The 2022 Preseason All-SEC Team: Did the Media Get it Right?

The Selections (and Non-Selections)

The media put out the 2022 Preseason All-SEC Team to close out last week’s 2022 SEC media days.

The 1st Team Offense

The media got some of the selections right, but in my opinion not all of them.

The 1st Team Defense

I disagree with two selections here.

2nd Team Offense/Defense

With the aforementioned exceptions listed above, I agree with these selections.

3rd Team Offense

The media selected QB Will Levis of Kentucky over Will Rogers of Mississippi State on the 3rd team. What was the criteria here: performance (stats) or success on the field?

Levis’ stats:

2812 yards, 24 TDs, 13 INTs, 66% completion percentage. Some say he is a top NFL prospect.

Rogers’ stats:

4739 yards, 36 TDs, 9 INTs (in 683 pass attempts). He completed 73.9% of his passes (505 completions). That was good enough to rank #4 in the FBS.
