USA Today released their 2017 Preseason All-America teams recently and Clemson duo Mitch Hyatt and Dexter Lawrence were named on their first team while Christian Wilkins was on the second team.

Hyatt was a stalwart on Clemson's National Championship team as he didn't give up a sack the whole season in a passing situation.

Lawrence had 78 tackles including 9.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks during his freshman campaign in 2016. He was named ACC Freshman Defensive Player of the Year and Freshman All-American for those efforts.

Wilkins had 56 tackles, 13 tackles for loss including 3.5 sacks in 2016. Wilkins was first-team All-American according to the Football Writers of America and the American Football Coaches Association, a second-team selection by USA Today, Sporting News and Walter Camp, and a third team choice by Associated Press.
