Pro Football Focus–a site that analyzes and grades both college and NFL players–released its All-Conference teams on Tuesday, with UNC cornerback MJ Stewart taking a spot on the All-ACC First Team Defense.
Stewart was the only Tar Heel included on PFF’s All-ACC rosters, which only included 12 players on each side of the ball.
The unquestioned locker room leader for UNC throughout a difficult 3-9 campaign in 2017, Stewart finished his senior season as the program’s all-time leader with 41 pass breakups.
He tallied 12 pass breakups this season, to go along with 45 tackles and two sacks.
Earlier this week, Stewart accepted an invitation to play in the Reese’s Senior Bowl–an event featuring the nation’s top senior prospects ahead of the NFL Draft.
