The Arizona Wildcats are far from the most storied college football program in Division I, and they don't often churn out early-round NFL draft picks. However, there occasionally comes along a player whose greatness is nationally recognized while suiting up in the Red and Blue with the Block A on the helmet.

Six Arizona Football players have been recognized as unanimous first-team All-Americans, signifying that they were among the two or three best players in the nation at their positions. 12 players have been recognized as consensus All-Americans. In this series, we'll look at all their Arizona careers position-by-position.

Second up in the series will be the unanimous All-American cornerbacks Darryll Lewis and Chris McAlister. The men both carved out wildly productive careers as DBs with extremely sticky hands, and McAlister emerged as a true force to be reckoned with on special teams.
