BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The University of Florida football team had eight players selected to the 2016 SEC Media Days All-SEC Team Friday. The list of eight Gators was comprised of one first-team member, five second-team honorees and two third-team selections. The squads were chosen by those in attendance at the conference's annual week-long media days.

The Bulldogs had six players make the All-SEC teams, two on the first team, two on the second team and 4 on the third team.

The lone member of the first team for the Gators was junior cornerback Jalen Tabor, while the five second-teamers were offensive linemen Martez Ivey and David Sharpe, defensive lineman Bryan Cox, Jr., linebacker Jarrad Davis and punter Johnny Townsend. Garnering third-team All-SEC accolades was defensive lineman Cece Jefferson and safety Marcus Maye.

Despite just starting to practice due to a knee injury, Georgia running back Nick Chubb was named to the first team.  Joining Chubb is offensive lineman Greg Pike on the first team.
