    2007 CFN Preseason First Team All-American

    Martin Rucker, Sr. Missouri
    The 6-5, 255-pound Rucker was second on the team with 53 catches for 511 yards and five touchdowns. While he's not quite the receiver that fellow tight end Chase Coffman is, he's a better blocker and better in the open field than his 9.6-yard-per-catch average would suggest. He's the all-around talent who'll be used in a variety of situations.

    2007 CFN Preseason Second Team All-American

    Chase Coffman, Jr. Missouri
    The 6-6, 245-pound Coffman, who led the team with 58 catches for 638 yards and nine touchdowns, is a strong enough receiver to be used as a big wide receiver at times. A matchup nightmare with soft hands, tremendous route running ability and the strength to fight off defenders, he's a great go-to target.
