2013 Preseason ACC Offensive Player of the Year

Tajh Boyd, QB Clemson

It's his time. A star for the last few seasons, Boyd led the way to an ACC title two years ago and a bowl victory over LSU last season, but he hasn't quite been able to rise up into superstar status on a national scale. While he threw 13 picks last year, he only has 28 for his career to go along with 8,053 yards and 73 touchdowns, and now it's his time to take his game and his team to a whole other level. The stats are nice, and the overall résumé is great, but with his combination of talent and experience he needs to lead the Tigers in the national title chase. A second ACC championship in three years wouldn't be a bad legacy, either.

2013 Preseason ACC Defensive Player of the Year
 
Tim Jernigan, DT Florida State

There's almost no overcoming the loss of Bjoern Werner, Cornellius Carradine, Brandon Jenkins, Everett Dawkins and Anthony McCloud from an NFL-level defensive front, but getting Jernigan back will ease the pain. A big, strong and athletic tackle, he can both get into the backfield and hold up against the run. Now he'll get a chance to show what he can do on a full-time basis as the main man for the line. The Seminole defense will be fantastic again, and he'll be one of the main reasons.
