Where do the Yellow Jackets land in FanSided’s post-spring ACC Power Rankings? 

Georgia Tech landed the No. 6 spot in FanSided’s post-spring ACC Power Rankings.

Tech finished last season with a 9-4 record— fifth in the ACC Coastal.

“The Yellow Jackets enter 2017 with a chance to make a run at the ACC Coastal title with the only team appearing to be in their way is Miami,” FanSided’s Dylan Callaghan-Croley wrote. “The Jackets’ enter 2017 with not many questions outside of looking to find their next quarterback to replace now graduated Justin Thomas. The Jackets defense should be stronger in 2017 and will have to be if they hope to make a run at the ACC Championship. With potentially the best running back in the ACC in Dedrick Mills, the Jackets’ future quarterback should have a little less pressure to perform well on them next season which could be a recipe for success.”

The Yellow Jackets were the second-highest ACC Coastal team ranked on the list behind Miami (No. 4).
