All ACC First Team

OT Liam Eichenberg, Sr., Notre Dame
Eichenberg is the best tackle in the league, and I don’t think it’s all that close. The Irish veteran did not allow a single sack last season, and when he’s on his game he can be dominant. If all he does is repeat his 2019 performance he’ll likely still be the league’s best tackle.

OT Robert Hainsey, Sr., Notre Dame
A case could be made for Clemson’s Jackson Carman or BC’s Tyler Vrabel, but I’m predicting a healthy breakout season for Hainsey. He’s been steady his entire career, but now a senior I expect Hainsey to continue his pass blocking dominance while improving his run game skills.

OG Zion Johnson, Sr., Boston College
Johnson often gets overlooked on a talented BC line, but he was quite good last season. He’s a strong run blocker that gave up just eight quarterback pressures last season and didn’t allow a single sack (per Pro Football Focus).

OG Bryce Hargrove, Sr., Pittsburgh
Hargrove barely beat out a couple of other quality guards, including Notre Dame’s Tommy Kraemer and Aaron Banks. It’s easy to overlook him because he’s beside Morrissey, and he must improve in the run game, but he’s a steady player.

C Jimmy Morrissey, Sr., Pittsburgh
Morrissey began his career as a walk-on, but he won the starting center job as a redshirt freshman in 2017. He was a third-team All-ACC pick in 2018 and a first-team pick in 2019. He’s clearly the best center in the league.
