Jerry Tillery and Julian Love are 1st teamers, surprisingly, Alize Mack is a 2nd teamer.

Congrats to these gents.

Clemson's fearsome D-line has only one first- or second-teamer?

Their DL is insane. The OL will have an incredible challenge

Echo this, they have a great defensive line. Passing game might work though.

I agree... but I feel that our offense can do at least as well as did Syracuse

The OL has a major challenge. They'll need to at extremely well to obtain a stalemate

Reminds me of the 1992 Alabama defensive line

That team had Copeland (top 10), Curry (top 10), and Nunley (2nd round the next year), and smothered that vaunted Miami offense that was expected to steamroll them.

I suspect that our offense will involve a lot of 3 step drops and quick passes to at least partially mitigate the Clemson defensive line.

This NFL draft analysis has 3 Clemson DLs among the top 22 players.

Using the "eye test" Dexter belongs on this list imho. Which defense wants him carrying the ball?

Actually, using the "eye test" and stats (per game played) Dexter belongs on this list.

Agreed, I was just slamming all the douches who wanted Georgia ranked ahead of us for playoffs.

Great but honestly, how does Mack make any All America team?

Solid year

He doubled his career receptions, and came up with quite a few clutch catches. That, plus his blocking technique in the running and passing games has certainly improved to the point where he could be an early to mid round draft pick.

He's still far from being the complete player that we had hoped, though. He also had quite a few drops, and had trouble running some routes as well.

I thought he had a break out year, but it took 4 years!

He is twentieth in catches, and twenty-ninth in receiving yards. He is not some Mercedes Lewis in the run game either.
