BATON ROUGE - LSU QB Jayden Daniels topped a list of 11 Tigers named to the preseason All-SEC teams at SEC Media Days. 

Daniels is joined on the first-team offense by junior wide receiver Malik Nabers and sophomore offensive tackle Will Campbell. Tight end Mason Taylor earned a spot on the second-team, while offensive tackle Emery Jones was named third-team. 

Defensively, a trio of Tigers were named to the first-team led by sophomore linebacker Harold Perkins. He was joined by defensive linemen Mekhi Wingo and Maason Smith. Defensive back Major Burns was named to the third-team.

Additionally, members of the media cast their votes for what colleges are expected to win their respective divisions and the conference as a whole. 

Alabama and LSU led polling for the SEC West, with each school earning 165 and 117 first-place votes respectively. Georgia is expected to run away with the SEC East title, earning 265 first-place votes and leading overall SEC title projections with 181 points. Alabama and LSU ranked second and third in overall SEC polling, earning 62 and 31 points respectively.

However, there is a gap in expectations for those three teams and the rest of the SEC. Tennessee and Vanderbilt tied at fourth in overall polling with five points a piece.
