Position group All-America team
Building the ultimate team with the best units in college football
Each week during the college football season, Mel Kiper and Todd McShay kick off the week by settling a debate, and then look at emerging NFL prospects and peek ahead to next week.
Put together a position-group All-America team.
Mel Kiper: I've been assigned offense, and you'll sense a trend.
Quarterback: Florida State
Jimbo Fisher has it pretty good. His No. 1 is a future No. 1 overall draft pick. And while he's currently out with a gimpy knee, Florida State's No. 2 quarterback, Jacob Coker, is a good prospect in his own right, and could end up as an early-round pick someday. Jameis Winston isn't just here because he's a prospect, either. The numbers clearly back up the hype, as he's currently completing 70.9 percent of his passes with an average of 293.8 yards per game, and 28 TD passes -- and remember, those are mainly first-half totals. A healthy Coker could start for almost any team in the country, just not the one he's on. Next up: Ohio State, Texas A&M, Oregon
Running backs: Baylor
