Phil Steele's 2013 College Football Preview will be available in the next couple of weeks, and four NC State players were named to his preseason All-ACC teams.

Leading the way was defensive tackle T.Y. McGill and tight end Asa Watson, two third-team selections.

McGill, a 6-foot-1, 293-pound junior from Jesup, Georgia, started 10 games in 2012, finishing the season with 50 tackles, 10.5 tackles for a loss, five sacks, and seven quarterback pressures.

Watson, an academic All-ACC selection, totaled 24 catches for 282 yards and a touchdown during his junior campaign. The rising senior enters 2013 with lofty expectations.

Also, senior left tackle Robert Crisp and junior defensive tackle Thomas Teal were tabbed four-team picks.

Crisp, a 6-foot-7, 298-pounder from Raleigh, North Carolina, played in eight games last season after missing five with a back injury.

Teal teamed up with McGill to give the Pack one of the league's top tandems at defensive tackle. At 6-foot-1 and 312 pounds, Teal is a major presence in the trenches, and last season he totaled 37 tackles, 9.5 tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, and 13 quarterback pressures.
