SI Publishers Select 2020 Pre-Season All ACC Team

Punter Trenton Gill was the only NC State player to earn a spot on the preseason All-ACC team chosen by the publishers of the Sports Illustrated's ACC team sites

The publishers of Sports Illustrated's ACC team sites have selected their 2020 preseason all-conference team.

Each publisher had one vote and was able to choose a single position player at QB, TE, RB, PK and Punter, two at DE/DT/CB/S, three linebackers and wide receivers, and five offensive linemen regardless of position. 

There were six unanimous selections: Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne, Jackson Carman of Clemson, Paris Ford (Pittsburgh), Max Richardson (Boston College) and Marvin Wilson (Florida State).

Surprisingly, Clemson didn't have the most selections. That honor went to Virginia Tech with four. Clemson did come in a close second with three, tied with Florida State, Pitt, and Wake Forest.

Not surprisingly, NC State had only one player picked -- punter Trenton Gill. But at least the Wolfpack is represented. Virginia and Georgia Tech didn't get anyone on this year's team.

Here are the selections, as compiled by A.J. Black of Si's BC Bulletin:
