COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREVIEW 2006: PRESEASON ALL-AMERICA TEAMS
August 9, 2006

We've previewed each of the individual conferences and told you who the top players are in each, but who are the best athletes in the country? The SCS.com staff has come together in recent weeks to compile a list of exactly 52 college football players who will represent this fall's Preseason First and Second Team All-America squads. Eight of the NCAA's eleven conferences are represented, as are thirty-four different teams. Southern Cal leads the way with four players selected, while Arizona State, California, and Ohio State follow with three each. Nine other squads had two athletes chosen.     Preview Home

FIRST TEAM PRESEASON ALL-AMERICA

OFFENSE
QB Brady Quinn Notre Dame
A legitimate Heisman candidate this fall, Quinn is fresh off a nine-win season in which he threw for nearly 4000 yards and 32 touchdowns. Having a top-flight WR like Samardzija doesn't hurt things, either.
RB Michael Bush Louisville
RB Adrian Peterson Oklahoma
Both powerful runners, this pair combined for over 2200 yards and 37 touchdowns on the ground last season. Each has hopes of leading his squad to the BCS this fall as well.
WR Dwayne Jarrett Southern Cal
WR Jeff Samardzija Notre Dame
TE Zach Miller Arizona State
Jarrett will be challenged with the presence of a new QB this fall, while Samardzija will have one of the nation's best back to heave passes his way. Miller, meanwhile, isn't sure who will be tossing the pigskin towards him this fall, but he's likely to catch a lot of them in 2006.
OL Justin Blalock Texas
OL Levi Brown Penn State
OL Dan Mozes West Virginia
OL Sam Baker Southern Cal
OL Joe Thomas Wisconsin
Who wouldn't want to run behind this massive, skilled offensive line? All of these guys are among the best in the country, and each appears to have a solid future in the NFL.
DEFENSE
DL Quinn Pitcock Ohio State
DL Lawrence Jackson Southern Cal
DL Quentin Moses Georgia
DL Adam Carriker Nebraska
Jackson, Moses, and Carriker each had somewhere between 9.5 and 11.5 sacks last fall, while Pitcock showed tremendous potential while playing behind a solid core that has now left Columbus. These guys are likely to keep the QB on the move all season long.
LB Paul Posluszny Penn State
LB Patrick Willis Mississippi
LB Rufus Alexander Oklahoma
There was little doubt among the staff who these three spots went to. This trio of punishers averaged 115 tackles each a season ago, and all three had at least three sacks and a half-dozen or more tackles for loss.
DB Brandon Meriweather Miami
DB Daymeion Hughes California
DB Michael Griffin Texas
DB Eric Weddle Utah
Completing a pass against these guys is easier said than done, and in the event you do get your hands on the ball, they're all willing to lay the lumber. Meriweather and Griffin each had more than 110 tackles and 3 interceptions, while Weddle and Hughes had a few less tackles but more picks.
SPECIAL TEAMS
K Mason Crosby Colorado
P Daniel Sepulveda Baylor
KR Ted Ginn, Jr. Ohio State
PR Terry Richardson Arizona State
Crosby has one of the strongest, most accurate legs in the history of college football, while Sepulveda has consistently been one of America's biggest field position changers in recent years. Ginn and Richardson both have the ability to take one to the house at any time.
