Clemson OL ‘Totally Different Unit’ Compared to Season Ago

Former Clemson OL Eric Mac Lain has seen a noticeable difference with the Tigers’ offense throughout fall camp.

And that difference all starts up front with the offensive line, as the current ACCN analyst said on a recent episode of The Gramlich and Mac Lain Podcast.

“I’m just excited about the growth,” Mac Lain said. “They moved some guys around, they’re putting folks in different positions. They’re feeling really good about the first five they run out there, and they just look like a totally different unit.”

Mac Lain sees a big difference compared to what he saw in camp a season ago, especially when it comes to protecting starting QB DJ Uiagalelei.

I mean, a year ago, remember, it’s still against this defensive line, and last year, they just couldn’t handle it. It was every other play, DJ’s getting hit. They can’t run the ball, can’t do anything, and it’s just like, man, this is gonna be tough.”

Last season Clemson’s defensive front was dominating its offensive line in practice, but this year, those starting five are more than holding their own against what is supposed to be arguably the best front four in the country.

“This year, I see them going against those same guys, and again, some folks moved around, a couple new faces, and they’re winning reps. It’s much more 50/50.”
