Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins was named a first-team All-American by Pro Football Focus on Monday.

Wilkins has led the ACC in QB pressures (36) and ranks third-best nationally in pass-rush grade per PFF (90.3). Wilkins, who was already a two-time All-American, is a finalist for the Bednarik and Outland awards this week and was also a finalist for the Nagurski Trophy Monday.

Fellow PFF ACC first-team DT Dexter Lawrence picked up an honorable-mention tag from PFF.

All-ACC receivers in Tee Higgins and Justyn Ross were named to the All-American second team and honorable-mention groups respectively.
