Alabama landed five players on the Walter Camp All-America Team, including four on the first team, which was announced on Thursday night by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.  

Senior center Barrett Jones, junior cornerback Dee Milliner, junior linebacker C.J. Mosley and senior guard Chance Warmack all earned first-team honors, while junior tackle D.J. Fluker was named to the second team. 

Alabama has had 19 players secure 25 first-team All-America honors over the past five years, bringing its total to 111 first-team All-Americans in its history.  

Jones, who hails from Germantown, Tenn., has started 49 games at the Capstone, including 13 this season at center. He has blocked for eight 100-yard rushers in 2012 and 33 in his career. In the 12 regular season games, Jones missed just six assignments on 656 snaps and graded out at 90 percent or better in nine of those games.  

Milliner, a native of Millbrook, Ala., is tied for third nationally in passes defended with 18 (16 PBU, 2 INT) and has 51 tackles with four tackles for loss. His 18 pass breakups are also a career best and rank third on Alabama's single-season list. Throughout his career, Milliner has collected 34 pass breakups, ranking him second in school history and tied for second among active players nationally. 

Mosley, from Theodore, Ala., leads the team with 99 total tackles. In addition, he has seven tackles for loss, four sacks, two interceptions, two pass breakups, one recovered fumble and a forced fumble. Mosley ranks ninth in the Southeastern Conference in tackles per game (7.92) and has had at least six tackles in 10 of the Crimson Tide's 13 games this season. 

Warmack has started 39 games at the Capstone over the last three years. In 2012, the Atlanta native was a two-time SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week and, through the 12 games leading up to the SEC Championship, missed only six assignments in 657 snaps. He graded out at 90 percent or better in seven games during the regular season and leads the team with 36 pancake blocks. 

Fluker, a native of Foley, Ala., has made 35 starts in his career, including all 13 games this season at right tackle. Through the regular season, he graded out at 98.3 percent, missing just 11 assignments in 653 plays. Fluker is second on the team in pancake blocks with 30 and allowed only four sacks from his position in 266 pass attempts.
