Boulware will get his chance to create more havoc in 2015

Clemson's 2014 defense was rated as the #1 defense for "raisin' hell" or havoc rate according to the Football Study Hall database.

Havoc rate is defined as a tackle for loss (including sacks), forced fumble or tipped pass and/or intercepted pass.

Clemson had 195 havoc plays in 2014 which was a 23.2 percent havoc rate.

The Tigers were expected to have a ferocious style under Brent Venables, and that's exactly what they did," SBNation said. "They were particularly good up front, finishing with 17 more tackles for loss than anyone else. Now who's gonna replace those two first-round draft picks?"

The Tigers led the nation in total defense in 2014 allowing only 260.8 yards per game. Clemson also led in first downs allowed per game (14.2), third-down conversion defense (27.4%), tackles for loss per game (10.1), sack yardage (356), fewest yards per pass attempt allowed (5.3), fewest yards per play allowed (4.03), fewest plays of 10 yards or more allowed (126), scoring defense vs. FBS teams with a winning record (18.6) and yardage on tackles for loss (553).
