1. Joseph Ngata

Leading off our list is none other than sophomore Joseph Ngata.

Ngata is the perfect body type to take over playing that boundary position and that’s what we think will happen before it’s all said and done.

Ngata- 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds- has the ability to beat defensive backs because of his pure size and that’s going to be an extreme asset for the Tigers this season.

Ngata has to have a successful season and it’s clear that the rest of the Clemson football program will be relying upon him to get the job done at the boundary position.

Next. All eyes will be on Tyler Grisham moving forward. dark
