ESPN teamed up with Marvel to create some awesome college football kickoff covers.

ESPN recently released their ACC preseason position rankings for receivers/tight ends, and guess who’s on top? You guessed it, Mike Williams and the boys! The Tigers receivers are as experienced, and talented as they come.

Dabo being Dabo:

Dabo Swinney is one of my favorite personalities in college football, he appears passionate about almost anything he does, whether it be coaching, or dancing with his team after a win. Swinney recently appeared on an episode of undercover boss for Clemson’s new football facility. It is not hard to see why recruits take a liking to Coach Swinney.

Former Tigers:

Mackensie Alexander, and Jayron Kearse performed well in their NFL debuts this past week. Alexander, and Kearse each recorded interceptions in the Minnesota Vikings preseason game vs the Cincinnati Bengals.

Tajh Boyd is staying busy while waiting for another shot at professional football. The former all-american has been distributing back packs and supplies to local elementary school students on behalf of his foundation. Boyd is also apart of a new football academy in Greenville, SC called 100yds.com.

Young Bucks:

Clemson’s freshman class continues to impress. On the defensive side of the ball Tre Lamar, Dexter Lawrence, Ka’von Wallace, and Trayvon Mullen, are names that are continuously brought up by both players and coaches in the program.

With the recent injuries to Austin Bryant, and Xavier Kelly, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Christian Wilkins kick out to defensive end, and Dexter Lawrence come in at defensive tackle. Lawrence seems to have earned the trust of his teammates and coaches.

Leading up to Auburn:

Special teams may have been the Tigers only weakness as a team last season, but, it cost them a national championship. In a recent interview, Dabo Swinney spoke about the special teams improvement coming into the 2016 season, specifically Greg Huegel.

This kid has really worked in the off-season but, umm I think about every kickoff he had was about 3 or more yards deep in the end-zone.
