    2007 CFN Preseason First Team All-Americans

    Sam Baker, Sr. USC
    The anchor of the great USC front wall will be Baker at left tackle, a two-time All-American and arguably the most complete lineman in the country this season. Entering his fourth year as the starter, he’s the total package, a top pass protector and improving run blocker, who’ll begin the 2007 season in the best shape of his career. He'll be a top 15 draft pick in 2008.

    Jake Long, Sr. Michigan
    The 6-7, 313-pound Long is one of the nation's premier tackles, having gone from very good to special after slimming down and getting quicker. A strong pass protector, he can also bury defenders in the running game. He likely would've been a top ten pick had he come out this season, and might turn into the Joe Thomas of this year and become a top three choice.

    2007 CFN Preseason Second Team All-Americans

    Ryan Clady, Jr. Boise State
    The veteran line that did a phenomenal job last year gets four starters back, anchored around Clady at left tackle. The world got to see just how good he is in the Fiesta Bowl, and now the 6-6, 319-pound junior is starting to get the attention that WAC fans knew he deserved all along. A punishing run blocker, he's also tremendous in pass protection with a great combination of size, quickness and strength.

    Jeremy Zuttah, Sr. Rutgers
    Zuttah is a model of versatility, having started at left guard and right tackle the last two years. With a chance to finally play the same position two years in a row, he could be special this fall.
