Where the voters got it right: Dak Prescott as the first-team quarterback. He is the best returning QB in the SEC, hands down.
Where the voters got it wrong: Joshua Dobbs being on the third-team. Jeremy Johnson has a ton of hype based on limited on-field time. Dobbs took over a team in shambles and went 4-1. Joshua Dobbs should have gotten the nod.
Where the voters got it right: Alabama and Arkansas’s second running backs not being punished, as they would start on most teams in the SEC and deserved their third-team status.
Where the voters got it wrong: Derrick Henry being on the second-team. If I am starting a college football team, Derrick Henry is one of the first running backs I call in the country, not just the SEC.
Where the voters got it right: Laquon Treadwell. There is some speculation with Treadwell due to his season-ending 2014 injury. But he is the most talented receiver in the country and deserved the nod.
Where the voters got it wrong: Pharoh Cooper should have made the first team. D’haquille Williams is a great deep threat but has not exhibited the all-around game of Cooper.
Where the voters got it right: Evan Engram is the best receiving tight end in the SEC, hands down.
Where the voters got it wrong: They didn’t. You could say O.J. Howard is more talented than Hunter Henry, but Henry has mastered the position and produces more.
Where the voters got it right: Alabama’s offensive line was not the same when Ryan Kelly went down against Ole Miss in 2014. He may not be the most imposing, but he earned the first-team nod.
Where the voters got it wrong: They didn’t. Germain Ifedi may turn out to be first-team worthy, but I’m not putting him over Tunsil or Robinson.
