Who's an All-American?

There will be a steady flow of various All-American teams over the coming weeks, and this week it's Phil Steele.

You can see his four All-American teams here.

Steele's list includes 17 Pac-12 players, which ranks third behind the SEC (26) and ACC (18).

Alabama, Oklahoma and Oregon each have three first-team selections, while Alabama had more players total (7) than any other school, followed by Florida St (6) and Stanford (5). Oklahoma, South Carolina, Miami, Georgia, and Notre Dame each have four players.

You might notice that Stanford's Andrew Luck is the second-team quarterback. You might have the same reaction to that as I did.

Kellye and Kevin Jones of Artesia, N.M, would pick Luck ahead of Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones for their team, and they're Jones' parents.

Jones did put up some eye-popping numbers last season -- and his team is a national title contender in 2011 -- but he was far less efficient than Luck.

Here are the Pac-12 players on the team.
