A freshman receiver All-American. Michael Crabtree did so much to make this list. He was amazing when I watched him.

It's funny because Brandon Flowers didn't make the All-ACC first team. He was on the second team yet he makes All-American first team. Kind of odd.

His teammate on the otherside Harris from VT made it onto the All-ACC first team. Link. (http://www.wral.com/sports/football/ncaa/story/2088250/)

I'm not saying that Flowers doesn't deserve it...I think he is the 5th best corner in this draft.

Yeah, macho should've been on here as well, the guy was a beast on defense & ST.

Notice that there are no safeties. Just 4 cornerbacks. What's up with that?

The S pool is very weak this year. The best S in the draft didn't have a great year, but he still projects a lot to ST. The next best FS, Williams from OU, didn't have that great a year either. The best FS in the nation production wise, and one of my favorite defensive players who will not be a first rounder and will be lucky to be a first day guy, Craig Steltz from LSU should have been an All-American over Lowrey and Flowers IMO.

a step down from Landry but then who isn't :winky:

not that he deserves on this list but I was impressed with Missouri FS William Moore in that game against Kansas (sorry ytf had to throw that in).

really proud of Selvie and Jenkins being the first USF players to be named All-American.

Eh, I hate everyone and everything about Mizzu, but I am in such a weird spot this weekend with who I want to win the Big 12. If Mizzu wins, we get into the Fiesta Bowl, but they would still win and go to the title game.

Also, the next great FS at LSU is Chad Jones. Kid is money. The Astros couldn't sign him, but he is a future first round pick. Book it.

Yes, and this wasn't the NFL All American team. In fact, if you are looking at performance, the two backs should've been Smith and Forte since they both clearly had the best seasons.

lmao Kevin Smith has 2448 yards rushing this year. he could break Barry Sanders' record in the bowl game. insanity.

This guy runs hard, he will do well in the NFL. The guy is a natural runner.

I think they didn't put safeties on there because it was pre-planned, not because there aren't very many good ones this year. But I really don't know

BTW Flowers had a great game in the ACC Championship. I would be EXTREMELY happy with him at corner for the Texans, he is the full package at CB.

Adibi also had a fantastic day. The guy can play all the LB positions. He is a very smart player as well. I wouldn't even mind drafting this guy in the first. Our front four could be quite a strength with him. I think he fits pretty well here too. The only problem with that is that you take him over a plethera of deserving cornerbacks and possibly over some deserving offensive lineman as well.

yeah it's pretty silly to call Smith a "nice college back." he'll be a better player in the pros than Jonathan Stewart. both should be great though.

haven't you heard? Jonathan Stewart is the greatest running back of all time.
