All-time SEC team drafts

By Edward Aschoff

If you had a chance to draft your favorite players of all-time for one of your favorite teams, who would you take? Who's the best to ever play at your university?

It's not as easy as it sounds, but a few of us got together to draft our all-time squads for three teams in the SEC -- Alabama, Florida and Georgia.

I helped the boys over at ESPN's GatorNation with the all-time Florida draft, while Chris Low worked with TideNation for the Alabama draft. It was fun, but I have to admit that my age showed at times.

With my first pick (third overall) I took Mr. Do-it-all Percy Harvin, while Chris selected linebacker Derrick Thomas with the second overall pick in the Alabama draft.

Here's my all-time UF team:

QB: Danny Wuerffel
RB: Errict Rhett
RB: Earnest Graham
WR: Percy Harvin
WR: Reidel Anthony
WR: Jacquez Green
C: Bill Carr
OL: Mike Pearson

DL: David Galloway
LB: Brandon Spikes
LB: Clifford Charlton
LB: Jevon Kearse
CB: Lito Sheppard
S: Reggie Nelson

CB: Janoris Jenkins

Here's Chris' all-time Bama team:

QB: Joe Namath
RB: Bobby Humphrey
RB: Trent Richardson
WR: Julio Jones
WR: David Palmer
WR: Amari Cooper
