Florida junior cornerback CJ Henderson, who was nowhere to be found on the Associated Press All-SEC team released Monday, is on the first team of the coaches’ All-SEC team that came out Tuesday.

 Henderson is one of three Gators on the first team. The others are defensive end Jon Greenard and tight end Kyle Pitts, both of whom were also on the AP first team. Senior linebacker David Reese is also on the coaches’ second team.

 Henderson, who announced last week that he’s entering the NFL draft and won’t be participating in the Gators’ bowl game, had a solid junior season in which he broke up 11 passes and totaled 33 tackles, including a sack and three tackles for losses. He did not have any interceptions.
