Ranking the best 100 players in the Atlantic Coast Conference ahead of the 2018 season.

Welcome back to my annual preseason ranking of the top 100 players in the ACC. Earlier this year, we debuted a postseason ranking for the first time. As such, this allows for the preseason iteration to include a bit more projection, where as, in years past, it was more of a career achievement award.

Still, the best way to think about it is as a "Madden​" rating. If you were to sort every ACC player by an overall grade, regardless of positional value, this is the order they would show up in.

The list will be updated 20 players at a time over the course of this week.
