The Sports Illustrated affiliate sites of the Southeastern Conference recently voted on their preseason All-SEC teams.

In terms of total amount of players selected between the first team and the second team, Alabama and Georgia led the pack with 11 players selected each. LSU wasn't far behind, coming in at third with 10 players selected.

Two Mississippi State players were named to the second-team, with wide receiver Jaden Walley and offensive lineman Charles Cross both making the cut.

As just a sophomore, Walley has already made a name for himself in Starkville. He set the school's single-season record for receiving yardage by a freshman, also recording four consecutive performances with 100 yards or more.

Cross is also a player who has gained recognition, labeled as a first-rounder in several early mocks ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Here's a look at the full list of teams:
