Fans won’t see Connor Shaw or Jadeveon Clowney, but here are five players to keep an eye on Saturday afternoon:
The 5-foot-9, 215-pound sophomore tailback was locked in a neck-and-neck battle with Brandon Wilds the first two weeks of spring practice, but Davis is beginning to stand out.
The redshirt freshman will be the starting center on an otherwise experienced offensive line. Coaches have praised Waldrop’s work ethic and ability as he transitions from guard.
The 6-foot-8, 338-pound junior has been asking to face off against defensive end Jadeveon Clowney in order to improve after starting nine games at left tackle last season.
The sophomore is the favorite to win the starting middle linebacker job. He has been lauded this spring by coach Kirk Botkin for his intelligence and willingness to be a vocal leader.
The 6-foot, 185-pound senior has made several nice plays throughout spring practice. He struggled last year due to focus issues, not ability, secondary coach Grady Brown said.
