The Tigers placed three players on the AP Second Team All-America squad, including a pair of offensive linemen in junior center Ben Wilkerson and senior guard Stephen Peterman. Defensive back Corey Webster, a junior, earned a spot on the second team as a defensive back. Webster picked off six passes for the Tigers in 2003 as the LSU defense is ranked first in the SEC in six different categories, while also leading the nation in scoring defense.
Michael Clayton, the SEC's leading receiver in 2003 with 74 catches for 1,041 yards and 10 touchdowns, earned all-America status for the first time as a member of the AP third team. Clayton was joined on the third unit by sophomore Skyler Green, who made the team as a return specialist. Green currently leads the nation in punt returns with a 19.8 average.
Oklahoma, LSU's opponent in the 2004 Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, placed five players on the first team led by Heisman Trophy winner Jason White. Other Sooners on the first time include Antonio Perkins (all-purpose), Tommie Harris (defensive line), Teddy Lehman (linebacker) and Derrick Strait (defensive back).
