SEC Media days are over. The votes for the conference projections have been tallied — and so have the votes for the All-SEC squads. The Southeastern Conference media members voted on first, second and third preseason all-conference teams this week in Hoover during media days.

It probably won’t shock you to see a lack of orange on these lists. Entering year two under Jeremy Pruitt, Tennessee is in the middle of a massive rebuild. The Vols went 5-7 in 2018, but do return 17 starters this season.

Just one of those 17 starters was featured in the All-SEC teams released today. It was senior receiver Marquez Callaway, who made the second team as a return specialist.

The most notable omission for Tennessee was senior edge rusher Darrell Taylor, who put up eight sacks in 2018.

Here’s the entire list.
