Turner won’t mentally bust, and that’s more important in a safety than being a sure tackler or plus athlete. Contrary to the unbalanced sets mentioned above, in single deep calls against 10 or 11 personnel sets in a 2x2 alignment, it is the free safety who drops down to cover the weak/boundary side slot while the strong safety has deep responsibility. Well, maybe. Before the advent of the spread made two deep safeties commonplace, the free safety was just about always your deepest defender; a speedy headhunter roaming the back end while your strong safety flew the alley and had more run gap responsibilities. The five-time defending ACC champs check as the No. 1 team in the nation in ESPN's FPI for 2020, with Clemson favored in every game over the course of the regular season. We'll never pass along your email address to spammers, scammers, or the like. He or Phillips are in line for a heavy workload this year in what is effectively an audition to take Turner’s place next year — assuming Turner doesn’t come back for a 6th year — and his development is where we will most likely find the answer to any lingering question marks on the safety unit throughout the season. 27 and Clemson at No. Late October into mid-November may be the most pivotal stretch, as the Hurricanes face North Carolina, Virginia, Florida State and Virginia Tech in succession. The Yellow Jackets very likely plays three Top 20 teams including No. After having a top-three schedule in 2015 and 2016, Bama’s schedule hasn’t even been ranked inside the top-45 the past two seasons. I figure a little more than half of this chart is entrenched while the rest will continue to develop. Louisville only has a 6.1% chance of escaping Clemson with a victory opposed to a 34.6% chance of walking away from South Bend on a triumphant note. #1 Clemson Travels to Atlanta to Face Georgia Tech, Clemson Basketball: 2014 Scholarship Roster, Ryan provided the staff’s expectations in another article, Trevor Lawrence is a huge favorite for the Heisman, Georgia Tech Vs.

Clemson is again the toughest projected opponent for the Wolfpack, with NC State's chances of knocking off the Tigers checking in at 1.1 percent. The caveat is that the recruiting average is skewed by zero-star recruit Turner, who is far and away the leader in the safety room with a bevy of experience and clutch plays to his name, despite being an athletic mismatch most offenses will aim to exploit whenever possible. That wart will remain a weakness with the safety room possessing the least amount of recruited talent of all position groups on the roster based on 24/7 Sports recruiting metrics. If Vegas ever published the power rankings it uses to set its lines, they would likely look quite a lot like FPI. 13 in Fantasy Draft rankings, Clemson Football: Balance will be the theme for the 2019 offense, Clemson Football: Freshman Tyler Davis won’t back down in competition, Belgium vs. Scotland: Euro 2020 Qualifying Odds, Live Stream, TV Info, Clemson Football: Several Tigers listed in top CFB Fantasy Draft rankings, Clemson Football: Bama listed as 2018 National Champion in NCAA record book, Clemson Football: Saturday Down South ranks Tigers No. The Hurricanes don't get a Power 5 opponent until traveling to face a Michigan State team that is under the direction of first-year head coach Mel Tucker in Week 4.

Strength of Schedule is always a measurement brought up when analysts begin making cases for CFB Playoff teams. Strength of Record: Reflects chance that an average Top 25 team would have team's record or better, given the schedule. Though ‘Strength of Schedule’ isn’t always the best metric, it certainly can be a helpful tool that includes several different factors all at once to give us a single ranking. In the traditional sense, the strong safety is the hybrid linebacker who most often rotates down into the box when eight are needed in it. The rundown: As far as difficulty is concerned, Georgia Tech's schedule serves as quite the outlier in the ACC. After that. He is the safety who lines up on tight ends and splits out against unbalanced wideout sets, while the free safety is more deep coverage-based. The ultimate goal of FPI is not to rank teams 1 through 128; rather, it is to correctly predict games and season outcomes. The Hokies are ramping up for an ACC Coastal Run with many teams on their schedule breaking into new regimes or experiencing major roster turnover. Notice there’s no 24/7 rating next to his name because Turner was not exactly considered a prospect by recruiting services.
