COLUNMBIA, Mo. (Mizzou Football App)- Mizzou Defensive End Shane Ray picked up two more first-team All-American honors Wednesday, making the Junior from Kansas City the university's 13th consensus All-American.

Ray was named a first-team All-American by the Sporting News and American Football Coaches Association Wednesday morning, placing him on three of the four teams released. Ray was honored as a first-team All-American by the Walter Camp Football Foundation on Thursday, but was given just second-team honors from the Associated Press on Tuesday . 

Ray's selection as a consensus All-American makes it consecutive years that the Tigers have had a representative achieve the honor, as defensive end Michael Sam accomplished the feat in 2013. 

Coach Gary Pinkel has now had six players combine for seven consensus All-American honors during his 14 seasons at the University of Missouri. 

Ray is currently viewed as a top five pick in ESPN's Todd McShay's initial 2015 NFL Mock Draft
