Yankey leads Pac-12 All-Americans

By Ted Miller

With all major All-American teams now published, Stanford offensive guard David Yankey leads the Pac-12 as the conference's lone unanimous selection.

Five other Pac-12 players were consensus selections: Arizona RB Ka'Deem Carey, Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks, UCLA OLB Anthony Barr, Stanford OLB Trent Murphy and Stanford kick returner Ty Montgomery.

Arizona State DT Will Sutton, the Pac-12's Defensive Player of the Year for a second consecutive year, and Washington State safety Deone Bucannon were AP All-Americans.

This marks the seventh consecutive season the Pac-12 has had a unanimous selection. Yankey, who led a Cardinal offensive unit that ranked fourth nationally for fewest tackles for loss allowed/game (3.69) and 16th nationally for fewest sacks allowed/game (1.15), is the eighth unanimous All-America selection in Stanford history.

We previously noted a handful of other All-American teams, all of which included Yankey, by the way.

To earn consensus honors, a player must be selected first team on at least three of the five major All-America teams and be listed on the most first-team All-America teams relative to other players at that position. For positions with more than one player represented on the first team, a corresponding number of players may earn a consensus billing. The organizations used in the consensus chart  are American Football Coaches Association, Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, The Sporting News and Walter Camp Football Foundation.
