The SEC dominates this year's team with 7 selections, highlighted by the 2019 Heisman winner and quarterback of the national champions, Joe Burrow. Another Tiger, safety Grant Delpit, joins him on the other side of the ball.
Three Georgia players make the list, led by a pair of offensive linemen, Andrew Thomas and Solomon Kindley. Both have declared early for the NFL draft. Placekicker Rodrigo Blankenship, the Lou Groza Award claimant, becomes Georgia's second CollegeFootballPoll.com All-America kicker, following Drew Butler in 2009.
Wisconsin Jonathan Taylor takes A-A honors at RB for the second straight year, joined by Chuba Hubbard of Oklahoma State.
