Alabama placed an SEC-high six players on the preseason watch list for the 2012 Rotary Lombardi Award.

Center Barrett Jones, guard Chance Warmack, offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, noseguard Jesse Williams and linebackers C.J. Mosley and Nico Johnson were all on the list.

The Rotary Lombardi Award is given annually to the top lineman or linebacker in college football. Eligibility for the Rotary Lombardi Award is limited to: 1) offensive or defensive end-to-end down linemen who set up no farther than 10 yards to the left or right of the ball and 2) linebackers who set up no farther than 5 yards deep from the line of scrimmage.

Below is a complete list of the SEC players making the preseason cut. Among the most surprising omissions were LSU defensive tackle Bennie Logan, Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley, Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore and Mississippi State defensive tackle Josh Boyd. The list will be periodically revised until the first round of voting is completed.
