Love AJ getting props, well deserved
You just beat me to it on the post.
This is one of services the NCAA uses to determine consensus and unanimous status.
Football Writers Association Will announce its team Friday.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Awesome for CJ. Except for the INTs, his numbers were as good as Teo's.
me too...a bit surprising
So Lucky says Lacy is a lock to go inthe draft this year but he isn't even 3rd team at RB?
Didn't mean to steal your thunder Chris.
Well sirs, we have an All-American QB. So that means 4 of the 5 lineman were once named to an All-American team to go along with the QB in their career at the Capstone. I suspect Cooper will be named as a receiver next year and just maybe a pre-season publication. And on defense, If I'm not mistaken, I thought Lester made a list or two last year. So there may be a total on 3 for defense who were named at some point in their careers.
Lacy split carries....which hurts his numbers and AA team chances. Doesn't affect his draft prospects though.
No worries -
As for the Lacy question, we'll have something on his draft stock later today.
