Default Which LB's will surprise this year?

There is concern at LB heading into this season. We have heard the names that are the starters heading into camp. Who are the names that will surprise this year?

I dont know if it would be a surprise, not to Clemson fans anyway, but I expect Skalski to have a big year

I want to see what Chad Smith can do now that he is a starter.

Skalski and Simmons are All-ACC type players at minimum. It'll be interesting to see how much Chad Smith plays, you may see Mike Jones a bit. I think we operate in nickel quite a bit so you may see more DB's getting involved. Simmons can certainly do a ton, just not sure how we operate from a scheme standpoint. Will he be in the box more....if Chad Smith proves capable, then yes.

I'm more worried about injury in the back 7 than anything. This is a very good group we're bringing back.
