College Football All-Americans Announced

The Associated Press released its All-America teams on Monday, and to the surprise of no one, the top spots were dominated by players from the SEC and the Big Ten.
The skill position nods on offense landed elsewhere -- Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson, Texas running back D'Onta Foreman and Florida State running back Dalvin Cook were all First Team picks along with Oklahoma's Dede Westbrook and Western Michigan's Corey Davis -- but in the trenches, it was all about the big boys from the SEC and Big Ten. 
Each conference had seven players named to the All-America First Team -- more than any other conference.
Alabama's Cam Robinson and Wisconsin's Ryan Ramczyk were All-American tackles while Indiana senior Dan Feeney and Washington State's Cody O'Connell were All-American guards. 
Ohio State's Pat Elflein was the first-team All-American center while Ole Miss senior Evan Engram was the first-team tight end. 
Curtis Samuel of Ohio State was the all-purpose first team All-American and Arizona State kicker Zane Gonzalez made first team All-American. 
Texas A&M and Tennessee juniors Myles Garrett and Derek Barnett were first team All-Defense at defensive ends.
Houston's Ed Oliver was the only freshman to make the All-American teams at first team defensive tackle. He was joined by Alabama junior Jonathan Allen.
Michigan standout Jabrill Peppers was a first team at linebacker joined by Alabama's Reuben Foster and Vanderbilt's Zach Cunningham.
Cornerback first team All-American were Michigan's Jourdan Lewis and USC's Adoree' Jackson. 
Ohio State and Alabama sophomore safeties Malik Hooker and Minkah Fitzpatrick made the first team.
