17 ACC players named Naguski Trophy Watch List 2020, the most of any conference

More from the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), in conjunction with the Charlotte Touchdown Club: the preseason watch list for the 2020 Bronko Nagurski Trophy.

This group of players is compiled of 98 different defensive standouts from 66 schools; of that group, 17 are from the ACC — the most of any single conference.

    • Rayshard Ashby, Virginia Tech, LB
    • Boogie Basham, Wake Forest, DE
    • Andre Cisco, Syracuse, S
    • Tyler Davis, Clemson, DT
    • Victor Dimukeje, Duke, DE
    • Caleb Farley, Virginia Tech, DB
    • Paris Ford, Pitt, DB
    • Patrick Jones, Pitt, DE
    • Hamsah Nasirildeen, FSU, DB
    • Max Richardson, Boston College, LB
    • Quincy Roche, Miami, DE
    • Gregory Rousseau, Miami, DE
    • James Skalski, Clemson, LB
    • Charles Snowden, Virginia, LB
    • Chazz Surratt, North Carolina, LB
    • Jaylen Twyman, Pitt, DT
    • Marvin Wilson, FSU, DT

This is obviously a solid last of excellent college defenders; however, it’s a bit of surprise that Duke’s Chris Rumph II wasn’t also named to the watch list.
