Clemson football roster outlook

All our predictions are based on the Tigers starting team with these key players:

  • QB – DJ Uiagalelei
  • RB – Will Shipley, Kobe Pace, Phil Mafah
  • WR – Joseph Ngata, Beaux Collins, Brannon Spector, Dacari Collins, EJ Williams
  • TE – Davis Allen, Jake Briningstool

While several Clemson players have moved on to the pros, head coach Dabo Swinney is staying put. Coming off a 10-3 season in 2021, Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei returns for his junior year and will have Will Shipley with him in the backfield. Justyn Ross has moved on to the NFL, but Joseph Ngata and Beaux Collins return for what should be big seasons.

The real story is the defense. After allowing the second fewest points in the nation a year ago, linebacker Trenton Simpson leads a star-studded team in 2022. With Bryan Breese, Tyler Davis and Myles Murphy forming the defensive line, the Tigers should have no problem winning the battle of the trenches.

It’s hard to find a game on the schedule that poses a real problem for Dabo’s team. There are a few that could make life difficult for a few quarters, but Clemson just has so much talent on defense that it probably gives them the edge. The receivers will have to prove themselves, but a healthier rushing attack and the expected growth of Uiagalelei should carry this team all the way.
