"Kevin is a monster," Gore said. "I'm telling you. Mark my words. He is going to be a name this year. Everyone is going to be like 'Wow. Who is that guy? He's good.' He's developed his game a lot. He has gotten way stronger and way faster off the ball. He is going to be competing hard this year."

Gore feels that even though the Clemson defensive line suffered heavy losses to the NFL there is still plenty of talent.

"I feel like this D-line this year is not the same, but it is no let off. You know what I mean. It's going to be competing just like we always do. There is no let off. I don't feel like there is any downfall to this year from last year."

Dodd has 21 tackles, three tackles for loss and four quarterback pressures in 219 snaps over 24 games during his Clemson career.
