Gerald McCoy was a first-team selection by the The Sporting News, the Walter Camp Foundation and the Football Writers Association of America. Trent Williams was first-team by the Associated Press, the American Football Coaches' Association and the Camp Foundation.
A points system was used for the selections of the consensus All-America team (three points for first team, two points for second team and one point for third team). The players who earned consensus status had the highest number of points when compared with other players at their position.
The five organizations used on the consensus chart are the American Football Coaches Association (First Team), Associated Press (First, Second and Third Teams), Football Writers Association of America (First Team), The Sporting News (First, Second and Third Teams) and Walter Camp Foundation (First and Second Teams).
