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.
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 QB: Jake Fromm, Georgia
Lamical Perine, Florida
Perine churned out 130 rushing yards on 14 carries in Week 6, and 121 of those yards came after contact.

Brian Herrien, Georgia
Herrien carried the ball 11 times in his Week 6 game against Tennessee, and he churned out 88 yards, 74 yards after contact, five first downs, one touchdown, one run of 10-plus yards and two forced missed tackles on the day.
Second-Team RB: Clyde Edwards-Helaire, LSU
Freddie Swain, Florida
Swain was electric with his ball in his hands on Saturday. Targeted nine times, he caught six passes for 146 yards, with 80 of those yards coming after the catch, equating to an average of 13.3 yards after the catch per reception.
Second-Team WR: Marquez Callaway, Tennessee

Second-Team WR: Seth Williams, Auburn

Second-Team TE: Thaddeus Moss, LSU
Austin Deculus, LSU
Deculus did allow three hurries from his 41 pass-blocking snaps, but he was an absolute force in the run game. He earned a 78.4 run-blocking grade for his efforts — the fourth-best mark among all offensive tackles in Week 6.
Second-Team OT: Devin Cochran, Vanderbilt

Second-Team DI: Benito Jones, Ole Miss
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
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
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
Eric Stokes, Georgia
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.

Delpit was kept on his toes at the back end of the defense in Week 6, and he saw three targets into his primary coverage. He allowed just one catch for eight yards and recorded an interception to cap off an excellent all-around performance.
Second-Team S: Richard LeCounte, Georgia
Jaylon Jones, Ole Miss
The Ole Miss cornerback allowed just one catch from six targets in coverage, and the only reception he did allow made it as far as the line of scrimmage. Jones ended a mightily productive game having allowed a passer rating of just 39.6 on throws into his coverage.
