There may be some debate about the depth of the ACC this season and how many teams it will place in the NCAA Tournament, but there is little argument that the conference is home to some of the nation's top talent.
North Carolina sophomore center Tyler Hansbrough, Virginia junior point guard Sean Singletary and Duke's Josh McRoberts each earned spots on Rivals.com's preseason All-America teams. Two other players – Boston College's Jared Dudley and Florida State's Al Thornton – were just on the cusp.
All that makes for a fairly easy pick for first-team All-ACC selections.
However, selecting the second team was about as difficult as projecting the league as a whole this season. Virginia senior guard J.R. Reynolds should team with Singletary to create one of the nation's backcourts.
North Carolina's Reyshawn Terry should continue to progress as perhaps the most natural small forward on a talented North Carolina roster.
From then on, none of the selections were easy – even for the freshman team.
Here goes our best shot at predicting the best players in what should be the nation's most unpredictable conference this season.
