Georgia LB Jarvis Jones Among SB Nation's All-America Team Selections

Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Jarvis Jones is among 12 SEC players making the cut for SB Nation's inaugural All-America team, compiled by the mothership's friendly college football staff.

The redshirt sophomore was a finalist for the Dick Butkus and voted the team's most valuable defensive player this season. Jones has started all 13 games and leads the Bulldogs with 69 tackles, including 19.5 TFL, 13.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and 42 QBPs. Jones is first in the SEC and third in NCAA in sacks (1.04 per game) and first in the SEC and tenth in the entire nation in TFL (1.50 per game). So, he good.

Joining Jones are Luke Kuechly of Boston College and Dont'a Hightower of Alabama, one of 12 SEC players picked by the SN Nation staff, by far the most of any conference.
