    2016 Preseason Offensive All Americans

    QB Mark Sowell, Georgia Tech
    Sowell had an excellent 2015 season, as he threw for just under 2500 yards and ran for 625 yards. He combined for 38 TD. A disappointing finish to the season, makes me believe that Sowell will be doing everything he can to get the Yellow Jackets back to the title game.

    RB Andrew Garrison, Florida
    As a Freshman, Garrison rushed for 1501 yards and 19 TD. Also caught 28 passes for 400 yards. Garrison might not be the fastest or the strongest RB in the nation, but he comes to play in big games. He looks to avoid the sophomore slump and help the Gators repeat as National Champions.

    RB Dusty Thompson, Florida State
    Dusty Thompson racked up 1116 yards 15 TD as a Freshman last season for the Seminoles. Thompson was instrumental in the success for FSU last season, carrying them to a 13-1 record and #2 in the final polls.

    WR Albert Gray, LSU
    This might be the easiest choice for AA there is. Gray caught 60 balls for 1597 yards and 19 TD last season. Averages over 26 yards per completion and has world class speed that makes him a nightmare for the secondary. Look for Albert Gray to be at the top of the Heisman race at the end of the season as well.

    WR Brad Gilmore, Georgia
    In Georgia pass happy offense, Gilbert excelled catching 89 balls for 1311 yards and 12 TD. Gilbert looks to have another big season to help the Bulldogs keep pace in the tough SEC.

    TE Will Griffin, Tennessee
    Griffin hauled in 40 receptions for 662 yards and 4 TD. He was a big part of the Vols offense last, not only catching balls but blocking as well. 4 pancake blocks and 0 sacks allowed.

    LT Eric Joseph, Ohio State
    Eric Joseph had 15 pancake blocks and only 2 sacks allowed. Some say he is undersized to play LT, but he makes up for it with his quickness and strength. He will need to have another big season protecting QB Anthony Griffin's blind side.

    LG Deon King, Penn State
    So far through 2 season King hasn't allowed a sack yet. 10 pancake blocks last season, as he was able to blow people off the ball and help get that option offense to the second level. Look for continued success from the Nittany Lions run game this season.

    C Andy Watkins, Ohio State
    Andy Watkins leads the talented and experienced OL at tOSU. 9 pancakes 0 sacks allowed. This will be his 3 year starting at C and looks to be his best season yet.

    RG Charlie Malone, Michigan
    Another Big 10 OL named to the AA team. 18 pancakes and 2 sacks allowed last season, but will Coach Hood's departure from Ann Arbor bring a decline in production?

    RT Rick Upshaw, Alabama
    The 2014 Best OL had a drop in production in 2015, going from 49 pancakes to 17. Look for him to get back to 2014 form and have another big season for the Tide.

    Excellent job Dean.

    I was highly suprised Sowell didnt try to leave for the Pro's, b/c he couldnt be swayed if he did.

    Glad he is back.

    Nice job Dean. Sad thing for Dusty Thompson is that he may not be the starter. Scott Myers improved during the off season and may get his chance with the #1's.

    Great write up Dean and looks like the list could hold their same spots after the season. My WR Gilmore wil have to get use to getting the ball from a new QB this season and maybe counted on more now that Doak Walker Winner Johnson is in the pros
