SEC coaches have selected nine LSU players to the 2019 preseason all-conference team, including four on the first team. 

Center Lloyd Cushenberry, safety Grant Delpit, cornerback Kristian Fulton and defensive end Rashard Lawrence were all first-team selections while guard Damien Lewis earned second-team honors. 

Receiver Justin Jefferson, linebackers Michael Divinity and Jacob Phillips and punter Zach Von Rosenberg were named to the third team.

Cushenberry and Lewis started every game last year and helped LSU’s offense average 32.4 points and 402.1 yards per game.

Jefferson led the Tigers in receptions (54), yards (875), yards per catch (16.2) and touchdowns (6) becoming the first player to lead the Tigers in every receiving category since Rueben Randle did so in 2011. 

Delpit led the SEC with five interceptions and finished second in the league with 14 passes defended as he was named a unanimous All-American.

Lawrence was named the defensive player of the game in the Fiesta Bowl and finished the season with 54 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, and 4.0 sacks.

Phillips is LSU’s top returning tackler from last season and Fulton started 10 games at cornerback. He was named a preseason All-American.

Michael Divinity finished second on the team last year in tackles for loss with 10.5. And Von Rosenberg was a second-team All-SEC honoree last year.

Take a look at the full team below.
