The parade of preseason magazines begins this month, but if you follow my coverage, you know that I value Phil Steele above all others.
Steele released his preseason All-SEC teams today, and it's not pretty for Kentucky. The Wildcats had three players picked. Middle linebacker Avery Williamson was a second team pick, defensive end Bud Dupree was a fourth team pick, and punter Landon Foster was a fourth team pick.
Steele chooses two running backs, three receivers, four defensive linemen and four linebackers. He also chooses both kick and punt returners, so there are 28 players on each of the four teams. For the full lineup, click here.
Kentucky had the fewest players across the four teams, among 112 total selections. Here are the total picks by team:
Ole Miss: 11
Mississippi State: 7
Texas A&M: 5
South Carolina: 4
