Leonard Fournette, Myles Garrett headline preseason All-SEC team

The SEC has been one of the more dominant conferences over the last decade or so and it looks like they will be much of the same this year. On Friday, the media released its preseason All-SEC teams for the 2016 season, which was headlined by players like LSU running back Leonard Fournette and Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett.

The teams were pretty loaded with it not coming as a surprise with Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly and Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley leading the offense along with Fournette.

The defense was headed up by Garrett, Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster and Florida cornerback Jalen Tabor.

For all three teams, the two favorites in the conference this year, Alabama and LSU, both landed 10 players apiece. Georgia came in a close second with seven selections this year.

It should be an exciting year for the SEC this year and I would expect Leonard Fournette and Myles Garrett to be some big pieces in the conference along with all the other players named this year.
