The SEC players chosen for the team were Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough, Alabama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, Georgia defensive lineman Trenton Thompson, LSU linebacker Tashawn Bower and Florida defensive back Chauncey Gardner.
Earning honorable mention honors for the SEC were Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs, Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams, Tennessee defensive lineman Derek Barnett, Alabama linebackers Ryan Anderson and Reuben Foster, LSU linebacker Arden Key, Alabama defensive backs Anthony Averett and Minkah Fitzpatrick, and Vanderbilt returner Kalija Lipscomb.
