Alright, so I got sick of looking at Jadaveon Clowney on the front of RollBamaRoll and decided to do the First (and probably last) Annual CB969 Pre-Season All-SEC Team. Catchy name, huh?
Admittedly, I am a fan of the Crimson Tide but I will refrain from putting all Alabama players on the team. I know it may pain some of you Tide fans to see some Vols and Gators on my team but you'll be glad to know, there are no Aubies. This is not prejudice. It is just that there are none worthy.
So, here they are in no particular order. Let me know who you think was left off, overrated, or whatevs:
Amari Cooper, Alabama - another fab frosh who made Tide fans almost forget about Julio Jones - ALMOST
Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt - Madison, Alabama native had 1,323 yards and 8 TDs in 2012.
Mike Evans, Texas A&M - 1105 yards, 5 TD as a frosh.
Honorable mention: Donte Moncrief, Ole Miss - 979 & 10 TDs.
Travis Swanson, Arkansas
Arthur Lynch, Georgia - there are not too many great TEs in the SEC but Lynch is the best of the bunch.
Anthony Johnson, LSU
Dominique Easley, Florida
Carey Spear, Vanderbilt - 27-27 XP; 20-24 FG, 2-3 from 50+.
Kyle Christy, Florida - 45.8 ypp, 5th in the nation in 2012.
Marcus Murphy, Missouri - 3 punts returned for TDs and a 98-yard kickoff return against Alabama for a TD.
