SEC Football 2016 All-Conference Team

Athlon honors the best in the SEC for 2016.

The SEC – college football’s best conference – is never short on talent and features some of the nation’s best players once again in 2016. The balance of power in the SEC is tilted to the West this fall, with 63 of the 108 selections on Athlon’s projected all-conference team coming from this division. Alabama leads the way with 14 overall selections, followed by LSU with 12, with Tennessee, Georgia and Florida tied with 11. The Volunteers, Bulldogs and Gators account for 33 of the East Division’s 45 selections on Athlon’s 2016 All-SEC team. 

 

Athlon Sports released its full predictions for the SEC last week. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2016.

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2016. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2016 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
