MSB: 2011 College Football Pre-Season All-America Teams

March 16, 2011 | Thyrl Nelson

One of my favorite guests to talk to each and every week is Todd Helmick from NationalChamps.net who joins me on Fridays and is a veritable wealth of college football analysis and information. His 2011 NCAA Football All-Americans list comes out today, and he’s challenged me to come up with a list of my own. I’d encourage you to check his lists out too, as they’re sure to provide tons of analysis to go with his picks.

Here are my 2011 All-American Football picks. I hope I stack up reasonably well with Todd’s picks when the dust finally settles on next season. I also hope that I haven’t overlooked any early NFL departures, suspension or arrests and put someone on the list that won’t be playing college football next year.
