Default Xavier Thomas

It's hard to believe but Xavier Thomas looks like he is now in even better shape that when he arrived at Clemson. He looks to have thinned up a little. He is going to be a beast coming off the edge.

I can't wait to see him in the opponents' backfield this season!

He is so powerful coming off the edge. Like I said numerous times after the spring game but watching him push 2 guys into the QB just sold me on him being what everybody said he would be. Dude's a beast.

Due to lack of DT in upcoming years, Will he or anybody else be moving inside? Thanks

Hes too lean to be effective inside, right?

Thomas is the prototypical SDE...he isn't moving inside.

We'll have Williams, Pickney, and Jeffries...not including anyone we sign this year. I think you'll see us utilize some odd man fronts at times if depth ends up being an issue.

The numbers don't look great right now for next year, but it's still early. We're going to take a step back at DT, but I think the DL will still be a strength.
