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.
