Phil Steele has released his Preseason All-American teams for the 2014 College Football Season. As Steele writes, his preseason All-American teams are different than many other lists out there made by others because “I project how those players will fare in the upcoming season.

Phil Steele released his Preseason All-ACC teams today, and there were plenty of Louisville Cardinals getting some recognition. DeVante Parker and Jake Smith were the only players to make the first team, although he has Smith as a center. Smith moved to guard in spring practice. On the second team, you will see Lorenzo Mauldin as a defensive end, even though he will basically be a linebacker/defense end hybrid this season. But it’s whatever. In all, 12 different Cards made the list. Charles Gaines is on it twice because he runs with animals.

Of the 12 players on the 1st Team Offense, Florida State has 6 of them. So they will probably be pretty good this season.

Here are the teams. What do you think?

So there are the current projections which all of them have us going to Orlando for the Florida Citrus Bowl. However I believe it will be UCF playing in their home city and Louisville in the BCS for a second straight year. I project that we will play in the Sugar Bowl for the second straight season vs Mizzou, A&M or Auburn.
Go Cards!
