Updated Depth Chart

Posted by cuorange on August 24, 2009

cuorange_exclusiveClemson released an updated depth chart yesterday and while there doesn’t appear to be any huge changes, there are some interesting ones.

First, the battle at right tackle is being won by Cory Lambert.  At this point, I’m not sure if this is a positive reaction to the way Lambert has played in camp or a negative reaction to Landon Walker’s camp play.  Let’s just say this is not the strongest position on the line.

Phillip Price, a walk-on tight end a few days ago, is now listed as second string to Chris Hairston at right tackle.  Talk about a thin line.  Price weighs only 265, but the coaches think he can gain weight and become a serviceable lineman “some day”.  If Hairston goes down Clemson is in a world of hurt.

Red-shirt freshman Dewayne Allen is listed at second team tight end ahead of senior Durrell Barry.

Rendrick Taylor is listed as first team FB/TE ahead of Chad Diehl.  This may be a function of Diehl spending some time playing linebacker in short yardage situations.

Former walk-on Terrance Ashe is listed as the starting “Z” receiver, with red-shirt freshman Jaron Brown at second team.  One has to wonder if this is a “matter of time” thing, while Brown gets his feet underneath him during games.  From everything I’ve read Brown is the freshman receiver that has caught the coaches attention the most.

Xavier Dye is listed as the starting “X” wide receiver, with Brandon Clear listed second and Brandon Ford listed third.

On the defensive side of the ball true freshman Malliciah Goodman is listed as Da’Quan Bowers back up at DE.

Besides Goodman there are plenty of freshmen sprinkled throughout the chart on the defensive side of the ball, especially in the defensive backfield.

The other notable, but expected, change is that Marcus Gilchrist is listed as the first team strong safety, with Sadat Chambers now backing him up.
