The twelve SEC coaches cast their ballots recently and chose an all conference first and second team. The Kentucky Wildcats were represented by three players.
Running back Derrick Locke was picked as first team running back selection. Locke had 907 yards rushing along with six touchdowns. He averaged 75 yards per game and was sixth in the SEC in rushing as a junior.
Do-it-all athlete Randall Cobb was the all-purpose player for the coaches' first team. Cobb started at wide receiver last year, but also impacted the game in a number of ways. He had 573 yards rushing with 10 touchdowns. He caught 39 passes for 447 yards and four touchdowns and he also returned punts and kicks last season.
Senior defensive end DeQuin Evans was named second team All-SEC by the coaches after a solid year. Evans had 38 tackles, 12 for loss and six sacks on the season. Evans started all season for the Wildcats after transferring from Junior College.
