Alabama had three players selected to the 2012 AFCA FBS Coaches' All-America Team on Tuesday it was announced by the America Football Coaches Association on Wednesday. 

The AFCA recognized senior offensive guard Chance Warmack, junior cornerback Dee Milliner and junior linebacker C.J. Mosley as first-team All-Americans.  

Alabama has had 19 players secure 21 first-team All-Americans over the past five years. It is the first All-America honor for each player and gives Alabama 107 first-team All-Americans in its history.  

Milliner, who hails from Millbrook, Ala., has been a stalwart in the back end of the Crimson Tide's top-ranked defense. He is a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, which goes to the nation's top defensive back, and the Bronko Naguraski Award that is awarded to the nation's top defensive player. He is fourth nationally in passes defended with 18 (16 PBU, 2 INT) and has 47 tackles with four tackles for loss.  

Mosley, a native of Theodore, Ala., leads the team with 92 tackles and is a finalist for the Butkus Award, which goes to the country's best linebacker. He also has six tackles for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, two pass breakups, one recovered fumble and a forced fumble. Mosley's three career interception returns for touchdowns also tie an Alabama record.  

Warmack is from Atlanta, Ga., and has developed into one of the nation's top offensive linemen as a senior. He has started 38 games at the Capstone over the last three years. Warmack was a two-time SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week in 2012 and has missed only six assignments in 657 snaps (99.1 percent). He graded out at 90 percent or better in seven games and leads the team with 36 pancake blocks.
