ACC Football 2017 All-Conference Team

Athlon projects the ACC's best for 2017.

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.

 

Athlon Sports has released its top 25 for 2017. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2017.

 

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2017. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2017 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
