Coleman, Marks earn SEC honors

Defensive end Antonio Coleman and defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks were named to the All-SEC team Monday.

Coleman made the first team.

Marks, surprisingly, was named honorable mention. I'm not saying he's the best tackle in the league or anything, but honorable mention? Wow.

**********

Coleman led Auburn with six sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss this season, and those numbers ranked tied for fifth and sixth in the SEC, respectively. He finished the season with 46 tackles (29 solo, 17 assists) and had a team-high 13 quarterback hurries, as well as a forced fumble and a pass break-up. He was named the SEC’s Defensive Lineman of the Week following Auburn’s 14-12 victory over Tennessee Sept. 27 after collecting four tackles including a sack and 1.5 tackles for loss.

It marked the third straight season that Auburn has had a defensive end named to the All-SEC first team, as Quentin Groves earned the honor in 2006 and 2007.

Marks tied for 10th in the SEC with 10 tackles for loss, and finished the season with 32 tackles overall (15 solo, 17 assists). He also collected two quarterback sacks, two pass break-ups, two quarterback hurries and a blocked field goal.

Jay, I concur on Marks. It seems like he was slighted a bit. I know there are other good tackles in the league but he was the one constant on a banged up defensive line.

Yep. No idea what happened there.

I am shocked about Marks, although this may have to do with him missing playing time. He looked like the best tackle in the league earlier in the season. I do think his productivity dropped of as the year went on, probably due to being banged up and playing so many snaps.

I have no idea how well other tackles did, but I don't think Marks did any better than a Josh Thompson would have, much less a first round draft pick. I know he has the reputation, I just don't know if he quite lived up to it this year.

PROPS to both guys. They deserved the honor! Sen also did a fantastic job as a featured author through out the season in the sporting news today

I checked every draft board known to man over the weekend, They all had Marks in the 1st round because its such a weak year for Defensive tackles. None showed Coleman in the 1st round or the 2nd Round.

I think Marks goes and Coleman stays. But this is the last year before the rookie salary cap kicks in so its a year to get the money when you can.
