FSU football puts five on preseason All-ACC team



Florida State placed five players on the preseason All-ACC team, the league announced this morning.

Running back Dalvin Cook, offensive tackle Roderick Johnson, defensive end DeMarcus Walker, safety Derwin James and receiver Travis Rudolph were all selected. The ACC doesn't do second- or third-team honorees.

Miami's only representative is punter Justin Vogel, a former Gator and Berkeley Prep alum. Clemson receiver Artavis Scott (East Lake High) was one of 10 Tigers chosen.

It's worth noting that Heisman Trophy frontrunner Deshaun Watson wasn't a unanimous selection at quarterback; he received 188 of 191 votes by the media (including mine). Miami's Brad Kaaya, Louisville's Lamar Jackson and North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky all got one vote each.
