NFL.com Predicts ACC Stat Leaders

Mike Huguenin of NFL.com has an interesting piece up today in which he attempts to predict the ACC players who will lead the league in the biggest statistical categories.

Jameis Winston is the obvious choice when it comes to passing yards, and Miami's Duke Johnson gets the nod for rushing yards. As far as receiving yards are concerned, Huguenin predicts a familiar name will make his mark on the conference.

Receiving yards: Louisville WR DeVante Parker

Buzz: Even without Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback, Louisville seems likely to throw the ball all over the place with Bobby Petrino as its new coach. And that's good news for Parker (6-3, 208), a physical marvel who had 885 receiving yards last season. Duke's Jamison Crowder is the leading returnee in this category in the ACC, and while he seems likely to have a third consecutive 1,000-yard season, the thought here is Parker will have a bigger campaign as a senior.

He good.
