Syracuse DT Jay Bromley Makes Phil Steele's Midseason All-American Team

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

A productive first half of the season helped Syracuse's senior defensive tackle make Phil Steele's Midseason All-American Team.

College football's man-of-the-know, Phil Steele, has named Syracuse Orange defensive tackle Jay Bromley to his Midseason All-American Team, which was released on Thursday.

The honor comes after Bromley compiled six sacks, nine tackles for a loss, three forced fumbles and leads the SU defensive line with 22 tackles. As TNIAAM contributor Dan Lyons pointed out in his midseason evaluations:

"Jay is the best player Syracuse has had on the inside since Art Jones. Bromley has been commanding double teams all season and is still getting great production, and with a strong second half, he may play himself into the draft as a 4-3 tackle or even a 3-4 end for some teams."

Also given kudos by Phil Steele was running back Jerome Smith, linebacker Marquis Spruill and punter Riley Dixon, who each were named to the Midseason All-ACC list. Smith and Spruill were named to the second team, while Dixon made third-team honors.

Currently, Smith leads the ACC in rushing touchdowns (8) and is almost halfway to his second 1,000-yard season. Meanwhile, Spruill has been a staple of the linebacking corps compiling 7.5 tackles for a loss.
