In the last 5 years, Alabama has had 16 consensus All Americans. To become a consensus All-American 3 of the 5 sources that the NCAA recognize must name a player an All-American.
Here are some other schools:
Oklahoma St and Florda 6
Standford, aTm, Texas, Wisconsin, and LSU 5
USC and Michigan St 4
That is just amazing, IMO.

Incredible stat. Nice find. And, since Tim has given his stamp of approval, I am forbidden to criticize (not that I would).
This year moved Alabama past Nebraska and Texas into ninth all-time in consensus All-Americans

Impressive, to say the least.
Wow, very impressive.
This is true.
At least 25% of them were 3 stars or less out of high school or JUCO.
What are the 5 sources?
Associated Press, Sporting News, Football Writers Association of America, College Football Writers Association, and the Walter Camp Foundation.
only have to be on 2 of the 5 to be consensus.
ncaa press release notes:
The above players were listed on the most first team All-America teams competing against players at that position only. To be selected a player has to be named first team on at least two of the five selected All-American teams. Second and third teams were used to break ties.
but here are the 5
The American Football Coaches Association
Football Writers Association of America
The Sporting News
Walter Camp Foundation.
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
Wow, nice find
The REC, the REC, the REC, the REC and.....oh yeah. The REC.
