Coaches name five Mizzou players on preseason All-SEC team
AUG 22, 2013 2:50p ET
The league announced the coaches' preseason All-SEC teams, and five Tigers were named -- two to the second team, three to the third. Specifically:
* E.J. Gaines, DB, senior (second team)
* Marcus Murphy, return specialist, junior (second team)
* Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, sophomore (third team)
* Justin Britt, OL, senior (third team)
* Andrew Baggett, PK, sophomore (third team)
Meanwhile, Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M was delegated to second-team status by the coaches -- perhaps a result of all the negative publicity and possible NCAA rules infractions surrounding the sophomore. SEC coaches tabbed Georgia's Aaron Murray as the first-team choice and Alabama's AJ McCarron as the third-team pick.
