Tennessee had three players named to the Coaches’ All-SEC Team on Tuesday afternoon.

Defensive end Derek Barnett, who led the league in sacks with 12 on the season, was UT’s lone representative on the first team. Quarterback Joshua Dobbs and return specialist Evan Berry were placed on the second team.

Barnett becomes UT’s first First-Teamer on the defensive line since 2008 Robert Ayers in 2008.

Alabama freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts got the first-team nod over Dobbs after guiding the Tide to a 12-0 regular season and an SEC title to go along with the No. 1 in the college football playoffs. Dobbs, however, had the best year of his career, completing 63.3% of his passes for 2,655 yards, 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He also added a team-high 713 yards and nine scores on the ground.

Berry, despite missing the final four games of the regular season with a knee injury, still finished the season with a 32.9 yard per kickoff return average, including a 100-yard touchdown against South Carolina.
