Who is starting who isn't?

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

No real juggling again by the Eagles, let's take a look at who should be starting on Saturday.

LT

74 Dave Bowen 6-7 289 Sr.
73 Sam Schmal 6-6 294 R-Fr.

LG

77 Harris Williams 6-3 296 Sr.
54 Joel Rich 6-3 282 So.

C

77 Jon Baker 6-3 290 So.
50 Frank Taylor 6-3 289 Jr.

RG

75 Chris Lindstrom 6-4 260 Fr.
69 Austin Stevens 6-3 270 R- Fr.

RT

72 Jim Cashman 6-7 302 Jr.
58 James Hendren 6-7 293 R-Fr.

This group is going to have yeoman's work against a Clemson front seven that are 39th in the country with 13 sacks.

Y Back
81 Louie Addazio 6-3 252 Sr.
89 Tommy Sweeney 6-5 246 R-Fr.
87 Austin Chapman 6-3 232 So.
84 Jake Burt 6-5 230 Fr.

This group again will not be asked to be receivers unless there is a huge tide change in BC philosophy. They are going to be needed in run support.

QB

Jeff Smith 6-1 182 Fr.
or 16 Troy Flutie 6-0 182 R-Fr.

This will be clarified later this week, as Addazio said he will name a starter that he plans on sticking with. Not sure who that is going to be, but if I could bet money, I would put it on Jeff Smith.

RB

35 Tyler Rouse 5-8 194 Jr. or
7 Marcus Outlow 5-10 203 So.
23 Myles Willis 5-9 194 Jr.

36 Bobby Wolford 6-2 248 Sr.
38 Richard Wilson 5-10 224 R-Fr.

Jordan Gowins isn't on here, which doesn't mean much as he wasn't last week either. The way he ran the ball on Saturday, I would expect him to get more carries.

WR1

18 Thadd Smith 5-9 175 So. 
83 Charlie Callinan 6-4 220 So. or
84 Elijah Robinson 6-2 185 Fr.

WR2

6 Sherman Alston 5-6 163 So. 
80 Drew Barksdale 5-11 195 So.
37 Michael Walker 6-0 195 Fr.

WR3
26 David Dudeck 5-11 194 Sr.
10 Bobby Swigert 6-0 199 Sr.

Clemson has the 29th ranked pass defense in the country, and BC can't throw the ball. Yeahhhh...

DE

8 Harold Landry 6-3 245 So. or
45 Mehdi Abdesmad 6-7 286 Sr. 
Zach Allen 6-5 265 Fr.

T

97 Truman Gutapfel 6-3 281 Jr.
96 Ray Smith 6-1 264 Fr. or
94 Noa Merritt 6-0 268 So.

N

90 Connor Wujciak 6-3 304 Sr.
99 Evan Kelly 6-1 285 Gr.

DE

93 Kevin Kavalec 6-2 256 So or
45 Mehdi Abdesmad 6-7 286 Sr. 
87 Malachi Moore 6-4 274 Jr. or
11 Wyatt Ray 6-3 230 Fr.

Clemson has the 42nd ranked rushing attack in the country, averaging almost 200 yards per game. This should be a really good test for the Eagles.

SLB

28 Matt Milano 6-1 218 Jr.
49 Kevin Bletzer 6-2 217 R-Fr.
43 Sherriff Grice 6-1 201 Fr.

MLB

52 Steven Daniels 6-0 257 Sr.
13 Connor Strachan 6-2 230 So.

WLB

44 Ty Schwab 6-1 222 So.
30 Mike Strizak 6-2 239

Again, the pass rush is going to be a challenge; Clemson has only allowed 7 sacks the entire season.

LC
5 Kamrin Moore 5-11 192 So.
29 Atem Ntantang 5-11 193 So.
15 Taj-Amir Torres 5-10 170 Fr.

SS 
John Johnson 6-0 198 Jr.
41 William Harris 6-2 193 So.

FS 
27 Justin Simmons 6-3 198 Sr.
17 Christian Lezzer 6-0 215 So.

RC 
20 Isaac Yiadom 6-1 184 So.
14 Gabriel McClary 6-3 204 So.
21 Lukas Denis 5-11 170

Clemson can move the ball through the air, but to this point haven't put up elite numbers. They are in the middle of the pack in terms of throwing the ball, ranked 59th in the country.

PK 
98 Mike Knoll  6-0 207 So.
99 Colton Lichtenberg 5-10 175 Fr.

KO

99 Colton Lichtenberg 5-10 175 Fr.
42 Alex Howell 6-5 214 Sr.


53 Leonard Skubal 5-10 193 Jr.
46 Jimmy Martin 5-11 220 Fr.

H
10 Bobby Swigert 6-0 199 Sr.

PR 
6 Sherman Alston 5-6 163 So.
85 Thadd Smith 5-9 175 So.

KR
23 Myles Willis 5-9 194 Jr
37 Michael Walker 6-0 195 Fr.

Alex Howell is off of kick offs, and Colton Lichtenberg is now the back up kicker. Mike Knoll is back; let's see if he can improve on the end of 2014 when he really struggled.
