Sophomore running back Todd Gurley and senior tight end Arthur Lynch highlighted the Georgia football players selected to the Preseason All-SEC Team on Thursday.

Both Gurley and Lynch were named First-Team members, while the Bulldogs as a whole were predicted to win their third straight Southeastern Conference East Division title by media members attending SEC Media in Hoover, Ala. Reigning national champion Alabama was predicted to again win the conference.

As a freshman last season, Gurley rushed for 1,385 yards and 17 touchdowns while making 12 starts. He became just the second true freshman to surpass 1,000 yards on the ground.

Lynch returns for one more season with the Bulldogs as the team's top tight end. He made 13 starts in 2012, catching 24 passes for 431 yards and three touchdowns.

The complete list of Georgia players named Preseason All-SEC are as follows:

First-Team: RB Todd Gurley, TE Arthur Lynch

Second-Team: RB Keith Marshall, OG Chris Burnette, OLB Jordan Jenkins, CB Damian Swann

Third-Team: QB Aaron Murray, WR Malcolm Mitchell, DL Garrison Smith
