Missouri’s SEC Media Days representatives announced

The trio of players to represent Missouri at next week’s SEC Media Days were announced on Wednesday.

(Drum roll please.)

The lucky winners are...

Missouri went all-senior with its athletes, so if you’re looking for reasons why, say, Larry Rountree III or Albert Okwuegbunam were omitted, that’s probably a good one. Of course, this also leaves out players like Johnathon Johnson (who is 883 yards shy of Missouri’s all-time receiving record) — but not bringing Bryant would be a stupid move when he is still THE story about Missouri’s 2019 football team.

Here’s a full list of past Missouri representatives at SEC Media Days:

2012 — CB EJ Gaines, OT Eric Fisher, WR TJ Moe

2013 — QB James Franklin, WR L’Damian Washington, LB Andrew Wilson

2014 — OL Evan Boehm, DE Markus Golden, QB Maty Mauk

2015 — QB Maty Mauk, OL Evan Boehm, CB Kenya Dennis

2016 — TE Sean Culkin, DE Charles Harris, LB Michael Scherer

2017 — LB Eric Beisel, QB Drew Lock, WR J’Mon Moore

2018 — QB Drew Lock, LB Terez Hall, DT Terry Beckner Jr.

2019 — QB Kelly Bryant, LB Cale Garrett, CB DeMarkus Acy

Let’s break that down by position:

Offensive total: 13

QB: 6

WR: 3

TE: 1

OL: 3

Defensive total: 11

DE: 2

DT: 1

LB: 5

CB: 3

I’m honestly surprised that Missouri has had as many cornerbacks as it has defensive linemen. Also, for all the success Missouri has had at running back since joining the SEC, it’s the lone offensive position group to not have media day representation.

Of course, Larry Rountree could likely break that trend if he stays for his senior year — please, Larry, stay for your senior year.

Finally, there’s the safety position. Missouri has some potential options at the position in the next two years or so, but that’s the position group absence that probably makes the most sense.

SEC Media Days begin Monday, July 15 in Hoover, Ala. Missouri’s contingent will meet with the media on that day. The entire event lasts until Thursday, July 19.
