NCAA Football: North Carolina State at North Carolina Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

The league announced the 2016 All-ACC teams on Monday afternoon, and NC State has three representatives, though none made the cut for the first team. Matt Dayes and Tony Adams received second-team All-ACC honors, while Bradley Chubb earned third-team All-ACC honors. Jaylen Samuels and Joe Scelfo earned honorable mentions.

Dayes ranks second among ACC running backs in rushing yards (1,119) but even so it’s hard to quibble with the writers’ decision to go with James Conner for the second first-team slot at RB. (Dalvin Cook, of course, has had the other slot locked down for a while. Conner has six more rushing scores this year, and he was also a bit more productive in conference games.
