Preseason rankings and All-American lists can be a great precursor to the season, letting fans know what they might expect from the upcoming college football season.
The blind polls can also be very inaccurate.
As with ever year, a number of preseason All-America selections haven't lived up to their billing in the early going.
One of the best receivers in the nation from last year, Marqise Lee of USC, is off to a slow start thanks to his team's overall offensive struggles. Meanwhile, a number of other players are off to decent starts, but haven't emerged as true All-Americans just yet.
Finally, some of the nation's best in the preseason have been bit by the injury or suspension bug, which has limited their production thus far.
