The Clemson football Dream Team Defense of the Dabo Swinney era

The Clemson football program has seen its fair share of dominant defenses and talented defensive players in the Dabo Swinney era.

With Venables as the Defensive Coordinator, Clemson football has had one of the top defenses in the country year-in and year-out. And that really can’t be argued.
