Athlon and Phil Steele release their preseason All-Pac 12 teams

College football analyst Phil Steele and sports media outlet Athlon Sports have released their annual preseason All-Pac 12 teams and the Buffs are well represented on each.

Athlon, which released its teams in early June, gave senior safety Isaiah Lewis second-team honors, while three players garnered third-team recognition: kicker Cole Becker, linebacker Quinn Perry and defensive tackle Jalen Sami. Tight end Brady Russell, guard Casey Roddick and LB Josh Chandler-Semedo rounded it out with fourth-team selections.

Steele highlighted a few different players as wide receiver R.J. Sneed was placed on his second team, and defensive end/tackle Terrence Lang was a fourth-team nod. Both Athlon and Steele agreed on the placements of Sami and Russell.
