Razorbacks land four players on preseason All-SEC teams

·1 min read

The SEC Media Days picks are always the most reasonable ones.

Forget Tim Tebow’s or Jordan Rodgers’ or Phil Steele’s. The SEC Media Days picks are reflective of the league’s assembled media as a whole, giving the selections both perspective and distance because any homer picks are wiped out elsewhere.

As such, the selection of four Arkansas players to the preseason All-SEC teams is not just fair, but reflective of the Hogs’ talent.

Center Ricky Stromberg and safety Jalen Catalon were named first-team All-SEC players while linebacker Bumper Pool was a second-teamer and guard Brady Latham was a third-team selection.

Catalon and Stromberg are largely considered Arkansas’ best pro prospects for next year’s NFL draft as well potential All-Americans. Catalon was a Freshman All-American two seasons but injury limited him to just six games last year.
