Second Team Offense

QB-Marquise Williams, sr., North Carolina (95)
– Williams could have doomed himself after three picks to South Carolina, but the senior quarterback continued to be the engine of the offense. Either finding receivers or running the zone read, Williams has to be accounted for by the opposing team. Later in the year he has been doing less, and that should be scary.

RB-Wayne Gallman, soph., Clemson (115)
RB-Qadree Ollison, fr., Pittsburgh (69)
WR-Travis Rudolph, soph., Florida State (96)
WR-Canaan Severin, sr., Virginia (88)
WR-Mack Hollins, jr., North Carolina (63)
– The former walk-on turned deep threat has some ridiculous numbers. A small number of catches with a high number of touchdowns and big yards per catch. Now if he had one or two less drops…

WR-Kermit Whitfield, jr., Florida State (63)
TE-Jordan Leggett, jr., Clemson (77)
OT-Jon Heck, jr., North Carolina (79)
– Heck has started since his freshman year and now he is finally recognized for his improvement. If he sticks around, UNC should still have a pretty good line next year.

OT-Adam Bismowaty, jr., Pittsburgh (77)
OG-Dorian Johnson, jr., Pittsburgh (49)
OG-Caleb Peterson, jr., North Carolina (45)
– Peterson was also pressed into service early in his career. He is opposite Turner in the line, but you will note there is no problem for the team to run behind him when necessary.

C-Jay Guillermo, jr., Clemson (88)
K-Greg Huegel, fr., Clemson (77)
Spec.-Ryan Switzer, jr., North Carolina (83)
– Switzer keeps setting records. His season was not quite his freshman season, but he still looks to return every punt.
