SEC Signing Day dream team

Big Ten Signing Day Dream Team
Take a look at the teams represented on the 2008 Signing Day Dream Team in the SEC and it becomes very clear which teams are sitting atop the final team rankings.
The nation's No. 1 ranked team, Alabama, has eight representatives on the SEC Dream Team. Florida, sitting at No. 3 in the team rankings has four representatives on the team while Georgia is sitting right behind Alabama with six representatives.
Aside from the strong Georgia, Alabama and Florida flavor, the SEC West has a strong presence in the secondary and in the backfield where De'Anthony Curtis and Enrique Davis team up and LSU commit Patrick Johnson leads the defensive backs.
