Clemson - Alabama Depth Chart

INTERESTING NOTES: For all the talk about Clemson's inexperience on the offensive line, no true or redshirt freshmen will start against Alabama in the season opener. In fact, Clemson will actually start four redshirt juniors and a redshirt sophomore.

Junior Kevin Alexander held off freshmen Da'Quan Bowers for the starting strong side end position during preseason camp, but Tommy Bowden said Monday the two would split the snaps "50-50" against Alabama Saturday night.

The starting linebackers look like this: Scotty Cooper at SAM, Brandon Maye at MIKE and Kavell Conner at WILL. However Bowden said Monday night there wasn't much separation however between the first and second team.

SAM linebacker DeAndre McDaniel could also be used at safety if needed as well.

Bowden has also yet to determine a starting punter. The depth chart lists three punters competing for the starting position: Jimmy Maners, Dawson Zimmerman and Richard Jackson.

Clemson will start just three seniors on defense and four on offense in the season opener.
