(Missouri Football App) – Several Tigers have been selected for the Coaches’ Preseason All SEC Team.

The squad is made up of the players projected to be the best in conference during the upcoming season. The SEC coaches voted to select the players but they could not vote for their own players.

Senior defensive back E.J. Gaines received second-team honors. Junior Marcus Murphy, who returned 3 kickoffs and 1 punt for touchdowns in 2012 was named a second-team specialist.

Sophomore wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, who was under utilized in his freshman year, earned third team honors, as was offensive lineman Justin Britt. Place kicker Andrew Baggett was named a third team specialist.
