Four Auburn players earned AP All-SEC honors on Monday, including three first-team selections.

Defensive tackle Derrick Brown, defensive end Marlon Davidson and linebacker K.J. Britt were all named to the AP’s All-SEC first team, while safety Jeremiah Dinson picked up a second-team nod. The three first-team selections for Auburn were tied with Alabama for most on the defensive side of the ball.

Brown, who was also named the AP’s SEC Defensive Player of the Year on Monday, finished the season with 50 total tackles, including 12.5 for a loss and four sacks. He added four pass breakups and a pair of forced fumbles, both on strip-sacks, as well as two fumble returns. Davidson had 45 total tackles in 11 games and tied Brown with 12.5 tackles for a loss. The senior defensive end led Auburn with 7.5 sacks this season and added five hurries, a pass breakups and two forced fumbles -- both of which also came on strip-sacks.

Britt had 61 total tackles, with nine for a loss and 2.5 sacks this season. The junior linebacker also had one pass breakup and a forced fumble for Auburn’s defense. Dinson, meanwhile, led the team with 79 total tackles, including 4.5 for a loss and two sacks. The senior safety added two interceptions on the season, as well as one pass breakup and a forced fumble.
