Taylor Lewan named to SI.com's 2012 All-America Team

The Wolverines' offensive tackle was recognized by Sports Illustrated on Tuesday.

Michigan Wolverines offensive tackle Taylor Lewan was named to Si.com's 2012 All-America Team on Tuesday, capping another stellar year for the junior. The 2012 season was a relatively disappointing one for the Wolverines, who entered the season in the Top 10 but never got back to those heights after their opening game thrashing at the hands of the Alabama Crimson Tide. Lewan, though, was as steady as ever, earning the Big Ten Offensive Lineman of the Year award while starting every game for Michigan.

The next step for Lewan is determining whether he wants to enter the NFL Draft. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper has Lewan rated as the No. 2 draft-eligible tackle in the country behind Luke Joeckel of Texas A&M and as the No. 13 overall player in the draft.

Lewan will wait until after Michigan's bowl game against the South Carolina Gamecocks to decide his future, but it's hard to imagine him turning down the NFL when he's a guaranteed Top 15-20 pick.
