The Atlantic Coast Conference coaches have spoken, and they've tipped their caps to several Seminoles in doing so.

A handful of Florida State standouts received the nod as first team All-ACC Coaches' team selections on Wednesday. Dalvin Cook and Rod Johnson made the first-team offense, Jalen Ramsey and Nile Lawrence-Stample are on the defensive first team, and Roberto Aguayo was named the first-team kicker.

Second-team honors were bestowed upon Kermit Whitfield (as a reciever-- he was named a third-team returner) and Reggie Northrup, while DeMarcus Walker was tapped for the third team. Travis Rudolph and Kareem Are earned Honorable Mentions.

All 14 ACC coaches vote on the teams and awards (the 'Noles were shut out for the latter), with no coach able to vote for his own players. Marquez White, Derrick Nnadi, Josh Sweat, Derwin James, Ro'Derrick Hoskins, Lamarcus Brutus and Cason Beatty certainly could have garnered consideration for the ALL-ACC teams, although James does show up in the award voting. The recipients of the All-ACC Coaches awards and their full All-ACC teams are included here:
