Three UGA players make coaches all-SEC first-team

Justin Houston is a first-team All-SEC pick by the coaches, just as he was by the media. And the Georgia junior was joined this time by two teammates: Offensive lineman Clint Boling and kicker Blair Walsh also made the first-team.

Three other Georgia players made the second-team: Receiver A.J. Green, tight end Orson Charles and punter Drew Butler.

Georgia's six members tied for third-most in the league, along with Arkansas and South Carolina. Alabama led the way with 12 selections, followed by LSU with eight.

The coaches were not allowed to vote for players on their own team.

In a nice gesture, the late Nick Bell, who passed away from cancer in November, was named to the team as an honorary captain.

Here's the full list, copied and pasted from the SEC release:

Always a lot of talk about the state of Georgia producing the most high school talent. I believe Georgia has a lot of depth but was surprised to see relatively few first team all conference players from Georgia. Perhaps that is why we don't have more championships...the state has a lot of talent in state but not necessarily the highest level of talent.
