First Team Defense

DE-Shaq Lawson, jr., Clemson (132)
DE-Ejuan Price, sr., Pittsburgh (111)
DT-Carlos Watkins, jr., Clemson (101)
DT-Luther Maddy, sr., Virginia Tech (60)
DT-Connor Wujciak, sr., Boston College (60)
LB-Micah Kiser, soph., Virginia (93)
LB-Brandon Chubb, sr., Wake Forest (87)
– Virginia Tech may be the lunch pail defense, but no one deserves the title more than Chubb. Chubb was a key part of a defense that seemed to be running without an offense at times for the Demon Deacons

LB-Keith Kelsey, jr., Louisville (78)
CB-Jalen Ramsey, jr., Florida State (122)
CB-Mackensie Alexander, soph., Clemson (81)
S-Jeremy Cash, sr., Duke (122)
– Duke only plays two linebackers because Cash more than makes up for the third backer. The safety is essentially a rover in the 4-2-5 scheme, and seems to be in every defensive play for Duke. Cash is proof that Coach Cutcliffe is more than just a quarterback guru.

S-Quin Blanding, soph., Virginia (88)
P-Riley Dixon, sr., Syracuse (77)
