Clemson posted a pre-camp depth chart on its website recently to give a picture of where the Tigers are going into the start of practice Thursday.
Among the notables on offense, Braden Galloway, who made an impact in his return for the College Football Playoff, is positioned as the starting tight end ahead of JC Chalk and Davis Allen.
On the O-line, Blake Vinson and Will Putnam are pitted as competitors at right guard starting, with the rest of the line being (l-r) returning starter Jackson Carman, Matt Bockhorst, Cade Stewart and Jordan McFadden.
On defense, the starting linebacker trio is Mike Jones Jr. (SLB/NB), backed up by Trenton Simpson or Tyler Venables, with James Skalski in the middle (backed up by Jake Venables and then Kane Patterson) and Baylon Spector at weakside (backed up by Keith Maguire and then LaVonta Bentley).
On the D-line, KJ Kenry and Xavier Thomas are listed as co-starters at one defensive end spot. No. 1-rated player Bryan Bresee is listed third behind starter Tyler Davis and sophomore Ruke Orhorhoro.
Clemson noted that Nyles Pinckney is expected to return to practice and be on future depth charts. Justyn Ross isn't listed because he is out for the season after offseason surgery.
