If you haven’t seen the seniors on the Athlon Sports FCS Postseason All-America Team on Saturdays, you might catch them on Sundays next season.

It would all start with Eastern Washington wide receiver Cooper Kupp, who could have been drafted last spring, but returned for his senior season and wound up finishing his career with 428 receptions, 6,464 receiving yards and 73 touchdown catches – all Division I records.

The FCS is often good at producing NFL-bound players along the offensive line and at defensive end/outside linebacker, so keep an eye on offensive tackles Julie’n Davenport of Bucknell and Jessamen Dunker of Tennessee State as well as Northern Iowa defensive end Karter Schult, who won the 2016 Buck Buchanan Award, and Missouri State outside linebacker Dylan Cole.

The All-America team suggests how much the talent level is widespread across the FCS. Sam Houston State is the only team with two selections as the 29-player team features 28 different schools from 11 different conferences.
