Making sense of a summer depth chart requires some reading between the lines - especially when, like Clemson's, it includes 14 'ORs' scattered among its 29 listed positions.
Among the unsettled spots are starting assignments at right offensive tackle ( Shaq Anthony or Joe Gore), defensive end ( Corey Crawford or Tavaris Barnes), one defensive tackle spot ( Josh Watson or DeShawn Williams or D.J. Reader), and Sam linebacker/nickel back (T.J. Burrell, Travis Blanks, Korrin Wiggins, Dorian O'Daniel).
New starters include cornerbacks Mackensie Alexander and Cordrea Tankersley, running back D.J. Howard, right guard Kalon Davis, Will linebacker Tony Steward, wide receivers Mike Williams and Charone Peake, and quarterback Cole Stoudt.
The Tigers will begin preseason camp with three first-year freshmen as their backup wide receivers - Kyrin Priester, Artavis Scott and Demarre Kitt.
In addition being designed as the co-starter at right tackle, Shaq Anthony is listed as Isaiah Battle's backup at left tackle.
Eric Mac Lain will back up David Beasley at left guard with Tyrone Crowder playing behind Davis at right guard. Reid Webster is third at both guard spots.
Zac Brooks, C.J. Davidson and Wayne Gallman share the second-team designation at running back.
On the defensive side, Ben Boulware will back Tony Steward at Will linebacker, with B.J. Goodson playing behind Stephone Anthony in the middle. Listed at corner behind Alexander and Tankersley are veterans Garry Peters and Martin Jenkins.
Peake has been tabbed as the Tigers' kickoff return man, while Adam Humphries will handle punts.
