All-American Teams 2011, AP: Colorado's Ryan Miller Makes 3rd Team; Trent Richardson Is 1st Team RB

For the second year in a row, the Colorado Buffaloes have an AP All-American. In 2010, Nate Solder was a first team AP All-American while in 2011 Ryan Miller made the third-team guard position. Miller had earlier been named a second-team Walter Camp All-American.

Also of note, Alabama running back Trent Richardson made first-team AP All-American with his 1,500-plus rushing yards and 20 touchdowns. Alabama Crimson Tide offensive coordinator and Colorado St. Rams head coach Jim McElwain can now point to producing another Heisman Trophy finalist and AP All-American when he starts recruiting for the Rams.

The Boise St. Broncos had just two All-Americans and neither was quarterback Kellen Moore. Tackle Nate Potter was a second-team tackle and George Iloka was a third-team safety. Moore was left off as Heisman winner Robert Griffin III was the first team quarterback; Stanford's Andrew Luck made the second team; and USC's Matt Barkley took the third team.
