Clemson releases 2015 Summer Depth Chart

Clemson’s two-deep features eight starters who are seniors, 11 who are juniors and five who are sophomores. No freshmen are listed as starters, but eight are listed as backups, including four on the offensive line

Clemson has 11 returning starters, seven on offense, three on defense and one on special teams. This is the fewest total returning starters Clemson has had since the 2007 season when the Tigers also had 11.

This is the fewest returning defensive starters Clemson has had since the 1979 team, Danny Ford’s first full season, had just three. That Clemson defense led by All-American Jim Stuckey and all-time leading tackler Bubba Brown, finished the season third in the nation in scoring defense (8.4), seventh in total defense (237.5) and 10th in rushing defense (117.5). The 237.5 total defense figure for that team was better than the 2015 team had (261). Last year’s Clemson team led the nation in total defense.

The last time Clemson had just three returning defensive starters also was the last season Clemson played Notre Dame (1979). Clemson held Notre Dame to 10 points in South Bend in a 16-10 Clemson victory. That is the second fewest points Notre Dame has scored on Senior Day since 1970.

Clemson has just 43 returning lettermen, 22 on offense, 20 on defense and one on special teams. This is the fewest returning lettermen Clemson has had since the 2003 season when that team also had 43 returning lettermen.
While Clemson has just 10 returning starters from the offensive and defensive units combined, the 22 starters listed on the depth chart include 20 players who have started at least one game. Kevin DoddKevin Dodd
