College Football Week 6: Eckrich SEC Team of the Week

The college football season is nearing the midway point for most teams and after a full slate of games on Saturday, we at PFF and our team of over 500 analysts has dissected and graded every player on every snap of every game to bring you the most detailed and valid set of picks you can find anywhere.

The Week 6 SEC Eckrich Team of the Week powered by PFF saw some impressive performances and, of course, the strength of opponent also factored into the overall selections as did the PFF player grades.

Quarterback

Joe Burrow, LSU

The standout signal-caller had himself yet another dominant game at the helm for LSU, completing 27-of-38 attempts for 341 yards, five touchdowns and one interception in his Week 6 victory over Utah State. He was lights out throwing down the field in this one, as three of his completions and 101 of his passing yards came from passes that traveled at least 20 yards in the air.

Second-Team RB: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, LSU

Wide Receiver

Second-Team OT: Devin Cochran, Vanderbilt

Offensive Guard

Justin Shaffer, Georgia

The Georgia guard was a force to be reckoned with as a pass-blocker this week. He didn't allow a single pressure on any of his 32 pass-blocking snaps, and he ended the game with an 86.3 pass-blocking grade.

Center

Second-Team DI: Benito Jones, Ole Miss

Defensive Interior

Austrian Robinson, Ole Miss

Robinson earned grades of at least 75.0 as a run defender, as a tackler and as a pass-rusher in Week 6. He recorded six total pressures across his 24 pass-rushing snaps and added a defensive stop against the run for good measure.

Second-Team DI: Jordan Elliott, Missouri

Linebacker

Cale Garrett, Missouri

Garrett shined bright in coverage against Troy in Week 6. While he did allow two receptions in coverage, those receptions went for a grand total of -6 yards, and he ended up picking off two passes on the day.

Second-Team LB: Zakoby McClain, Auburn

Linebacker

Patrick Queen, LSU

Another standout performance in coverage earns a spot on the Eckrich SEC Team of The Week. Patrick Queen's coverage stat line is an impressive one: He allowed four catches from four targets for a total of -12 yards, and he left the game having recorded a whopping six defensive stops.

Second-Team LB: Nick Bolton, Missouri

Targeted eight times in coverage against Tennessee, Stokes allowed just one catch and broke up two passes, allowing just 0 yards into his coverage on the day.
