CFN 2017 ACC Offensive Player of the Year

QB Lamar Jackson, Jr. Louisville

He might not have won the Heisman, and he might not have led the Cardinals to a splashy national stature, but he still came up with a fantastic year, completing 60% of his passes for 3,489 yards and 25 touchdowns with six interceptions, and running for 1,443 yards and 17 scores.

CFN 2017 ACC Defensive Player of the Year

DE Bradley Chubb, Jr. NC State

The tone-setting star for the Wolfpack line each and every week, Chubb made 73 tackles with ten sacks and 25 tackles for loss despite being Job One by every blocking scheme. He crushed Boston College with five tackles for loss, hit FSU with two sacks, and cranked up the production against just about everyone else.

CFN 2017 ACC Coach of the Year

Dabo Swinney, Clemson

Oh sure, he had a loaded team to work with. Yeah, but he lost Deshaun Watson, Mike Williams, Jordan Leggett, Artavis Scott and Wayne Gallman off the national championship offense, lost leading tackler and heart-and-soul leader Ben Boulware off the defense – along with star lineman Carlos Watkins and top defensive backs Jadar Johnson and Cordrea Tankersley – and he still has the No. 1 team going into the College Football Playoff.
