Six players were taken in the first round, followed by eight in the second round, 11 in the third round, seven in the fourth round, seven in the fifth round, nine in the sixth round and three in the seventh round.

The ACC’s total includes nine from Notre Dame who played in the conference last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Without the nine from the Fighting Irish, the 42 traditional ACC selections tied for the fifth-most in league history.

Pitt led the league with six selections, followed by five from Clemson and North Carolina, four from Duke, Florida State, Miami and Virginia Tech, two from Boston College, Georgia Tech, Louisville and Syracuse and one each from NC State and Wake Forest.
