Phil Steele’s all-Americans . . .

This from Phil Steele, the preseason magazine guru:

“I was a contributing member on the Football Writers Association All American Team. I have opted to honor the selections that were made by the 14 member committee and my first team is the exact same as the FWAA All American team with the following exceptions. I have added an extra WR on offense and LB on defense and instead of a return specialist I have KR and PR. The FWAA team is only a first team so the rest of the All American teams (2nd 3rd and 4th) are my own selections.”

(The first through fourth teams are listed in a row.)
