2007 Preseason All-ACC Offense

Offensive Player of the Year
QB Matt Ryan, Boston College
Ryan was the best quarterback in the ACC last year, completing 62% of his passes for 2,942 yards and 15 touchdowns with ten interceptions, and he did it with a broken foot for most of the year. The 6-5, 218-pound senior ran for four touchdowns, but he's not exactly a runner and he doesn't exactly fit what the coaching staff might want. Even so, Jeff Jagodzinski is a huge Ryan fan, going out of his way to praise him this spring. Ryan's a great decision maker, tough as nails, and has a great future at the next level. No, he's not going to tear off and big runs, but he's mobile in the pocket and does a great job of avoiding the rush.

2007 Preseason All-ACC Defense

Defensive Player of the Year
LB Vince Hall, Virginia Tech
The 6-0, 240-pound Hall, who plays in the middle, led the ACC in tackles last year with 129, and has 241 over the last two years, while also showing off impeccable timing when it came to get into the backfield making two sacks, eight quarterback hurries and 10.5 tackles for loss. Even though he didn't do too much against the pass last season, he's shown good quickness and instincts in pass coverage throughout his career. With his big-hitting style and skills, he'll make several All-America teams.
