Ryan Finley, NC State Wolfpack Football

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.
