Alabama leads the way on coaches' All-SEC rosters

Posted: Updated:

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (SEC) -- Southeastern Conference champion Alabama had the most representatives on the 2012 All-SEC Coaches' Football Team, which the league office released on Tuesday.

Alabama had eight total members, including six on the first team. Florida was close behind with seven, while Eastern Division Champion Georgia and Tennessee had six each.

Ten of the 14 SEC schools had a member on the first-team All-SEC squad. Alabama led with six, while Florida had five and Texas A&M with four.

Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M) and Todd Gurley (Georgia) were the only freshmen to make the squad, with Manziel the only newcomer to earn a spot on the first team.

Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.

Offensive lineman Chance Warmack, D.J. Fluker and Barrett Jones joined running back Eddie Lacy, linebacker C.J. Mosley and defensive back Dee Milliner to make up the Tide's first-team honorees.

Quarterback A.J. McCarron and defensive back Robert Lester were both second team selections.

Jarvis Jones, who was named the SEC defensive player of the year by league media Monday, is the only Georgia player on the first team roster.

Gurley was joined on the second team by offensive lineman Chris Burnette, linebacker Alec Ogeltree, defensive lineman John Jenkins and defensive back Bacarri Rambo.

Tennessee wideout Cordarrelle Patterson was on both the first and the second team roster after his standout year as a do-it-all threat. The junior was an all-purpose selection on the first team, and also made the second team roster as a return specialist.

Tight end Mychal Rivera was the Vols' only other first-teamer, while linebacker A.J. Johnson, offensive lineman Dallas Thomas and receiver Justin Hunter made the second team. 

The SEC individual award winners will be released on Wednesday and the SEC All-Freshman Team will be announced on Thursday.
