CBS Sports Preseason All America Teams


CBS Sports Preseason All America Teams

A total of 9 players from 4 teams represent the ACC in the CBS Sports Preseason All America first and second teams.

Thirty Division I programs have a player on one of the two rosters. Clemson has three players on the first team roster and four overall.

Ten players were part of the 2017 CBS Sports postseason teams.

There’s a challenge juggling the incredible talent in Division I football when attempting to fill a limited first team roster. If you take umbrage with the picks on the second team, i.e., they should be on the first team, you’ll find no argument here. The one minor and sometimes unspoken guideline in picking players is the year they are in (senior vs sophomore). You’ll also find that players more likely to move on to the NFL are more likely to get a first team nod. Rest assured those aren’t hard and fast rules.
