No one in the media is giving Arkansas credit for much talent this year and apparently the coaches are thinking the same way.
Georgia placed a league-leading 12 representatives on the 2018 Preseason Coaches All-Southeastern Conference Football Team, the SEC announced Thursday. Alabama was second with 10 representatives, while Auburn had nine.
This marks the 16th consecutive year of the SEC Coaches Preseason All-SEC Team. All 14 SEC schools were represented on the All-SEC team, including seven schools with six or more selections. Ten schools had at least one First-Team All-SEC selection, including a conference-best five from Alabama.
Hjalte Froholdt, who is likely to be playing center this year, was voted second team by coaches. Third-team selections included offensive lineman Brian Wallace, linebacker De’Jon Harris, defensive back Santos Ramirez and kickoff returner De’Vion Warren.
Froholdt was a second-team pick and Harris and Ramirez were voted to the third team in the preseason media poll last month.
The Hogs’ five selections were tied with South Carolina, Ole Miss and LSU for seventh-most in the conference. Vanderbilt had two and Tennessee had one player on the three teams.
Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.
