Florida State junior cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. was named to the All-ACC first team on Tuesday morning.

Samuel Jr. led FSU with three interceptions and also had 31 tackles and six pass breakups. On Nov. 29, Samuel announced he was entering the 2021 NFL Draft.

The 5-foot-10, 184-pound Samuel is considered a first- or second-round draft pick going into the 2020 season. TheAthletic.com’s Dane Brugler has Samuel at 29th on his top 50 for the 2021 draft.

Defensive tackle Marvin Wilson was named to the second team. The senior had 17 tackles, two quarterback hurries and one sack. He has also declared for the NFL Draft.

Each of the league’s 15 teams placed at least one player on the All-ACC Teams, which were chosen by a vote of a select 49-member media panel and the league’s 15 head coaches. Three points were awarded for each first-team vote, two points for each second-team vote and one point for each third-team selection.
