PRO FOOTBALL FOCUS: 2016 All-ACC Teams

Pro Football Focus, a service that grades film of every college football game, released their All-ACC football teams this week, and NC State placed one player on the first team with three others taking home second-team honors.

Leading the way was junior Airius Moore, a first-team selection at linebacker.  Moore didn't make any of the teams voted on by the league's media.

Moore finished the year with 77 tackles, and his 11 tackles for a loss is the third-most in the ACC by a linebacker.  He consistently received high grades all season from PFF, including spots on the publications national team of the week in weeks 2 and 11.

"Airius Moore sets the agenda for the Wolfpack defensively," wrote Pro Football Focus.

NC State junior Bradley Chubb was named second-team All-ACC defensive end by Pro Football Focus.  He was named honorable mention All-ACC by the media and was a third-team pick by the league's coaches. Chubb is tied for second in the conference with 20.5 tackles for loss this season, a mark that places him fourth nationally. He has posted a tackle for loss in each of the past six games, and in 10 of the 12 games this season. Chubb also ranks fifth in the ACC in sacks with 9.0. 

NC State senior Jack Tocho was named second-team All-ACC at corner by Pro Football Focus. Tocho didn't make any of the teams voted on by the league's media.  

He finished the year with 36 tackles and his 11 passes defended ranked ninth in the ACC.  Tocho allowed completions on just 45.3% of the targets he faced this season.

The Wolfpack's final second-team selection was junior safety Josh Jones.  Jones led NC State in tackles with 106, sixth-most in the ACC, and his 10 passes defended was 11th-best in the conference.  

Jones was tabbed an honorable mention All-ACC safety by the media.
