If you’re anxious for my conclusions, this year’s Boston College team looks the same as teams from prior years, it’s just less-experienced. The bad news is that they’re big across the board, and they have depth and talent at RB and TE. The good news is that they are replacing a lot of players (of last year’s 13 1st-, 2nd-, 3rd-, and Honorable Mention all-ACC selections, only two return.) Also good is that the quarterbacks don’t seem to have improved their games much. I’d say the Hokies are reasonably expected to win.
Let’s look a little closer. Here are those all-ACC selections again, with guys still on the team in bold:
1st-Team Offense: RB AJ Dillon, TE Tommy Sweeney, OG Chris Lindstrom
1st-Team Defense: CB Hamp Cheevers
2nd-Team Defense: DE Zach Allen
2nd-Team Specialist: KR/PR Michael Walker
3rd-Team Offense: OT Aaron Monteiro
3rd-Team Defense: DE Wyatt Ray, DT Ray Smith, LB Connor Strachan, S Will Harris
Honorable Mention: OT Ben Petrula, C Jon Baker
