Oregon senior Shane Lemieux is one of two guards selected to the The Associated Press preseason All-America first team as voted on by sportswriters across the country in the list released Tuesday.

Lemieux has started all 38 of the Ducks' games the past three seasons and was a second team all-Pac-12 Conference selection last year. Lemieux is part of a veteran offensive line that is considered one of the best in country entering the season.

Oregon senior tackle Calvin Throckmorton was named to the AP second team. He also has started 38 consecutive games for the Ducks and is one of the nation's most versatile offensive linemen, having started every position on Oregon's offensive line in his career except left guard. He is coming off a leg injury sustained in last year's Redbox Bowl win over Michigan State but hasn't missed any time in fall camp because of the injury.

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and two of his teammates from the top-ranked Tigers are on the first team.

Lawrence, the first freshman to quarterback to lead a team to a national championship in more than 30 years, was joined on the first-team offense by Clemson running back Travis Etienne. Clemson linebacker Isaiah Simmons was a first-team selection on defense. Clemson and No. 2 Alabama tied for the most first-team selections with three.

Alabama ide receiver Jerry Jeudy, an All-American last season, was selected to the preseason first team, along with defensive lineman Raekwon Davis and linebacker Dylan Moses.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the Heisman Trophy runner-up, was selected to the second team.

Led by Alabama, the Southeastern Conference placed eight players on the first team, one more than the Big Ten.
