2021 Clemson Positional Grades

Clemson had a tumultuous football season that fell below expectations in 2021. Despite that, they still managed to battle their way to 10 wins behind a defense that remained elite despite a bevy of injuries. Some position groups shined while others struggled. As a 2021 season review, I delved into the stats, PFF grades (based on expert film review), and my own eye-test to evaluate each of the Tigers’ position groups.
