Front Page Story: Defense 2014: Who will step in to provide depth?

Defense 2014: Who will step in to provide depth?

Clemson's defense might be better in 2014 with an experienced defensive line and solid middle linebacker in Stephone Anthony. The safety spots also appear solid, but depth is needed, especially at cornerback. Full Story »



Boulware seem to be another Shuey - it will take time for

him to make first team. I sure hope Stewart plays like he is capable of and can really hold off Boulware?


If Boulware stays at Mike look for him to start after this

season when Anthony leaves.

I think Boulware could be a first teamer this coming year, if it were anyone other than Anthony ahead of him. He reminds me of Luke Kuechly in a way.

Maybe he will learn another spot. My guess is the coaches will shuffle player positions if they think it is best

Good article Nicki, but I thought you were fired shortly after picking the Ohio State over Clemson in the Orange Bowl. :)


I feel real good about the D next year. Real Good.

Very, Very Excited. Very, Very Proud.


Secondary

I think this will be the year the WHOLE defense comes together. I think with who is there, they will be stingy. I see MA, and GP/MJ at the corners and TB and Wiggins at safties. I think Kearse will continue to come in, but I think Kearse has a firm grip on that job as of now. I see Blanks working his tail off to get it back.

Kearse should have the safety spot on lock. He made a few mistakes but has shown that he is better than Blanks IMO. I believe Wiggins will earn a spot, and the suprises will be J.Johnson and Marcus Edmond. Both had good camps and scrimmages. If you look back at the highlights from camp you see alot of Johnson and Edmond. Venables clearly stated that they went with experience over talent. Now all of these guys have experience. I don't see Smith or Blanks keeping the starting spots. The younger guys are too physical and have too much speed.

IMA opinion it will be hard to keep Tankersley out of the starting lineup at corner. Coach V did go with experience over talent this past season and they have moved Tank back to his natural position of corner. I cannot see how you keep the fastest corner off the field and also the biggest.Kearse will not stay at safety for too long, he is going to gain weight on that frame and would be better suited for the SAM position. Marcus Edmond is a little more athletic then Johnson and Wiggins. Smith is a liability in the passing game and Blanks didn't fare to much better but he was playing hurt I think.


Carlos

We seem to forget when Carlos was healthy he was a co- starter with Josh. I anticipate he will be back were he left off.


Re: Carlos

Carlos started a game or 2 before his accident and Josh will require off season surgery so he had an injury as well... I do not think he was full speed after mid season.
I expect both of them to have a big impact next season. It would not surprise me if we had 3 DTs on the field at times.


We have lots of depth at tackle


Posted: Jan 9, 2014 9:55 PM
 

I hope we rotate rotate rotate.... And wear them out. It'll be nice to see a team that you see no drop off with substitutions .... All the way three deep

I wish we would consider getting some experienced JUCO guys


Posted: Jan 9, 2014 10:10 PM
 

Just seems like there have to be some top guys out there that want to come to Clemson.


For what position?


Posted: Jan 10, 2014 3:17 PM
 

We seem pretty deep on the defensive side of the ball. I'd rather have a redshirt SO in his 3rd year at Clemson than a JUCO Junior who spent two years elsewhere.


Kicker position

Robby Lowman, a walk on kicker that will be starting conditioning this spring, is by far better than both Alex spence and Ammon Lakip. He will be the next reliable Catman.

Dorian O'Daniel?


He'll fight for the SAM position***


Posted: Jan 10, 2014 8:45 AM
 




Number 10


Posted: Jan 10, 2014 11:21 AM
 

will play somewhere. You don't keep players like that on the bench. 42 will be an all american


Wouldn't be suprised to see Jones, Anthony and BB starting


Posted: Jan 10, 2014 11:27 AM
 

TJ Burell is solid but like QC I don't see him being great physically compared to Jones, Steward, Goodson, and O'Daniel.


Re: Wouldn't be suprised to see Jones, Anthony and BB starting

Seem like we have a great problem to have with the entire defense. Finding a place for so much talent. Tag team motto. Play them all. Orange unit and then the Purple unit.
