Thoughts on the 2014 Pre-Season All-ACC Football Team.

The pre-season All-ACC Team for the 2014 was released a couple of days ago. Here are my thoughts on how the media voted.

I like Jamison Crowder at WR. He was in my ACC Top 5 WR list, but  I may have put Tyler Boyd of Pittsburgh ahead of him. Another though is that other than Jameis Winston and Kendall Fuller and a handful of Juniors, the All-ACC team was largely a Senior driven team. I think either RS Junior LB Terrance Smith or Sophomore S Jalen Ramsey of Florida State will make All-ACC. They weren’t a lot glaring commissions though. It was actually job by the ACC media.

We knew Wake Forest and NC State lacked talent. Both were coming off non-bowl seasons, but Georgia Tech without a single All-ACC player just speaks to struggles Paul Johnson has had recruiting to Atlanta. Pittsburgh was also without a All-ACC player, though as I said, I would have voted for Boyd who is a next level talent onto the team.
