Trevone Boykin, Robert Nkemdiche highlight midseason All-Americans


Trevone Boykin, TCU
Seth Russell and Baylor have been more prolific, but TCU's first-half schedule has had a little more meat on it. Do I sound like the playoff selection committee?

Running back

Leonard Fournette, LSU
An NFL scout said Fournette could start for "all but six or seven NFL teams."

Dalvin Cook, Florida State
Imagine how good he'd be with two hamstrings.


Spencer Drango, Baylor
Smart (Campbell Trophy semifinalist), durable (41 starts and counting) and, by the way, he can block, too.

Taylor Decker, Ohio State
Another durable veteran and leader, no matter who the quarterback is.


Josh Garnett, Stanford
Big, athletic senior; get out of his way when he pulls to make room for McCaffrey.

Dan Feeney, Indiana
Linchpin of the most efficient, effective offense in the Big Ten.


Ethan Pocic, LSU
Locker-room nickname is "Mensa" because of his intelligence. Unusually big (6-foot-7, 301 pounds) for a center.

Wide receiver

Josh Doctson, TCU
Like Fournette, has a season's worth of stats at the halfway point.

Corey Coleman, Baylor
Already has 16 touchdown catches, and averages more than 21 yards per catch.

Will Fuller, Notre Dame
Nearly 22 yards per catch. Stretches the field for tailback C.J. Prosise (922 yards).

Defensive line

Robert Nkemdiche, Ole Miss
Memphis game changed when No. 5 went out with a concussion. Two-way star got hurt carrying the ball.

Shaq Lawson, Clemson
Has been nearly unblockable for one of the best defenses in the nation.

Myles Garrett, Texas A&M
So big, so fast. Gave young Alabama star left tackle Cam Robinson all he could handle.

Carl Nassib, Penn State
Leads FBS in sacks (11.5) and tackles for loss (16.5)


Joe Schobert, Wisconsin
Judging by his tackles and sacks, he spends a lot of time behind the line of scrimmage.

Blake Martinez, Stanford
Latest in a long line of Cardinal disrupters. Uncanny instinct for where the play is going.

Reggie Ragland, Alabama
Don't watch the ball, watch him. You'll find out where the ball is soon enough.


Vernon Hargreaves III, Florida
He must get bored. No one ever throws on his side of the field.

Jourdan Lewis, Michigan
Lockdown corner on a suffocating defense.


Vonn Bell, Ohio St.
Defensive backfield sheriff who scored a TD (fumble) in the Hawaii game, which is more than you can say for Hawaii.

Jeremy Cash, Duke
Leads the ACC with 11.5 tackles behind the line -- as a defensive back.


Ross Martin, Duke
A big reason the Blue Devils have been winning tight games -- he's 12-of-12 on field goals.


Michael Carrizosa, San Jose State
Leads the FBS with an average of 50.2 yards per punt, and the Spartans are second in net punting (45.0 YPP).


Christian McCaffrey, Stanford
There have been six 300-yard all-purpose games in the FBS this season. McCaffrey has two of them.
