The regular season has concluded, and it’s time to cast our ballots for All-Americans. Last year, we peppered our submission with a lot more midmajor players (Forrest Lamp, Ed Oliver etc.) and those from smaller programs (Lamar Jackson, Jordan Willis.) This year, however, the vast majority of the nation’s impact players hail from the traditional powers and other Tier One contenders. In our estimation, the men below earned our votes on the field. Congratulations.
