ACC Football 2018 All-Conference Team

Athlon projects the ACC's best for 2018.

With a standout defense and an explosive offense in place, Clemson is once again the team to beat in the ACC and one of the favorites to win college football’s national title in 2018. The Tigers have 15 selections on Athlon’s 2018 All-ACC Team, which is easily the most of any team in the conference. Florida State is second with 11 picks, followed by Boston College and NC State with nine. Miami, Wake Forest, Virginia and Duke are tied in the next tier with eight selections apiece.

 

Athlon Sports has released its top 25 for 2018. 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 2018.

 

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2018. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2018 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
