    CU Buff Nate Solder a consensus All-AmericanColorado left tackle named to Associated Press first team
    By Kyle Ringo Camera Sports Writer

    Colorado senior left tackle Nate Solder was named a first-team All-American by the Associated Press on Tuesday becoming the first CU tackle in the history of the program to earn consensus All-America honors.

    Solder was previously named to the Walter Camp and the Football Writers Association All-America teams. He also is expected to be on The Sporting News All-America team released later this week. A player must be named to at least three of the five major postseason All-America teams to earn consensus status.

    Solder, who was the offensive lineman of the year in the Big 12 Conference and a finalist for the Outland Trophy and the Campbell Trophy, is the 25th player in CU history to earn consensus All-America honors and the first since linebacker Jordon Dizon in 2007. He is the first Buff to achieve the honor on offense since 2001.

    "Being an All-American is something I've always dreamed of, so it's really amazing to me that it happened," Solder said in a press release issued by the school. "I was always told that I could be good, but I never realized it would be to this magnitude."

    Third round pick and starting LT? Don't get what you're trying to say. Also FWIW, Solder is a starting LT in the Big 12, where Veldheer played at D2 Hilsdale.

    Veldheer is good

    The comparison is huge tackle w/ rare athleticism.

    How many other tackels are 6'9" that can run 5 second 40's? Im confused as to how you are confused

    He probably thought you were indicating that Veldheer didn't work out.

    With the way you worded it, I could see why he thought that.

    Our Offensive Line evaluation appears to be almost as bad as our Secondary coaching.

    we need to fire the guy that scouts and rates the offensive linemen or get a better guy to do it because offensive linemen must not be his cup of tea...lol

    "We know how that worked out" only has a negative connotation if youre a pessimist.

    I thought we were all Vehldeer groupies last year?


    Also nice to see Jared Odrick light it up this year......./sarcasm

    At this point I'm an Offensive Lineman groupie. I want anyone who can help improve our run blocking.

    I have been and will always be a Safety groupie(junkie?).

    Pretty much. Just need some bodies.

    Im the opposite w/ ILB's. I dont really like (youtube) scouting them

    Only knock on Solder is his ridiculous last name. Would it kill him to add an 'I' in there?
