Alabama and LSU had two players named to ESPN's preseason All-American first team, which was released on Thursday.
Anderson had seven sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss a season ago, earning multiple Freshman All-American honors.
Neal was also a freshman All-American as Alabama's starting right tackle; he'll move to left tackle this season.
Stingley's selection is no surprise as he was a first-team pick by multiple outlets each of his first two seasons. He had six interceptions as a freshman, but failed to get one last year.
York, a junior, hit all 36 point-after tries last season and was 18-for-21 on field goals.
Wydermyer had 46 catches for 506 yards and five touchdowns as a sophomore last year.
The 340-pound Davis had 16 tackles last year, with a sack included.
Kinnard, who made several lower-level All-American teams last year, graded as the top run-blocking tackle in the country last year by PFF.
