and didn't put up the numbers to compete with an Ed Oliver, the Maa'tafa guy, Hurst from Michigan, Vea from UW or even our very own Christian Wilkins. with all of those guys back this year, it just stands to reason that Big Dex is going to have to make some bodies hit the ground this year... and if he does, the NFL will make him an offer he can't refuse, so, a healthy Big Dex is going be just fine and really make our DLine one of the best to ever do it, no matter who recognizes him from a publication or not...

The other issue is that they don't differentiate between DE & DT. Everyone is listed as DL, so they have more DE's than DT's through the whole list.

If he stays healthy, as is as productive as we know he's capable, He'll be a top 10 pick in the draft.


I'm a little surprised

With the roster going down to a 4th team that ETN and/or Higgins are mentioned...lack of significant playing time so far maybe?

Keep in mind that these are All-American teams as opposed to All-ACC. There are only a total of 8 WR's and 8 RB's on all four teams that are being selected from 130 teams. There's no doubt that both Tee Higgins and Travis Etienne are both talented enough to put up the kind of numbers needed to be named as an All-American, but based off of each of their production last year the numbers don't warrant them being mentioned as one of the top 8 players at their position in the nation. When the real All-American teams are selected at the end of the year there is a very good chance that one or both of them will end up being selected.

I love seeing Clelin getting the love. He seems like a REAL solid guy and sorta flew under the radar until last year. He deserves every good thing that come his way.
