Syracuse coach Dino Babers’ thoughts on Clemson D-line: “OMG”

Syracuse coach Dino Babers is a man well-versed in the language spoken by today’s milennials, and he borrowed a phrase from them to describe Clemson’s defensive line.

Who can argue with that description. In fact, Chris Trapasso of CBS Sports have projected two (defensive end Austin Bryant and defensive tackle Christian Wilkins) of the Tigers starters on his first list of possible first round candidates for the 2018 NFL Draft. Bryant is the ideal pass-rusher, who has recorded 5 sacks and 11 tackles for loss on the season. Wilkins is a perfect run-stuffing defender, who has combined with the other Clemson (defensive tackle Clelin Ferrell and Dexter Lawrence) defensive front starters to record 6 sacks and 7 tackles for loss on the year. Currently, the Tigers are ranked third in the nation with 22 sacks.

Clemson travels to Syracuse on October 13, with kickoff scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
