Another trio of Tigers were named preseason first-team All-Americans and five total made the list with the USA TODAY Sports selections this week.
"After a strong offseason on the heels of a sterling debut campaign (30 touchdowns against four interceptions), Lawrence is bigger, stronger and even sharper mentally heading into his sophomore year," USA TODAY Paul Myerberg writes.

Isaiah Simmons is again a preseason first-team selection on the defensive side.
"Big enough to play linebacker and fast enough to play in the secondary, Simmons (97 tackles) might be the top defender in the country," said Myerberg.
