  • The ACC Discussion Thread

    I realized that I don't think there is an ACC Discussion thread in here. Anyway. What's everyone's opinion on the ACC this year? I think the ACC has the most talent on the defensive line of any of the conferences. I mean look at these guys

    Michael Johnson DE Georgia Tech
    Everette Brown DE Florida State
    Ricky Sapp and DeQuan Bowers DE Clemson
    Vance Walker DT Georgia Tech
    Vince Oghobasse DT Duke
    Marvin Austin DT UNC
    BJ Raji and Ron Brace DT Boston College

    I'm sure I'm leaving out a few guys too. Overall that's a lot of very talented defensive linemen and should lead to some interesting battles for 1st team All-ACC

      I know Michael Johnson is TEH ROCKZORZ on this site, but I'm taking a wait and see approach with him. All the physical tools, yes, but only 21 tackles and 4 sacks makes me want to wait a bit on him.

      I think DaQuan Bowers is going to be a stud. He tore it up in the Clemson spring game. I think him and Sapp went to the same HS. That's a nightmare for a college OL, let alone a HS one.

        I agree Bowers is going to be a stud.

        Some more quality DL i forgot to add to the list are Clemson DT Dorrell Scott and NC State DE Willie Young(Manny Lawson 2.0)

          Darryl Richards from GT is pretty good as well. That DL should be scary next year.

            The guy to look out for is Allen Bailey, DE from the U. He is an absolute physical speciment at 6'4 287. He was recruited as an LB and is listed as an LB on Miami website but he is going to play DE. Bailey has the ability to be one of the top DE's in college football if his ability can translate into production.

              Bailey tore his pectoral muscle right after spring practice working out so he might not be ready for the beginning of the season. I haven't seen an update on that in a while though so we'll see.

              Definitely right though, he is a freak, had a 38.5 inch vert at 286 pounds. Really can't wait to see him play next year.

              That is correct comahan

                  Who won that game in your avatar?

                  Anyways, I think the ACC is going to be alot better than it's been in previous years. It's recruited well as of late.

                        I think BC is being overlooked again. They did lose a lot of talent, but with Toal coming back I think this defense could be one of the best in the conference. The DL and LB will be amazing, but I think the two most important things will be if the young DBs will step up and will Chris Crane step up. I'm hearing good things about Crane so far, but we'll wait and see whe the season comes. I am confident that Josh Haden will be able to handle the load as a freshman at RB.

                          Not trying to hate on Rolle but with a time like that, I don't see him coming out early.

                            The coaches are treating him like a senior, so I think he's leaving. He does have time to improve on his 40, though. He could just move to linebacker in the NFL.

                              i truly think that is his best move. i think he can be a pretty good weakside backer.
