View Full Profile were named to CBSSports.com 2012 Preseason All-ACC Team on Monday. Several other Tigers were listed in the also considered category.
Andre Ellington, Clemson - Even though 2011 was another season dealing with nagging injuries, Ellington ran for 1,178 yards and a career-high 11 touchdowns. Ellington's teammates say he is entering his senior season the healthiest he has ever been, and if he can stay that way he should be able to top last season's numbers once again.
Sammy Watkins, Clemson - After pulling in 83 catches for 1,225 yards and 12 touchdowns, the ACC Preseason Player of the Year and CBSSports.com Preseason All-American carries big-time expectations heading into his second season with the Tigers. Luckily, the defending ACC Champions have enough talent throughout the depth chart that defenses cannot afford to isolate the speedy Watkins. However, if defenses do zone in on No. 2, look for offensive coordinator Chad Morris to find more creative ways to get the ball in Watkins' hands.
