A lot of youth, but a lot of talent.

As the previous poster indicated, there will be a lot of young talent on the two deep. With past two OL classes, Clemson will fill that left tackle spot with a player that is equally (or possibly more) talented. There maybe be some growing pains with learning the offense but the ACC should be very concerned if Clemson finally has talent in the offensive line to match it's talent at skill positions.

Probably going to end up McFadden and Parks with Leigh being the first sub. I don't think Mayes has the feet to be a tackle. His make-up and skill set remind me a lot of Tyrone Crowder and I think he'd be better off leaning into about 10-15 more pounds and playing inside as a true road grading type OG.

Post Re: With Carman leaving, what is next for Clemson at the tackle positions?

In spite of the recent recruiting I remain uneasy about the improvement of our offensive line. Carman did not get better. In fact, he flat out looked bad at times this past season. Mitch Hyatt was one of the few Clemson O-linemen to start all four years. I really don't think he got much better by the time he was a senior. Not surprisingly, he did not make an NFL team.

Something has to give. I observe what I believe to be poor technique in pass protection and run blocking. Run blocking is the one that has the most issues. It just does not make sense that we can't consistently open holes for our RBs. Our pattern in play calling is to open up the running game by throwing the ball. Wouldn't it be nice to simply be able to run the ball more consistently?

Our O hasn't been that great in years but it has certainly been better than this past year. What was the difference? C? Lack of experience?

We have started recruiting better. Not at the level of Bama, OSU, Wisc, ND, etc. but it's still not bad at all. Is that what it's gonna take? More or better coaching? Just get the right combo of guys together? Play calling? Better balance? Are other teams stealing signs from us? lol
