ESPN's All-Time All-American College football teams (1st and 2nd teams) [View all]

The full list is here.

Most of the spotlight is always on the skill positions. Mostly I agree.

RB's Jim Brown - Herschel | Bo - Archie Griffin ... only four spots so I guess Earl Campbell got left out. WR's Rice - Larry Fitzgerald | Randy Moss - Biletnikoff...... mmm I saw Moss play several times and he was well there are no words. Seems like Rice made it on his pro career because the scouts might have known about him but no one else really did. Biletnikoff seems like a nostalgia pick.

All purpose - Johnny Rodgers | Tim Brown. I'd say Tim Brown was one of the best I ever saw on TV. I'd put him as WR.

QB's. Staubach | Peyton's Manning. Roger seems like a nostalgia pick. Manning? He never won a big game and his record against Florida was the subject of jokes. I know they aren't going to put him on the list but Michael Vick was, to me, the epitome of a college game QB. Run and pass. For all the Tech history under Beamer, Vick is the only one who got them to a championship game.

Deion, Woodson, and Ronnie Lott were always going to be on the list. Nice to see Norfolk's Kenny Easley on the list.
