Syracuse Orange running back Jerome Smith, defensive tackle Jay Bromley and linebacker Dyshawn Davis each were named to Athlon Sports' Preaseason All-ACC Teams on Monday.

Smith, the Orange's leading rusher from last season, was named to the first-team offense, while Bromely and Davis were slotted as third-team defenders. All three were also a part of Phil Steele's Preseason ACC teams.

Despite the accolades, Syracuse was tied with N.C. State for the second fewest players named to the list. Only Maryland and Pittsburgh had a worse total -- two.

As expected, Florida State led the way with 11 players, six were named to the First Team. Clemson had nine players make the list with four being named to the First Team. The complete list can be found here.

To end on a positive note, Syracuse.com's Michael Cohen is reporting that after offseason shoulder surgery Davis seems to recovering well and should be ready to go for Fall camp. According to Syracuse linebackers coach Clark Lea:

"I think he was hang cleaning the other day in the weight room, which puts a lot of stress on that shoulder," Lea said. "So I feel like he's good to go."

Davis missed Spring camp because of the injury.
