SEC Football 2021 All-Conference Team

Athlon honors the best in the SEC for 2021

The 2021 All-SEC team is led by 15 selections from Alabama and Georgia, with Texas A&M and LSU tied at nine apiece. Auburn, Ole Miss, Kentucky and Mississippi State each have eight picks, with Arkansas (seven) and Florida (six) rounding out the next tier for the 2021 All-SEC squad.


Athlon Sports has released its top 25 for 2021. 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 2021.


An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2021. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2021 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year. Also, team strength does not play a role in selections. These are the best individual players at each position in the league for '21.
