The 2020 Clemson football team is set to begin spring practice in just a couple of weeks. Here’s our positional analysis for the tight end spot.
The 2020 Clemson football team will begin spring practice in just a couple of weeks.
As we continue to breakdown the Clemson football team by position before spring practice starts, here’s a look at our pre-spring analysis and depth chart projection for tight end.
Projected Depth Chart:
Starter Braden Galloway
Expect a few ‘or’ situations to be listed on the depth chart at tight end as the coaches sort through exactly how they’re going to use all of these guys.
I expect that Galloway will be listed as a starter, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see the coaches continue to give a nod to Chalk, who will be the technical returning starter. Galloway will get the majority of the snaps at the position, but Chalk will likely play more in the H-back role that we saw Garrett Williams play a couple of years ago.
As a matter of fact, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Clemson football have two separate positions on the depth chart to include Chalk’s blocking ability and Galloway’s receiving skills both as starters on the depth chart.
Jaelyn Lay and Davis Allen will both compete for second-string snaps and it should be expected that the two sophomores take steps forward after being used a fair amount during the 2019 season.
Overall, this is a deep tight end room with plenty of talent to develop and give Clemson its first complete look at the position in quite some time.
