Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley, Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton and Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey were named first team All-Americans for the second straight year, while Florida State’s four first-teamers helped the ACC put six players on the first team, tying Pac-12 and the SEC for the most from any conference.
