College Football's 2014 Postseason All-America Team

Athlon makes its picks for All-America honors.

With the conclusion of the regular season, it’s time to reflect on the college football season and honor the best of the best from 2014. There were plenty of outstanding individual and team performances this year, and of course, we can’t forget about the new four-team playoff, which added a new element of intrigue to the season.

 

As the college football world prepares for the bowl season, Athlon Sports handing out hardware to the nation’s best players from this year.

 

As usual, it’s never easy assembling three All-America teams. There are plenty of standout performers that won’t make the cut, but we tried to blend talent, production and consistency to form the top four teams.
