ESPN.com released its Midseason All-America Team this week and three Alabama players made the list.

Center Barrett Jones and guard Chance Warmack were joined by cornerback Dee Milliner on the honorary team.

College football writer Mark Schlabach had this to say about the trio of Crimson Tide players:

On Warmack...

"Alabama's more heralded offensive linemen have overshadowed Warmack the past couple of seasons, but he is now widely considered the Tide's best NFL prospect and possibly a top-10 pick next spring."

On Jones...

"Jones, the reigning Outland Trophy winner as the country's top interior lineman, anchors an Alabama offensive line that helped the Crimson Tide score 27 times in 28 trips inside their opponents' red zone."

On Milliner...

"He leads the country in passes defensed with 2.75 per game, and his play is a big reason the Tide again lead the country in scoring defense (7.5 points), total defense (181.1 yards) and pass defense (125.8 yards)."
