Alabama and LSU each placed a league-leading 13 representatives on the 2016 Preseason Coaches All-Southeastern Conference Football Team, the SEC announced Thursday.

This marked the 14th consecutive year of the SEC Coaches Preseason All-SEC Team. All 14 SEC schools were represented on the All-SEC team, including eight schools with six or more selections. Nine SEC schools had at least one First-Team All-SEC selection, including a conference-best six from Alabama.
