2004 Playboy All-America Team
For the 47th year, the Playboy All-America Team has been put together. It's essentially a preseason all-star lineup of the best collegiate athletes from across the country selected by myself and Playboy sports editor Gary Cole. It also serves as a tremendous preview for the 2005 NFL Draft.
Check out last year's list -- the amount of top draft picks is astonishing. Six of the first nine, 13 in the first round and 16 of the top 46 were on the Playboy team in '04. Included among them were Eli Manning (No. 1 overall), Robert Gallery (No. 2), Sean Taylor (No. 5), Kellen Winslow (No. 6), Roy Williams (No. 7) and Reggie Williams (No. 9). It goes without saying that any draft fan should make a note of the Playboy team every year and track their performance.
I am fortunate enough to spend time with the Playboy team every year in Arizona when the players fly into town with the sports information directors (SIDs) from their schools and participate in a special weekend dedicated to them. They also take part in an exclusive photo shoot for the magazine.
But that's not all they do. Here is a shortened schedule of what happened at this year's Playboy All-America Team weekend:
