While the offensive line may be a strength overall, filling the center position might just be the most understated concern for the 2017 Tigers.

People may not realize quite how critical Jordan Leggett was to the Tigers’ championship season. He had the game winning catch against FSU and a huge diving reception in the National Championship to set-up the eventual game-winning play. 736 receiving yards will be hard to replace, but Milan Richard will try.

Despite the departures of Mike Williams and Aravis Scott, Clemson has a strong group of wide receivers, headlined by Deon Cain. It should be a strength which will benefit the new starting QB!

Lastly, we know Kelly Bryant is the most likely starter at QB come week 1. What does that mean for the Tigers and what do they need from their starting QB.
