Did you notice a shocking omission? USC WR Marqise Lee is a likely preseason first- or at least second-team All-American, but he's not on Steele's list. He was second-team All-Pac-12 for Steele, so it was an omission.

You could also wonder about Oregon punter Jackson Rice, a 2011 Ray Guy Award finalist, and Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan.
