4. Clemson: Repeating isn't easy to do and the Tigers will have to do so without the best quarterback in program history as Deshaun Watson is now in the NFL. They’ve also lost RB Wayne Gallman, who ran for more than 1,100 yards and 17 touchdowns, as well as WR Mike Williams, who had 98 catches for 1,361 yards and 11 touchdowns. On the other side of the ball, LB Ben Boulware is gone after recording 131 tackles last season, but junior Kendall Joseph slides into the middle after notching 124 tackles last season, and the secondary has plenty of experience. The schedule sets up well, which means the Tigers will at least have a shot at getting back to the playoffs.
