Phil Steele's 2012 Preseason All-American teams (PDF) have been released ahead of his annual magazines arrival in stores during the first week of June. Unsurprisingly, none of the local Colorado schools have any players on the four-team deep list, but there are several players in the Mountain Time Zone that made it on to the list.
- John White, RB, Utah Utes (3rd Team)
- Braden Hansen, G, BYU Cougars (3rd Team)
- Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah Utes (1st Team)
Todd McShay has Lotulelei projected (Insider-$) as the No. 1 overall pick in his way-too-early 2013 NFL Draft, but it does go to show that the defensive tackle is likely to attract plenty of draft attention on the fall.
