Three Dawgs total on the two teams.
Hard to argue with that.

I am suprised that Theus made it. He was switched to right tackle late in the season in a move that I thought was done because he was not able to block the other teams best pass rusher.
Sanders will be on the first team next year if he improves as much between 2015 and 2016 as he did from 2014 to 2015.
Floyd is a DGD and I think he will do well in the NFL as a thrid down pass rusher and maybe coverage guy if he is given more opportunity and coaching
John Theus may be thd most maligned first team all conference player in decades. The guys who coach for a living appreciate him more than Theus’s team’s fans.
“meaning no player from a Georgia defense that is in the top 10 nationally in total defense and scoring defense was picked on the first team”
How is that logical?
I think a big reason for those defensive rankings are because we played against some atrocious offenses. Here are some rankings of our opponents offenses according to cfbstats.com (note: there are 128 teams):
Scoring Offense: (UGA= #84)
127, 124, 111, 110, 98, 95, 78, 62, 36, 33, 32
Total Offense: (UGA= #75)
125, 124, 117, 109, 100, 96, 89, 81, 53, 49, 49
Passing Yards: (UGA= #103)
128, 124, 114, 113, 108, 93, 86, 85, 81, 78, 73
Passing Efficiency: (UGA= #59)
128, 120, 117, 114, 109, 95, 85, 80, 60, 57, 47
Rushing Offense: (UGA= #36)
125, 120, 114, 86, 86, 78, 42, 27, 21, 7, 1
The defense did not face a single offense that was in the top 57% in passing yardage and only 3 teams defended less pass attempts.
Must have been a very down years in the conference for OTs
Thought I might see Ramsey as 2nd team punter…..
Note that 3 Bama OLs are either first team or second team. That is why the Bama O is so good.
And 2 first team DLs as well. Seems about right.
Theus was moved because Pyke wasn’t getting it done. Kolton was meh on the right side. Theus was versatile enough to make the move, so he did.
Yes, I thought Theus looked better after moving to the right side. Things just weren’t working out on the left, and Houston was a liability at RT. Maybe RT is just Theus’ best spot.
Theus wasn’t getting it done as well. Bama and UF abused him. I don’t see the logic that the 8th ranked defense has very little representation. Probably all Richt’s fault. I’m sure that’s what Chili thinks………….
I thought Theus played very well against both Alabama and Florida. And, this is the coaches’ team, so they would know. I saw Theus get beat for a sack by the Mizzou d-end, but that was the only time I saw him get out-classed. Wouldn’t surprise me if he plays RT on Sundays for a long time.
So neither of the SEC finalist for the Butkus award make first team all sec and the one from LSU does not even make the second team.
Our D was better than our O, but I’m not surprised that Floyd was only second team. He was still making many of the same mistakes from years past, namely getting sucked inside on so many plays. I know he says he won’t be back, and there’s an age issue, but I’d like to see if he could be coached up or whether he’s just peaked.
Malcom Mitchell should have made in on effort alone. No QB, no offensive idendity, never complained, played his butt off. Will be yet another Dog who succeeds in the NFL
