The college football season is quickly approaching, and the preseason watch lists that rank the best players at each position in the country are coming out. Several evenings ago, I joined Mark Rogers and Mike McDaniel to rank the 5 best quarterbacks in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

There was a clear number one in this category, as Deshaun Watson was a unanimous slam dunk for this honor. He threw for more 4,000 yards last season, while completing 68% of his passes, and tossing 35 touchdowns to just 13 interceptions. In addition to his ridiculous arm talent, he ran for more than 1,000 yards and also had double-digit rushing touchdowns.

After that, there was a lot of interesting debate. Who rounded out our top 5’s? Do you all agree? Let us know in the comments section below.

As always, many thanks to Mark for having me on to discuss ACC football. You can follow him on Twitter @MarkRogersTV, and also subscribe to his YouTube channel. He does an excellent job of covering all things college football.
