Hog fans, you have reason to smile about your Razorbacks here in July, with about 50 days still left to the kickoff of the 2012 season. The coaches have named ten of our guys to their pre-season all SEC list. Not surprisingly, the Hogs led all other teams with the number of players selected for the offensive teams. First team members include Cobi Hamilton, Knile Davis, and Tyler Wilson. Second team members are Chris Gragg and Alvin Bailey. Travis Swanson landed as a third team selection. On defense, well, the coaches are not as impressed, haha. Just Alonzo Highsmith, a second team member. Yet the Hogs are well represented on special teams. Dennis Johnson lands at first team. And Dylan Breeding and Zach Hocker are on the third team. I would have put Hocker on the first team, but at least he was recognized, and rightly so. There you have it, the Magnificent Ten. Let us all hope they more than live up to their pre-season hype and all land on the post-season teams along with some unmentioned teammates as of today. Congratulations, all! PS: Only Alabama & LSU had more players named to the teams with each having eleven selected.
