Three Tigers named to 2015 ESPN All-ACC preseason team

ESPN released its 2015 All-ACC preseason team
on Monday morning and three Tigers made the cut.

Clemson sophomore Deshaun Watson was an obvious selection at quarterback.

"We gave the spot to Watson because of his tremendous upside and the weapons around him, but Georgia Tech’s Justin Thomas and Miami’s Brad Kaaya are right on his heels," ESPN said about Watson.

Watson completed 67.9% of his passes for 1,466 yards (10.7 per attempt) and 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions and had a quarterback rating of 188.57 in his rookie campaign.

Clemson junior wide receiver Mike Williams, was selected in a very competitive ACC wide receiver group including over his fellow teammate Artavis Scott.

, has a good case for All-ACC honors, too, but we opted for Williams’ big-play ability over Scott’s elusiveness.," ESPN stated. Williams had 57 catches for 1030 yards and six touchdowns in 2014.

Finally, Clemson had a defensive player picked with Shaq Lawson's selection.
