SEC Media Days wrapped up yesterday in Hoover, AL, and the media picks for how the Southeastern Conference would play out in 2015 were announced at the end of the extravaganza. Our Auburn Tigers were picked to win the SEC, but not to win the SEC West. Yes, that sounds dumb. The explanation is in that article, though.
Now it's time for the All-SEC Team! You can find the full media All-SEC Team here on the SEC site. What Auburn Tigers made the list?
WR Duke Williams - Almost a no-brainer, though I'm surprised he and Laquon Treadwell made First Team and Pharaoh Cooper was Second Team. It would not have shocked me had Cooper been swapped out for either of the First Teamers.
QB Jeremy Johnson - Dak is the man until anyone knocks him off. I think JJ can take that First Team spot on the year-end team.
OL Alex Kozan - I like seeing Alex Kozan here coming off his injury. If he's back to 100%, he could push to the top by the year's end.
OL Avery Young - Third team for Avery Young? There are a lot of great OL in the SEC, but I would have figured Second Team, at least.
DE Carl Lawson - He's on the team as a DE, when he'll likely play a lot of linebacker, but he's still on the team! I'm shocked at this following his injury that kept him out of the 2014 season, but I do think he belongs.
CB Jonathan Jones - It's nice to see Jay Jones get this level of recognition. He has a chance to be very special this year.
LB Cassanova McKinzy - The quarterback of Auburn's defense. I can't wait to see how he's improved under Muschamp & Co.
LB Kris Frost - Hopefully Kris Frost lives up to his potential this year.
S Johnathan "Rudy" Ford - Rudy Ford is a converted running back who has turned into a great Safety. He beat out Derrick Moncrief for the job at the start of last year and then never let go of it. He and Tray Matthews could both end up on the end-of-season All-SEC team.
