The 1993 College Football All-America team is composed of college football players who were selected as All-Americans by various organizations and publications that chose College Football All-America Teams in 1993. It is an honor given annually to the best American college football players at their respective positions.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) recognizes seven selectors as "official" for the 1993 season.[1] They are: (1) the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA);[2] (2) the Associated Press (AP) selected based on the votes of sports writers at AP newspapers;[3] (3) Football News;[4] (4) the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA);[5] (4) The Sporting News;[6] (6) the United Press International (UPI); and (7) the Walter Camp Football Foundation (WCFF).[7] Other notable selectors included Gannett News Service (GNS),[8] Scripps Howard (SH),[9] and the Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA).[10]

Ten players were unanimously selected as first-team All-Americans by all seven of the NCAA-recognized selectors, they are: quarterback Charlie Ward of Florida State; running backs Marshall Faulk of San Diego State and LeShon Johnson of Northern Illinois; wide receiver J. J. Stokes of UCLA; center Jim Pyne of Virginia Tech; offensive tackle Aaron Taylor of Notre Dame; defensive tackle Rob Waldrop of Arizona; linebackers Trev Alberts of Nebraska and Derrick Brooks of Florida State; and defensive back Antonio Langham of Alabama.[1] Charlie Ward also won the 1993 Heisman Trophy.
