Coronavirus prevented the KSR football crew from traveling to Atlanta for SEC Media Days. The delay made us miss an opportunity to fulfill a few annual traditions. After guzzling gallons of Diet Dr. Pepper, we’re now prepared to share our 2020 preseason All-SEC selections.

In Freddie’s Words — I have a higher number of Kentucky players on my All SEC team than most. Remember, it’s not personal, it’s personnel. I stand behind my choices.

Quarterback was a tough decision. I’ve not seen enough of Trask to have him ahead of Mond. In all reality, Terry Wilson would have been in this conversation of not for the injury. Max Duffy is the most sure fire selection and if you equaled positions in evaluational quality might be the best player in the league.

Nick Roush

Offense

QB — Kyle Trask, Florida
RB — Najee Harris, Alabama
RB — Rakeem Boyd, Arkansas
WR — Ja’Marr Chase, LSU
WR — George Pickens, Georgia
TE — Kyle Pitts, Florida
OT — Darian Kinnard, Kentucky
OT — Landon Young, Kentucky
C — Drake Jackson, Kentucky
OG — Trey Smith, Tennessee
OG — Deonte Brown, Alabama
All-Purpose — Jaylen Waddle, Alabama

Defense

DE — Big Kat Bryant, Auburn
DT — Tyler Shelvin, LSU
DT — Quinton Bohanna, Kentucky
DE — Kobie Whiteside, Missouri
OLB — Boogie Watson, Kentucky
ILB — Erroll Thompson, Miss. State
ILB — Nick Bolton, Missouri
OLB — KJ Britt, Auburn
CB — Patrick Surtain II, Alabama
CB — Derek Stingley, LSU
S — Richrd LeCounte, Georgia
S –JaCoby Stevens, LSU

Specialists

P — Max Duffy, Kentucky
K — Brent Cimaglia, Tennessee
R — Jaylen Waddle, Alabama

In Roush’s Words — Of course, I’m going to use this opportunity to load up on UK votes (eat it, Alex Leatherwood). Even though Kylin Hill is probably the most talented running back in the SEC, I worry about how he’ll be used in Mike Leach’s Air Raid. On the other side of the ball, I prefer saying Erroll Thompson’s name much more than Tennessee’s Henry To’o To’o and the fact that Thompson is about as nasty as it gets inside. The edge position is thin in the league this year. Boogie Watson is posted to be the league’s top pass rusher.

    ‘So based off KSR Stoops has no excuses if we dont win the East and it seems we are equal with Alabama in talent . SEC championship game or bust with all the talent Freddie and Ksr says we have now.
