2010 Pre-Season All-SEC Team
by Paul Grossinger
Here's SEC Sports Fan's 2010 pre-season All-SEC Football Team:
QB: Ryan Mallett, Arkansas
McElroy will win more games but Mallett is the stud producer
RB: Mark Ingram, Alabama
Need I explain this one?
WR: Julio Jones, Alabama
The best receiver on the best team in the conference
WR: A.J. Green, Georgia
An exceptional talent
TE: D.J. Williams, Arkansas
Should be Ryan Mallett’s top target and produce accordingly
C: Mike Pouncey, Florida
Not quite his brother but close enough
G: Barrett Jones, Alabama
The gritty anchor of the conference’s best line
G: Carl Johnson, Florida
Has a new task ahead of him: protect a pocket passer
T: Clint Boling:
The conference’s most talented lineman
T: Lee Zimba, Auburn
Bigger than the school bus
DE: Cliff Matthews, South Carolina
His team’s defensive leader
DE Marcel Daraeus, Alabama
Is he Nick Saban’s toughest lineman?
DT: Jerrell Powe, Ole Miss
Can his team find its 2008 form?
DT: Nick Fairley, Auburn
Absolutely massive, he’s like a human roadblock.
LB: Justin Houston, Georgia
The conference’s best linebacker
LB: Dont’a Hightower, Alabama
Can’t you pick any starter on the Tide? I’m half serious…
LB: Craig Stevens, Auburn
His team is a few more top recruiting years away from true glory
CB: Patrick Peterson, LSU
Leader of a tough LSU secondary
CB: Jenoris Jenkins, Florida
A stud, the fact that he is slightly undersized won’t matter until he hits the NFL
S: Charles Mitchell, Mississippi State
An unorthodox choice from a bad team, but I like his game
FS: Janzen Jackson, Tennessee
Can he play up to his talent?
K: Blair Walsh, Georgia
P: Drew Butler, Georgia
No brainers, if the rest of the Bulldogs squad was as good as its special teams, they’d go undefeated.
