Palo Alto grad and Fresno State wide receiver Davante Adams, the nation's top receiver, received All-America honors on Thursday.


Davante Adams/Fresno State Athletics
Adams was selected to the Walter Camp Football Foundation All-America second-team and to the Athlon Sports third-team.

Bulldogs quarterback Derek Carr was a third-team selection of Athlon Sports.

Carr and Adams were the only Mountain West players selected to the 2013 Athlon Sports All-America teams.

Adams earned his second straight All-American honor, but his first time by the prestigious Walter Camp Football Foundation.

In 2012, as a freshman, Adams was a fourth-team All-America selection by Phil Steele and a honorable mention selection by Sports Illustrated.

Adams leads the nation in receptions (122), receptions per game (10.2), touchdown catches (23) and number of games with 10-plus catches (six).

His 23 touchdowns are eight more than any other FBS player and are as many or more than 87 of the 123 FBS teams.

The real question is: NFL Draft 2014 or 2015?
