2012 SEC Predictions: Florida Slated To Finish Third In SEC East

The media has deliberated and released the results of their predictions for the 2012 SEC football season including the favorites to win the SEC. The Florida Gators finished third in the rankings of the SEC East behind the Georgia Bulldogs and South Carolina Gamecocks, respectively, while also finishing seventh in the full SEC rankings.

Also released on Thursday were the selections for the preseason 2012 All-SEC team with just one first-team selection for the Gators. Only kicker Caleb Sturgis earned a first-time selection while three UF players found themselves on the second-team defense. Sharrif Floyd, Jon Bostic and Matt Elam each earned the honor while returner Andre Debose earned a spot on the second-team specialist ranks.

Rounding out the list of Gators was Dominique Easley and Jelani Jenkins, along with Xavier Nixon who was the sole offensive player from UF to earn All-SEC recognition.
