3. TOP DUKE PLAYERS

Best Duke Offensive Player

RB/KR Deon Jackson, Jr. 
The 6-0, 220-pounder did a little bit of everything for the Blue Devils. He led the team with 847 rushing yards with seven scores – averaging over five yards per carry – caught 26 passes for 253 yards and two scores, and he used his straight-line speed as a dangerous kickoff returner averaging close to 22 yards per pop.

2. QB Quentin Harris, Sr.
3. C Jack Wohlabaugh, Jr.
4. RB Brittain Brown, Jr.
5. OG Rakavius Chambers, Jr.

Best Duke Defensive Player

CB Mark Gilbert, Jr. 
The 6-1, 175-pound junior picked off seven passes and made 35 stops as an all-star in 2017, but he went down right out of the gate last year with a hip injury. On the plus side, it happened in the second game of the season to not only preserve a redshirt season, but it also was early enough to give him time to heal. Once he’s back to 100% – he’s expected to be by the start of the season – he’ll be among the ACC’s best corners.

2. S Dylan Singleton, Sr.
3. DE Victor Dimukeje, Jr.
4. S Marquis Waters, Jr.
5. S Leonard Johnson, Soph.
