Clemson's Sammy Watkins is one of the nation's top receivers.
Florida State, Virginia Tech and Clemson are the clear favorites to win the ACC title in 2012 and there's no shortage of players from those three teams in the top 50 players. Clemson's Sammy Watkins will serve a two-game suspension this year but ranks as the conference's best player. Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas should be better in his second season as the starter, while Florida State is loaded with defensive talent.
Compiling the top 50 players of any conference is never an easy task. However, Athlon established a criteria to help compile the rankings.
