First one that comes to mind is Andy Headen (1979-'82), starting bandit end on the 1981 National Championship team and the 1982 ACC Championship team. First-Team All-ACC in 1982 and went on to play for the New York Giants and started on the 1986 Super Bowl Championship team.

The next one that comes to mind is Terence Mack (1983-'86), also played bandit end for the Tigers' defense. He was also a First-Team All-ACC selection from Clemson's 1986 ACC Championship team.

John Johnson (1987-'90) followed Mack and also played the bandit end position for the Tigers. He was Second-Team All-ACC in 1989 and '90. The 1990 defense is still considered the greatest defense in Clemson football history.

Back then, the No. 12 at Clemson and the bandit end position went hand-n-hand like the No. 13 at wide receiver does in this era of Clemson football.

Sorry, I got excited with this one. Those three were three of my favorite defensive players growing up.
