Venables says freshman defensive backs will have to play

Defensive coordinator Brent Venables told the media Friday that in a perfect world, Clemson's freshman defensive backs would redshirt this season. However, a lack of depth and injury concerns mean half are likely to play. Full Story »



I like the good news from Venables!

Yeah hopefully talent combined with a great work ethic will help them overcome inexperience!


How is this good news.....?

Putting 2 and possibly 3 freshman DBs back there will be the last line of defense for the running game and covering receivers of possibly a top-5 returning offense? You can also believe that it will be the hardest hitting team these freshman will have ever been exposed to, and injuries could grow quickly during the game. This secondary issue is not one for Venables to gloss over and say the guys are working hard. Half of them have only practiced for a week or so.

Couple this with the situation at TE which allows doubling Watkins, and this game could get ugly-especially if UG gets off to a quick start.


???? Whine on , everyone KNEW that at LEAST 4 of the 8

Predicting the 2 deep


Posted: Aug 16, 2013 6:03 PM
 

CB-Breeland/Alexander
CB-Robinson/Peters/Jenkins
SS-Blanks/Kearse
FS-Smith/ Johnson/Geohagan


what cha think?
#21


Alexander and Breeland will be the starters

with Peters and Robinson backing them up. Jenkins is too small for the outside Cb position so he'll be a NB against slot WRs where he excels. He'll man that position with Wiggins.


Alexander came to Clemson to start his frosh year

He did his homework. Drove through Florida on way home yesterday and home fed radio host was saying pro scouts believe Gators have up to six NFL DB's on roster.

Alexander came to Clemson to start this year. He will. The coaches and team needs him.
