Safety Thomas Davis was also named a first-team All-American by the AFCA. LSU topped all Southeastern Conference teams with three selections to the first team – center Ben Wilkerson, defensive end Marcus Spears and cornerback Corey Webster. The SEC had eight selections overall.
David Pollack was also named one of three finalists for the inaugural Lott Trophy, which is intended to recognize playing performance and off-field character equally. Wisconsin's Leonhard and Texas' Derrick Johnson are the other finalists. Pollack had 48 tackles during the regular season and led the Bulldogs with 9.5 sacks. He has 33 sacks in his career, the most in Georgia history. He also is still a candidate for the Lombardi Award, the Nagurski Award, the Bednarick Award and the Hendricks Award.
Davis was Georgia's leading tackler during the regular season (73) despite missing half the Florida game and all of the Kentucky game due to an injury. His average of 7.3 tackles per game ranked third in the SEC.
