The annual Preseason Coaches All-SEC Football Teams have been announced and nine Georgia Bulldogs found themselves on each of the three teams, as voted on by the coaches themselves.

OL John Theus and RB Nick Chubb were named to the first-team offense, while LB Jordan Jenkins was the lone Bulldog on the defensive side of the ball. Kicker Marshall Morgan also was a first-team selection.

Second-team picks for the Bulldogs included OL Greg Pyke, WR Malcolm Mitchell and Isiah McKenzie, who tied with LSU RB Leonard Fournette as the return specialist for the second team.

Rounding out the third-team preseason picks were a pair of defensive players in Leonard Floyd and Lorenzo Carter.

Georgia had eight players picked by coaches on last year’s preseason teams, including Theus, Mitchell, Jenkins and Morgan.

This marks the third year in a row that Georgia has had a running back picked first-team All-SEC.
