Alabama placed a league-leading 15 representatives on the 2017 Preseason Coaches All-Southeastern Conference Football Team, the SEC announced Wednesday.

This marks the 15th 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 five or more selections. Nine SEC schools had at least one First-Team All-SEC selection, including a conference-best nine from Alabama.

Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.

The SEC begins its 2017 season Thursday, Aug. 31 when Arkansas plays host to Florida A&M in Little Rock on the SEC Network.
