The Big Ten is well represented on ESPN’s All-American team.
Six players from the conference made the cut — three on offense and three on defense. ESPN put out just a first team on each side of the ball and special teams.
Michigan TE Jake Butt, Indiana G Dan Feeney and Ohio State C Pat Elflein were the offensive selections. Michigan State DT Malik McDowell, Iowa CB Desmond King and Ohio State LB Raekwon McMillan made it on defense.
Minus maybe Jabrill Peppers, these six players have gotten the most preseason attention from national media. All six likely have NFL futures, with McDowell, King, Elflein and McMillan projected first round picks in WalterFootball.com’s latest mock draft.
