SI's 2017 Preseason All-America Teams
With the season fast approaching, Sports Illustrated is once again recognizing the best players in the country with our 2017 All-America teams. How exclusive is the list of college football’s premier players at each position? Last year’s Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson finished third in the quarterback voting and was left off both the first and second teams. Elsewhere, the leading vote-getters dovetail with this fall’s primary College Football Playoff contenders: Oklahoma, LSU, Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State all boast multiple first-team honorees. This year’s voters were Andy Staples, Bruce Feldman, Joan Niesen, Chris Johnson, Chris Burke, Jim Gorant, Mike Harris and Eric Single. An asterisk(*) next to a player’s name denotes that he was a unanimous selection.
