Stephone Anthony

Why be excited: Anthony is a five-star linebacker who is a powerful tackler with a well-built upper body (he benches 315 pounds and squats 455), and has enough athleticism to play any linebacker position, important considering the Tigers' lack of depth there. compares him to former Florida State and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Geno Hayes.

You may not know: Clemson was the first school to offer Anthony a scholarship as a high school junior; his high school wears orange uniforms and uses the Clemson tiger paw on its helmets.

How he fits into the depth chart: Anthony can make an immediate impact on the depth chart, especially after Brandon Maye's departure. He'll fight for early playing time both on defense and special teams.
