The SEC released its selections for the all-conference teams as voted on by the 14 head coaches and LSU had eight different players recognized.

Sophomores Cade York and Derek Stingley Jr. were named First-Team All-SEC; Ali Gaye and Zach Von Rosenberg were named Second-Team All-SEC; and Kayshon Boutte, Arik Gilbert, BJ Ojulari and Elias Ricks were all placed on the All-Freshmen team.

York was 18-21 on field goals, highlighted by an LSU record 57-yard game winning kick against Florida. Stingley had 27 tackles and five pass break ups in only seven games.

Von Rosenberg had one of the better punting seasons in LSU history. He led the league in punts downed inside the 20 with 27 and 50-yard punts with 18. Gaye had 32 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss—tied for sixth in the SEC—and two sacks.

Boutte made the Freshman team as both a receiver and a return specialist. He caught 45 passes for 735 yards and 5 touchdowns, and set an SEC single game record with 308 yards receiving against Ole Miss.

Gilbert was a top-option for LSU prior to opting out. Gilbert caught 35 passes for 368 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Ojulari and Ricks were impressive in their first year on campus. Ricks had four interceptions and returned two for touchdowns, both tying him for the most among all SEC defenders; Ojulari was a disruptive player in limited snaps, picking up five tackles for loss and four sacks. The four sacks tied Ojulari with a whole host of other players for sixth in the conference and was second among freshmen.
