The preseason awards are starting to roll in for Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence and RB Travis Etienne. Pro Football focus has named them first team All America.
"Lawrence isn't just the best player on Clemson — he's the best player in the country and might end up as the best we have ever seen in the PFF College era," PFF said. "With his arm talent and great mobility, Lawrence earned an elite 90.0-plus PFF grade as both a true freshman and sophomore. Lawrence has produced 2.9 win shares (WAA) over those two seasons combined, which leads all returning players — regardless of position — by a considerable margin (second is at 2.4)."
Travis Etienne is a two-time ACC Player of the Year, has been named to offseason watch lists for the Doak Walker (top RB) and Maxwell awards.
