Although their results on the field don’t always show it, the Atlantic Coast Conference produces the second-most talent in the NFL, consistently finishing second to the Southeastern Conference in the number of players drafted.
The ACC Champion Florida State Seminoles went on to defeat the Auburn Tigers and win the BCS National Championship in 2013, while the Clemson Tigers, who split regular season games with two SEC powers, the Georgia Bulldogs and the rival South Carolina Gamecocks, defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Orange Bowl, giving the conference two of the five BCS bowl victories.
The biggest reason both the Seminoles and Tigers have been so successful on the field is because of their success on the recruiting trail.
Both teams rank in the top 10 in recruiting for the class of 2015 and several other ACC schools are having success as well.
Let’s have a look at how the classes in the ACC for 2015 are stacking up.
