Athlon Sports has released its preseason All-America team for 2013, and the SEC is represented by seven first-team selections. The Pac-12 led the way with eight first-team selections.
But in terms of first-, second-, third- and fourth-team, selections, the SEC had the most with 25.
Below is a look at the SEC players making the cut:
QB -- Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M
RB -- Todd Gurley, Georgia
OT -- Jake Matthews, Texas A&M
DE -- Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina
LB -- C.J. Mosley, Alabama
S -- Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Alabama
P -- Kyle Christy, Florida
RB -- T.J. Yeldon, Alabama
WR -- Amari Cooper, Alabama
WR -- Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt
TE -- Arthur Lynch, Georgia
C -- Travis Swanson, Arkansas
OT -- Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama
OT -- Antonio Richardson, Tennessee
DT -- Anthony Johnson, LSU
PR -- Marcus Murphy, Missouri
WR -- Mike Evans, Texas A&M
OG -- Gabe Jackson, Mississippi State
OG -- Anthony Steen, Alabama
CB -- Andre Hal, Vanderbilt
S -- Craig Loston, LSU
QB -- AJ McCarron, Alabama
DT -- Dominique Easley, Florida
LB -- A.J. Johnson, Tennessee
CB -- Loucheiz Purifoy, Florida
Who are the best players from the SEC not making any of the four teams?
At the top of my list would be Ole Miss receiver Donte Moncrief. I'd also throw in Alabama outside linebacker Adrian Hubbard, Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray, Florida cornerback Marcus Roberson, Vanderbilt offensive tackle Wesley Johnson, Missouri cornerback E.J. Gaines and Mississippi State running back LaDarius Perkins.
