedrick Woods Ole Miss 6 1.5 0 4 2 0 1 5.5
Maurice Smith Georgia 6 0 0 2 1 1 0 3
Second Team Jamal Adams LSU 3 0 0 2 0 0 0 2

Donovan Wilson Texas A&M 4 1 0 1 0 0 0 2

Yes, it came against Memphis, but Woods had as big a game as any SEC defensive back has had all season. Meanwhile, Alabama transfer Maurice Smith has been a huge boon for Kirby Smart's defense, even if they lost against the Vols.

Kicker

Name Team Made FG Att. FG Long Made XP Att. XP Total Pts.
First Team Eddy Pineiro Florida 2 2 42 1 1 7
Second Team Tommy Openshaw Vanderbilt 2 2 38 0 0 6

Kickers were the stars of Florida - Vanderbilt, which tells you all you need to know about that matchup.

Punter

Name Team Punt Att. Yds. Yds. / Att. Long
First Team Johnny Townsend Florida 7 363 51.9 62
Second Team Grant MacGinnis Kentucky 6 268 44.7 61

These are the Week 5 punters.

Offensive Player of the Week

Derrius Guice, running back, LSU

Defensive Player of the Week

Dedrick Woods, safety, Ole Miss

And finally, our first year-to-date update for All-SEC. There's beginning to be a little bit of separation at most positions, but it's still early, so your favorite player may well be just a week away from popping up on this list.
