Junior cornerback David Amerson has been named to the 2012 Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List which features the best and brightest of the upcoming season's defensive players.

Earlier this week, Amerson was named to the Bednarik Award Watch List.

One of 84 players on the list most likely will receive the Bronko Nagurski Trophy that is awarded annually to the nation's best defensive player by the Football Writers Association of America and the Charlotte Touchdown Club. Every NCAA Division I Bowl Subdivision conference and independents BYU and Notre Dame are represented on the list that is led by 30 standout linebackers.

The FWAA and the Charlotte Touchdown Club will announce five finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy on Nov. 15.

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy winner is chosen from five finalists who are part of the FWAA All-America Team. The FWAA All-America Committee, after voting input from the entire membership, selects the 25-man team and eventually the Bronko Nagurski finalists. Committee members, then by individual ballot, select the winner, the best defensive player in America.

The annual Bronko Nagurski Trophy Banquet presented by ACN will be Dec. 3 at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte, N.C.

Last season, Amerson set the ACC and NC State single-season record for interceptions with 13 that mark ties for second in FBS history. He was named a Walter Camp and ESPN first-team All-American, was the winner of the Jack Tatum Award, and one of three finalists for the Thorpe Award.
