3. Elite Player Development & Talent Analysis
A vastly underrated area of Dabo Swinney’s skillset is his ability to analyze talent and develop players.
How many times have we seen Clemson football take a 3-star guy (or lower) over a 4 or 5-star just for that 3-star guy to explode into a great player? Examples include guys like Hunter Renfrow, Vic Beasley, Adam Humphries, Grady Jarrett, just to name a few.
Dabo does a great job recognizing talent and pinpointing areas that players need improve.
Because of that, he- along with his staff- is able to develop talented athletes that turn into starters and big-time contributors before it’s all said and done.
