Phil Steele take on Clemson DBs is they are ranked 4th

Too high IMO. I love Terrell. I think he's a stud. K. Barnes may be the best we've ever had at forcing turnovers. Those two guys are elite IMO. We also have good veteran play at Safety returning. However, if Terrell gets hurt, we don't have any other proven commodities at CB. Lewis and Lukas have played ok at times, but they've also been torched a lot. It's hard to trust either guy. Maybe Feagin is the answer, but we won't know until he's been forced into the fire.

Dont forget Venebles is coming back. 5th yr Sr will be an asset on the field. Our entire D is above average with blends of older guys and good talent. When all 3 groups are strong, it shoots you up the overall rankings.

It's easy to forget about Venables

Too high imo as well. Not proven enough imo. A work in progress. There is a ton of promise though.

I think old Phil was being generous on this one. Maybe a top 10 - 15 unit but not #4. The potential is there but it's dependent on a lot of young talent stepping up and providing depth. If Lukus stays healthy and plays to his potential he and Terrell could be one of the best CB tandem in college football. Time will tell.

I think Dabo wrote Steele's articles for him this year....so he can motivate

I trust our DL whatever anyone ranks them. LB as well. If our db are anywhere near 4th we’re going to have a top 5 defense this year.

Coach Reed is the #1 DB coach in the nation.
