Linebacker C.J. Mosley and cornerback Dee Milliner were first team defensive selections.
Quarterback A.J. McCarron and safety Robert Lester were Alabama players on the second team.
Florida had seven men selected, while Tennessee and Eastern Division champion Georgia had six each. Ten of the 14 SEC schools had a member on the first team. Florida had five first team selections, Texas A&M four.

Quarterback Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M and tailback Todd Gurley of Georgia were the only freshmen to make the honor squad with Manziel the only freshman on the first team.
The SEC will announce individual award winners Wednesday and the Freshman All-SEC Team will be announced Thursday.
