As an update to the previous post, check it out:
SEC football coaches are in agreement when it comes to how Georgia’s Knowshon Moreno stacks up among their conference’s running backs.

They unanimously voted the redshirt sophomore to the preseason coaches All-SEC team released on Monday.

Eight other Georgia players landed on either the first, second or third team.

Senior linebacker Dannell Ellerbe was the only other first-team selection for the Bulldogs.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford, wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, defensive tackle Geno Atkins and cornerback Asher Allen were second-team picks. Defensive tackle Jeff Owens, linebacker Rennie Curran and punter Brian Mimbs were third-team selections.

Defending national champion LSU (14 selections) and Florida (10) were the only teams with more players selected than Georgia.

Moreno, who finished last season fourth all-time among SEC freshman with 1,334 rushing yards, was one of seven unanimous selections. The others were offensive linemen Andre Smith of Alabama, Jonathan Luigs of Arkansas, Michael Oher of Ole Miss and Anthony Parker of Tennessee and defensive lineman Greg Hardy of Ole Miss and linebacker Brandon Spikes of Florida. Coaches could not vote for their own players, meaning a unanimous selection was listed on 11 ballots.

The media will vote this week for its All-SEC team, which will be released Friday from Hoover, Ala.
