Lamar Jackson, Louisville Football

The ACC had a banner year in 2016, as Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson claimed the Heisman Trophy, and Clemson hoisted the national championship trophy after beating Alabama in Tampa. The league is poised for another standout season this fall, as Florida State ranks as a projected playoff team by Athlon Sports, with Clemson, Louisville, Virginia Tech and Miami all ranking inside of the top 25. The Seminoles, Tigers and Hokies also return a good chunk of the league’s top talent, as all three programs earn 12 selections on the Athlon Sports 2017 All-ACC team. Pitt (10), Miami (nine) and Duke (nine) round out the next tier.
