The Associated Press announced its All-SEC team for the 2017 college football season.
Headlining the group is Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Roquan Smith. The Bednarik Award finalist certainly deserved the honor after having a fantastic season with the Dawgs. He’s also joined by fellow Bednarik Award finalist Minkah Fitzpatrick. The Alabama Crimson Tide defensive back was phenomenal all season, so it comes as no surprise that he heads the secondary.
The offense features Auburn Tigers running back Kerryon Johnson. Johnson was sensational this season and was one of the driving forces for the SEC West champion Tigers this year. Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley also made the first team after another terrific season catching passes for the Tide.
Mizzou Tigers quarterback Drew Lock is also on the First Team. Lock had an historic season in Columbia, breaking the conference record for most TD passes thrown in a single season (43). Celebrated Auburn kicker Daniel Carlson also made the team, as did Ole Miss Rebels wide receiver A.J. Brown and many more.
Here’s the First and Second Teams in all their glory.
