Four teams of All-Americans with a Pac-12-focus

NCAA Football: Washington at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Four All-American teams with a Pac-12-focus.

First Team


QB Jake Browning So. Washington - Browning had more than 40 touchdowns while leading his team to 11 regular season wins. Browning somehow was one of the nation’s most-prolific and most-efficient quarterbacks at the same time.

RB D’Onta Foreman Jr. Texas

RB Dalvin Cook Jr. Florida State

WR Dede Westbrook Sr. Oklahoma

WR John Ross Jr. Washington - Ross was the most-unstoppable player out West all season and probably in the whole country. He had more than 15 touchdowns with teams putting almost their entire defensive focus on him much of the season.

TE Jake Butt Sr. Michigan

OL Pat Elflein Sr. Ohio State

OL Ethan Pocic Sr. LSU

OL Cam Robinson Jr.

OL Connor Williams So. Texas

OL Chad Wheeler Sr. USC - His fourth year as a starter on the line for Wheeler, he solidified himself as an all-time Trojan great. He gave Sam Darnold great protection and was a monster in run blocking.


DL Jonathan Allen Sr. Alabama

DL Derek Barnett Jr. Tennessee

DL DeMarcus Walker Sr. Florida State

DL Myles Garrett Jr. Texas A&M

LB Tim Williams Sr. Alabama

LB Jabril Peppers Jr. Michigan

LB Reuben Foster Sr. Alabama

DB Sidney Jones Jr. Washington - I’m going straight-up Pac-12 for the first-team All-American defensive backs. Jones locked down half the field all season.

DB Chidobe Awuzie Sr. Colorado - He was the center of the stingy Colorado defense. A physical corner who locked down receivers all season.

DB Budda Baker Jr. Washington - The best range of any safety in the nation. He put it all together this season and turned into the nation’s best safety.

DB Adoree’ Jackson Jr. USC - Maybe the nation’s best athlete was impossible to throw against because of his closing speed.

Special Teams

K Zane Gonzalez Sr. Arizona State - Capped off an excellent career with a great season.

P JK Scott Jr. Alabama

R Adoree’ Jackson Jr. USC - Took back two kickoffs and two punts for scores.

R Quadree Henderson So. Pittsburgh

3rd Team


QB Lamar Jackson So. Louisville

RB Jeremy McNichols Jr. Boise State

RB Christian McCaffrey Jr. Stanford - 1,600 plus yards rushing/receiving and 16 touchdowns. That’s a dream season for anyone other than McCaffrey.

OL Erik Magnuson Sr. Michigan

OL Adam Bisnowaty Sr. Pittsburgh

LB Ben Boulware Sr. Clemson

LB Kendell Beckwith Sr. LSU

DB Tavarus McFadden So. Florida State

RB Brian Hill Jr. Wyoming

RB Derrius Guice So. LSU

WR Gabe Marks Sr. Washington State - Falk’s favorite target was especially deadly in the red zone this season with more than 10 touchdown catches.

WR Dante Pettis Jr. Washington - Another red zone monster. Pettis has nearly 15 touchdown receptions and also threw one.

TE Michael Roberts Sr. Toledo

OL Zach Banner Sr. USC - The 6’9 monster owned the right edge for USC for the whole year again.

OL Coleman Shelton Jr. Washington - The center man for Washington’s high-octane offense was near flawless all season.

OL Isaac Asiata Sr. Utah - A powerful interior lineman who was one of the best run blockers in the nation.

OL Cody O’Connell Jr. Washington State - An Outland Trophy finalist and one of the best-graded linemen all season.
