Three Tigers named Walter Camp first-team All-America

Three Tigers were named first-team All-America and four total made the Walter Camp All-American honors Thursday.

Christian Wilkins and Clelin Ferrell earned the first-team distinction on the defensive side and Mitch Hyatt was named first-team offensive tackle.

ACC player of the year and Doak Walker Award finalist Travis Etienne picked up second-team honors.

Wilkins won the Campbell Award for the nation's foremost student and athlete this week, in addition to a similar honor from the ACC (Tatum). He has posted 13.5 tackles for loss and five sacks, as well as 52 tackles. Pro Football Focus has Wilkins down for the third-best pass rush grade nationally (90.3) and the most QB pressures in their metrics (36).

Ferrell, who earned the Hendricks Award earlier on Thursday (nation's best DE), leads the ACC with 10.5 sacks and ranks second in the league with 17 TFL.

Pro Football Focus credits Hyatt with only 11 QB pressures allowed in 398 pass blocking snaps.

Etienne ranks 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).
