Heisman winner Jameis Winston headlines AP All-America team

Jameis Winston AP

And the honors keep rolling in for Florida State’s redshirt freshman quarterback, with Jameis Winston grabbing a spot on one of the most prestigious All-America teams in the country.

The Associated Press Tuesday released its annual three-deep postseason All-America teams, with Winston being just one of two redshirt freshmen to be named to the AP first team.  The other?  Teammate and kicker Robert Aguayo.

Just two players were repeat selections from the first team a year ago, and both of those came from the defensive side of the ball: Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley and Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton.

The Seminoles, the only unbeaten team remaining at the FBS level, led all schools with four first-teamers.  Alabama and Texas A&M with two apiece were the only other schools with more than one player on the first team.

The ACC, Pac-12 and SEC each had six first-team selections.

    Who gets drafted first from A&M?

    Manziel, Evans, or Matthews?

  2. 8to80texansblog says: Dec 17, 2013 1:34 PM

    How odd is it that the Mackey winner is a 3rd teamer?

  3. theworkhorsebackdotcom says: Dec 17, 2013 1:35 PM

    Not too many arguments that can be made from this list.

  4. lbroberts123 says: Dec 17, 2013 1:43 PM

    I think Auburn’s punter should have made it. Other than that, I do t see too much that should change.

  5. longtallsam says: Dec 17, 2013 2:02 PM

    Who gets drafted first at wide receiver? Sammy Watkins

  6. theworkhorsebackdotcom says: Dec 17, 2013 2:08 PM

    @8to80texansblog

    It should matthews. Manziel will get criticized for lack of height, maturity and leadership. Evans is big, not fast, decent route runner. Matthews has size, attitude, nastiness, and good technique. Plus having a good NFL bloodline never hurts.

    IIRC to be inducted into the CFB HOF, a player has to have been named a consensus All-American at least once in his career. To my knowledge this achievement has yet to be attained by A.J. McCarron. It would be a damn shame if an accomplished QB like A.J. (w/ two NCs on his resume) wasn’t eligible b/c of the All American oversight. Again, I could be wrong, but that is my recollection. Hopefully, the sportswriters will rectify this soon.

    @theworkhorsebackdotcom

    It might be Matthews…. I wouldn’t be surprised if all of them went in the first round.

    It pains me to say this but I feel Manziel has Oakland written all over him.

    I’ve seen a few mocks with Watkins going first but the majority of them have Mike Evans going first.

    If that is true, that is a pretty dumb requirement. If someone is good enough to be a second or third teamer three times, and leads his team to two or three national titles, it would be ridiculous to exclude that person from HofF eligibility.

    From what I understand, a player must be a first-team AP AA to be eligible, just like a coach must have a career winning percentage over .600. From what I’ve seen, however, the voters can make exceptions, so McCarron could still get in if enough of them think he’s worthy in spite of not fulfilling the AA requirement.

    Thin Ekpre-Olomu should at least been second team. I want that guy on my NFL squad.

    A friendly reminder that character plays no role in the heisman selection process.

  14. theworkhorsebackdotcom says: Dec 17, 2013 7:05 PM

    @8to80texansblog

    yeah I could definitely see all of them going in the first round this year.

    Who do you think the Texans will go after? Bridgewater?

  15. irishdodger says: Dec 18, 2013 10:07 AM

    Regardless, AJ will be well deserving of CFB HoF enshrinement when he’s eligible.

    Depends on who the next coach is. I could see them going after Bridgewater, yes…. I could also see them taking Clowney or Donald and trading for Cousins, or I could even see them trading back and getting Manziel….

    Just depends. Have to find a coach before we focus on the draft.
