Three Tigers make AP first-team All-America

Three Tigers were named to the Associated Press All-American first team on Monday.

Offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt and defensive tackle Christian Wilkins improved on second-team honors last season to the first-team selection this season. Defensive end Clelin Ferrell posted a second-straight season with AP first-team honors.

ACC player of the year Travis Etienne rounds out the AP selections on the second team, after ranking in the top-10 nationally in total touchdowns 2 (22), rushing touchdowns 3 (21), rushing yards per carry 5 (8.31), rushing yards 5 (1,463) and rushing yards per game 10 (112.5).

Ferrell earned the Ted Hendricks Award honor for the nation's top defensive end with 10.5 sacks and 17 TFL. His D-line teammate Wilkins was a finalist for the Bednarik, Outland and Nagurski awards - among more - with 52 total stops, 13.5 for loss, with five sacks and an ACC-leading 36 QB pressures (per Pro Football Focus).

Hyatt was a back-to-back ACC Jacobs Blocking Trophy winner and has allowed just 11 pressures in 398 pass blocking snaps this season per PFF.
