ESPN rolled out its All-ACC and freshman All-American honors on Tuesday with Clemson reps on each.

After earning three first-team All-Americans on Monday, Trevor Lawrence and Xavier Thomas made the freshman All-American team ($).

Lawrence was named ACC Player of the Year by Pro Football Focus recently and added another up ACC Freshman of the Year honor from ESPN on Tuesday. Defensive leader Christian Wilkins picked up ESPN's ACC Player of the Year award and Dabo Swinney was named Coach of the Year.

Six Tigers earned ESPN first-team All-ACC honors in all, with three on offense and defense each.

ESPN All-American and conference-designated ACC Player of the Year Travis Etienne leads the offensive side, along with sophomore receiver Tee Higgins and senior offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt. Per ESPN, no Power 5 back with as many rushing yards as Etienne has had a yards per carry average as high as the Louisiana native (8.31).

ACC Defensive Player of the year Clelin Ferrell and Butkus Award finalist Tre Lamar join Christian Wilkins on ESPN's All-ACC defense. Wilkins ranks third nationally in pass-rush grade (90.3), totaling 36 QB pressures according to Pro Football Focus.
