    The 2012 Clemson Tigers will have a totally different look than the 2011 model, at on offense. Head coach Dabo Swinney, feeling the fire beneeth him, has brought in offesive phenom Chad Morris to take over the duties at OC. Morris' offense is a fast paced spread attack that stretches the field horizontally and vertically, with alot of motions, reverses and QB runs.

    [​IMG]The Tiger's offense will be led by (RS) sophomore Tajh Boyd who has put in the needed extra time this offseason to learn the new system. Boyd brings alot of intangibles to the table that should fit well in the scheme. He should have no problem running the ball several times a game with his stoudt frame, 6-1 225, and he has the speed to outrun most DE and LB's as well. Boyd does need to work on his footwork and accuracy as much as possible. Consistenly hitting targets down field could be his one weak spot this coming season.

    Clemson's rushing attack will come at teams from all directions this season. The new offense encorporates multiple sweeps, motions, reverses, QB options, and other mis-direction plays. It will be a work in progress to start the year, as there will be many growing pains. Hopefully by midseason, you will see orange in the endzone early and often. Freshman Mike Bellamy has track speed and should be deadly if given some space to run. He isn't a big back at all, but with speed, sometimes size doesn't matter.

    Catching the ball from Tajh Boyd, Clemson's WR core is very young, very talented which will hopefully translate into points on the field. The young core is led by true feshman Sammy Watkins. DeAndre Hokins and Jaron Brown will be the focal points starting the year b/c they have the most experience and are game ready, but do not be surprised to see flashes of brilliance from the likes of Sammy Watkins and Charone Peake.

    Linebackers :5stars: Tony Steward and :5stars: Stephone Anthony were the highlights on the recruiting trail this offseason for the Tigers. Landing two of the nation's top five linebackers will add talent, depth, and big hits for years to come. However, the defense is currently led by SR Brandon Thompson at DT. He will be the anchor for a strong line that looks to fill the shoes of DaQuan Bowers, which may prove tough to do.
