Note: This isn't a ranking of the top pro prospects. This is based on the seasons we think the players are going to have.

CFN 2010 FIRST TEAM PRESEASON ALL-AMERICANS

1. Rodney Hudson, Sr., Florida State
In 2008, the Seminoles had one of the nation’s youngest offensive lines. In 2010, they’ll boast a front wall that returns five starters, who have combined for 142 career starts. The leading man will once again be the 6-2, 282-pound Hudson, the star at left guard. A fourth-year starter, he’s been All-ACC over the last three seasons, earning the league’s Jacobs Blocking Award and a spot on the All-American team in 2009. Versatile, athletic, and technically flawless, he doesn’t make mistakes and graded out at a pristine 88% a year ago.

2. Justin Boren, Sr. Ohio State
As a symbol of the shift in the rivalry, Boren is mostly known for leaving Michigan after a supposed lack of a family atmosphere under Rich Rodriguez. However, the veteran left guard is more than just a defector; he’s a top-shelf NFL prospect. At 6-3 and 320 pounds with a mean, nasty streak, he’s a bear of a run blocker earning first-team All-Big Ten honors as the team’s best blasted for the ground game. While he was banged up a bit with a foot problem, he still managed to start in 12 games providing the physical presence the line was in need of.

CFN 2010 SECOND TEAM PRESEASON ALL-AMERICANS

3. Stefen Wisniewski, Sr. Penn State
In one of the biggest moves of the offseason, Wisniewski, an all-star center, moved over to a more natural right guard spot. The 6-3, 297-pound veteran was one of the line’s only bright spots last year and continues to be one of the nation’s best technicians. The nephew of former Penn State and NFL star, Steve, he’s physical for the ground game and moves extremely well. While he’s not massive by next-level standards, and he might end up having a future as a center or a zone-blocking guard, he’ll end up earning All-America honors as the anchor of a resurgent line.

4. Thomas Claiborne, Sr. Boston College
Lining up at right guard is the 6-3, 325-pound Claiborne, another pile-driver in the running game. The team’s most powerful run blocker, he’s got a non-stop motor that’ll often carry him well downfield as he seeks out someone on the other team to lay out. Far more than just an all-star caliber lineman, he’s captain material and one of the inspirational leaders of the offense.

CFN 2010 HONORABLE MENTION PRESEASON ALL-AMERICANS

5. Caleb Schlauderaff, Sr. Utah
The star of the great Utah line will likely be Schlauderaff, a 6-4, 302-pound senior who has improved as his career has gone on. The second-team All-Mountain West right guard is the team’s best run blocker and is a rock in pass protection. He got a look at left tackle this offseason, but he’s far better suited at guard.

6. Stephen Schilling, Sr. Michigan
The anchor of the veteran Wolverine front five will once again be Schilling, a 6-5, 303-pound veteran who started most of 2008 at right tackle and was a rock at left guard last year. He struggled in his time on the outside but has been excellent at times on the inside earning honorable mention All-Big Ten honors last year. He has had an interesting career having issues with mono and a shoulder problem, but outside of a missed game against Ohio State two years ago he has been a rock.

BEST OF THE REST

7. Barrett Jones, Soph. Alabama
In a slight surprise, Jones took over the starting right guard job and was phenomenal throughout. The Freshman All-American is a great practice player, always goes full-tilt, and always finishes his blocks. On top of his skills and his toughness, he’s smart in the classroom and doesn’t make mistakes on the field. The 6-4, 301-pounder is versatile enough to be moved around where needed and he could end up stepping in at tackle from time to time.

8. John Bender, Sr. Nevada
Back at his spot at the strongside guard after starting every game last year is Bender , a massive 6-8, 325-pound senior who finally stayed healthy and showed what he could do. In the mix for all-star honors this year, he’s a tremendous wall for the ground game and should be the team’s anchor. A star recruit, he has played like it even though he hasn’t received the recognition. That will change this year.

9. John Moffitt, Sr. Wisconsin
Moffitt has grown into a top producer at left guard with tremendous strength and toughness for the ground game. About to be an all-star, the 6-5, 323-pounder is healthy after having a hernia and he’ll once again be one of the team’s steadiest run blockers. The first-team All-Big Ten performer is the definition of a road grader.

10. Ryan Miller, Jr. Colorado
The 6-8, 310-pound Miller is WAY too tall for a guard, but he’ll get the nod at right guard after moving back and forth between tackle and guard. Trying to get healthy again after missing time this offseason, he’ll once again be a very tough inside presence, but he has to do more for the ground game. The former Colorado Gatorade Player of the Year was a top recruit for the Buffs, but he hasn’t shown off his skills often enough.

11. Zach Hurd, Sr. Connecticut
12. Ken Plue, Jr. Purdue
13. Cordy Glenn, Jr. Georgia
14. Trevor Robinson, Jr. Notre Dame
15. Andrew Jackson, Sr. Fresno State
16. Carl Johnson, Sr. Florida

19. Stephen Good, Jr. Oklahoma
20. Alex Hoffman, Jr. Cincinnati
21. Alan Pelc, Sr. North Carolina
22. Tray Allen, Sr. Texas
