All-SEC: Week 10

Taking a look at the best players in the conference in November’s first games

November is here, so let's just get right into it. Another group of great performances from around the SEC.As always, make sure you read through the premise of this column here if you're unfamiliar.

Here's our All-SEC team for week 10, followed up by an updated year-to-date All-SEC team:

Quarterback

Name Team Comp. Att. Yds. Comp% TD INT Yds./Att. Rush Rush Yds. Yds./ Rush Rush TD Total Yds. Total TD
1st Team Nick Fitzgerald Mississippi State 18 31 209 58.1% 2 2 6.7 20 182 9.1 2 391 4
2nd Team Jake Bentley South Carolina 22 28 254 78.6% 2 0 9.1 5 16 3.2 0 270 2

This hasn't been the best year for Mississippi State -- understandable coming off the Dak Prescott era -- but their win against fourth-ranked Texas A&M had to feel good, and Fitzgerald was the biggest reason why.

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 Rawleigh Williams Arkansas 26 148 5.7 2 2 2 22 0 11.0 11.0 170 2 6.1
2nd Team Kamryn Pettway Auburn 25 173 6.9 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 173 0 6.9

Williams and the Hogs were able to consistently maul Florida on the ground on their way to a great win.

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 Christian Kirk Texas A&M 14 7 50.0% 144 1 20.6 10.3 1 0 0 0 144 1 18.0
Deebo Samuel South Carolina 10 9 90.0% 125 0 13.9 12.5 2 7 3.5 1 132 1 12.0
2nd Team Fred Ross Mississippi State 9 6 66.7% 98 2 16.3 10.9 0 0 0 0 98 2 16.3
Drew Morgan Arkansas 11 7 63.6% 94 1 13.6 8.6 0 0 0 0 95 1 13.6

Kirk has had somewhat of a disappointing season overall, but that was not the case on Saturday, even though it came in a loss. Samuel, meanwhile, has really come on strong since Jake Bentley took over at QB.

Tight End

Name Team Tgt. Catch Catch% Yds. TD Yds. / Catch Yds. / Tgt.
First Team Evan Engram Ole Miss 5 4 80.0% 75 1 18.8 15.0
Second Team Kendall Blanton Missouri 6 4 66.7% 42 1 10.5 7.0

Another week, another first-team appearance for Evan Engram.

Defensive Line

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Fadol Brown Ole Miss 8.5 1.5 0 0 0 0 0 1.5

Charles Harris Missouri 6 2 2 0 0 0 0 2
Lewis Neal LSU 5.5 1 0 0 0 0 0 1
Julian Rochester Georgia 6 1 1 0 0 1 0 2
Second Team Frank Herron LSU 3 1 1 0 0 1 0 2
Dalvin Tomlinson Alabama 3.5 1.5 1 0 0 0 0 1.5
Jeremiah Ledbetter Arkansas 2 1 0.5 0 0 0 0 1

Daeshon Hall Texas A&M 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

Not a great week for SEC defensive lineman. A few nice games, but nobody that really pops off the page at you.

Linebacker

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Jordan Jones Kentucky 8.5 2.5 0 1 0 1 0 4.5
Chris Moody South Carolina 10 0 0 1 1 0 0 1
Eric Beisel Missouri 12.5 2 0 0 0 0 0 2
Second Team Zach Cunningham Vanderbilt 7.5 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
Duke Riley LSU 6.5 2 0 0 0 0 0 2
Rommel Mageo Ole Miss 8.5 1.5 0 1 0 0 0 2.5

Jordan Jones is having a really, really good year for Kentucky. Beisel is a guy that's come along strong the past couple of weeks as he's filled in for the injured Michael Scherer.

Cornerback

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Dwayne Thomas LSU 6 3 0 2 0 0 0 5
Duke Dawson Florida 3 1 0 2 1 0 1 3
Second Team Joshua Holsey Auburn 3 0 0 3 1 0 0 3

Minkah Fitzpatrick Alabama 2 0 0 2 1 0 0 2

This was as good a week as any single position has had in a while. There were a handful of guys who would've easily made the list in another week.

Safety

Name Team Tackles TFL Sack PD INT FF TD Havoc
First Team Mark McLaurin Mississippi State 2.5 1 1 2 1 0 0 3
Santos Ramirez Arkansas 4.5 0 0 1 1 0 1 1
Second Team Jamal Adams LSU 4.5 1 0 1 1 0 0 2

Donovan Wilson Texas A&M 3.5 0 0 1 1 0 0 1

This is the first All-SEC appearance for both players on the first team. A big pair of games from a couple of unsung players.

Kicker

Name Team Made FG Att. FG Long Made XP Att. XP Total Pts.
First Team Rodrigo Blankenship Georgia 4 4 49 1 1 13
Second Team Daniel Carlson Ole Miss 3 4 53 2 2 11

Without Blankenship, we might be looking at Kentucky as the SEC East favorite.

Punter

Name Team Punt Att. Yds. Yds. / Att. Long
First Team J.K. Scott Alabama 5 258 51.6 66
Second Team Shane Tripucka Texas A&M 8 364 45.5 59

These guys punt.
