BATON ROUGE -- LSU placed a league-best 10 representatives, including three first-team selections, on the 2015 Preseason Coaches All-Southeastern Conference Football Teams, the league office announced on Tuesday.

The voting was done by the league coaches during the first two weeks of August. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players. Alabama joined LSU with 10 selections to represent the most of any team in the SEC.

The Tigers had three first-team picks led by running back Leonard Fournette, who was also selected to the second team as a return specialist and an all-purpose back. Senior Vadal Alexander was named first-team on the offensive line, while senior Jalen Mills was named to the first-team as a defensive back.

Other Tigers named to the all-conference preseason team include: linebacker Kendell Beckwith (2nd team), cornerback Tre'Davious White (2nd team), punter Jamie Keehn (2nd team), wide receiver Travin Dural (3rd team), and defensive tackle Davon Godchaux (3rd team).

LSU opens its season on Saturday, Sept. 5 when the Tigers host McNeese State in Tiger Stadium.

The following is a look at all three preseason All-SEC teams:
