A look at Clemson’s projected defensive depth chart


With spring practice complete, Clemson will eventually release its post spring depth chart.

At the moment, head coach Dabo Swinney and his staff are meeting with their players to go over what they want to see them get accomplished in summer workouts. The team will not officially get back to practice until late July or August for fall camp, but the players will still do skill-and-drills work for the next four months.

With that said, here is The Clemson Insider’s projected post-spring depth chart on defense.

Note: This projected depth chart only includes players currently on campus
