The 2010 All-SEC football team consists of American football players selected to the All-Southeastern Conference (SEC) chosen by the Associated Press (AP) and the conference coaches for the 2010 Southeastern Conference football season.

The Auburn Tigers won the conference, beating the South Carolina Gamecocks 56 to 17 in the SEC Championship game. The Tigers then won a national championship, defeating the Pac-12 champion Oregon Ducks 22 to 19 in the 2011 BCS National Championship Game. Auburn led the conference with four consensus first-team All-SEC selections by both the AP and the coaches; LSU was second with three.

Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, a unanimous AP selection, won the Heisman Trophy and was voted AP SEC Offensive Player of the Year. Auburn defensive tackle Nick Fairley, also a unanimous AP selection, won the Lombardi Award and was voted AP SEC Defensive Player of the Year. LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson won the Bednarik Award.
