Deshaun Watson, Dalvin Cook headline All-ACC team (media)


Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson and Florida State running back Dalvin Cook were unanimous first-team choices for the media’s All-ACC team, which was voted on by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.

The two sophomores, both Heisman Trophy candidates, were voted as first-teamers on all 50 ballots.

Not surprisingly, Clemson and North Carolina -- who meet Saturday in the ACC championship game -- led the way with 17 and 14 selections, respectively. (UNC’s Ryan Switzer accounted for two.) Florida State was next, with 12 selections.

There were 19 repeat selections from last year’s team.
