Joe Gore

Why be excited: A versatile defensive lineman with excellent wingspan and a long frame that could help him put on weight and play either defensive end or defensive tackle. He creates havoc on the defensive line and has an excellent motor.

You may not know: Gore comes from a very small town that has, in his high school coach's words, "no red light" and was raised by his grandmother. He had 38 scholarship offers.

How he fits into the depth chart: An athletic rusher, could fit in early. He has already enrolled at Clemson and will go through spring practice, giving him an edge in learning Kevin Steele's defensive system.
