Preseason camp preview: RT

Landon Walker leads the way for a unit that lacks experienced depth entering the start of preseason camp.

1. Landon Walker, RS Sr.
2010: Walker played 805 snaps over 13 games at right tackle. He had at least one knockdown block in each game and totaled 30 for the season.

This spring: It was business as usual for Walker, who's played 2,098 snaps in 39 games [35 starts] in his college career.

Heading into the fall: A minor knee operation in late July is not expected to keep Walker out of any preseason practices, but it is worth monitoring throughout August. Now a redshirt senior, Walker is also emerging as one of the vocal leaders of the offensive line and the offense in general.



2. Gifford Timothy, RS Fr.
2010: The former two-star Delaware spent his first year as a redshirt. Was listed after spring practice at 6-feet-6 inches tall and 335 pounds.

This spring: Timothy was named Walker's backup when the post-spring depth chart was released but hasn't really made significant noise in his young career thus far outside of that.

Heading into the fall: Depth behind Walker is one of the top concerns for head coach Dabo Swinney. Aside from some potential mixing and matching along the offensive line, there is no experience behind Walker. That makes Timothy's development imperative for this season and the foreseeable future.



3. Reid Webster, RS Fr.
2010: Webster was a three-star prospect coming out of Woodstock, Ga. He redshirted his freshman year in Tigertown.

This spring: Was not named to the two-deep depth chart after its release.

Heading into the fall: Webster could provide depth at either tackle or guard this fall.
