  Draft Scout by Conference

  Georgia Tech linebacker Ayinde Eley was one of seven Yellow Jackets players to be recognized by the ACC on its all-conference team, with Eley earning second-team honors and safety LaMiles Brooks, linebacker Charlie Thomas and defensive end Keion White named to the third team. Wide receiver Nate McCollum, running back Hassan Hall and cornerback Zamari Walton all earned honorable mention. It is the second year in a row that seven team members were recognized. It's the first time since 2017 that three players were named to the first, second or third teams. A team leader, Eley finished second in the ACC with 118 tackles, including 9.5 for loss. His tackle total is also tied for 10th in FBS. His four forced fumbles are tied for most in FBS and are as many or more than seven FBS teams, according to cfbstats.

His play is a product of the instincts developed as a sixth-year senior and by giving exceptional effort in practice. In his first year as a starter, Brooks tied for third in the ACC in interceptions with three and tied for 10th in the conference in passes defended. Brooks, a solid open-field tackler and a student of the game, had 52 tackles - fourth most on the team. Perhaps the Jackets' most versatile player, Thomas put together a season stat line reflecting his range of ability and knack for being around the ball - 112 tackles, 10.5 for loss, two sacks, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles. Since 2000, only one other FBS player had equaled or bettered each of those totals in a season. - Atlanta Journal-Constitution
