Clemson QB Deshaun Watson, Pitt RB Conner headline preseason all-ACC team


GREENSBORO, North Carolina — Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson leads the all-Atlantic Coast Conference preseason team.

Watson, the league's preseason player of the year, was one of five Tigers chosen to the team announced Thursday and selected by 163 voting media members earlier this week at its media day.

Watson threw for 1,466 yards and 14 touchdowns as a freshman despite playing just eight games due to injuries.

He was joined by teammates Mike Williams and Artavis Scott at receiver, offensive guard Eric MacLain and defensive end Shaq Lawson.

Reigning ACC player of the year James Conner, a running back from Pittsburgh, was selected along with Pitt receiver Tyler Boyd.

Cornerback Jalen Ramsey was one of four Florida State players picked, while defensive back Kendall Fuller of Virginia Tech was joined by three Hokies teammates.
