2008 Preseason All-ACC Offense

Preseason Offensive Player of the Year
RB James Davis, Clemson
In three productive seasons, the All-ACC first teamer has rushed for 3,130 yards and 36 touchdowns, putting him within range of school marks held by Raymond Priester and Travis Zachery, respectively. A tough, 5-11, 210-pound north-south runner, he hits the hole hard, never loses yards, and has a nose for the end zone. Think Emmitt Smith in terms of running style.

2008 Preseason All-ACC
Defense

Preseason Defensive Player of the Year
DT Vance Walker, Georgia Tech
The 6-2, 293-pound Walker was a revelation in his first season as a starter, parlaying 45 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles into a spot on the All-ACC first team. It’s his explosive first step that’s often too much for opposing blockers to handle.
