NCAA Football: Clemson at Boston College Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

The College Football Playoffs are upon us. We’ve got Notre Dame Vs. Clemson. If you are looking for it on TV, you can find it on ESPN at 4:00PM EST. Here are some names to keep an eye on.

Edge, Clelin Ferrell, Clemson (#93)

Ferrell is a disciplined, 3 down edge guy. Clelin combines his length, speed and technique to rein hell down on o-linemen.

Edge, Austin Bryant, Clemson (#7)

Austin Bryant looks the part of an elite edge rush, but then once the ball is snapped, he looks anything but. He needs to grow in every aspect of the position.

Edge, Julian Okwara, Notre Dame (#42)

Okwara has quietly had an extremely disruptive year for Notre Dame. While sacks might be low (7) he 7th the league in QB pressures (58). In most cases, this is more of a telling stat for next level production.

OT, Mitch Hyatt, Clemson (#75)

Physically Hyatt is an amazing tackle prospect. Technically, he has improved. There is still some rawness, but he has matured a lot this year and has only given up 11 pressures all year.

C/G, Sam Mustipher, Notre Dame (#53)

Mustipher has had a pretty solid year pass blocking for Ian Book. He has only given up 11 pressures all season.

G, Alex Bars, Notre Dame (#71)

Bars was part of a very good offensive line unit. Alex has a thick base and strong frame that are great at sealing off big running lanes. He pulls well, but might not have the athletic ability to make it in an outside zone scheme like ours.

WR, Hunter Renfrow, Clemson (#13)

Renfrow won’t by winning any measurables competitions, but what he brings to the table is an outstanding ability to find space and catch the ball. This guy has New England written all over him.

WR, Miles Boykin, Notre Dame (#81)

Boykin is a big bodied receiver that uses his frame well to shield defenders. He has been highly effective at moving the sticks for Notre dame.

RB, Tavien Feaster, Clemson (#28)

Feaster is a North South runner that packs a punch. It’s hard to bring Tavien down behind the LOS.

CB, Julian Love, Notre Dame (#27)

Love has the tools to do well in man coverage, but needs to be a little quick with his recognition and reaction. This leads to some separation. He does have the quickness to make up for it though.

LB, Kendall Joseph, Clemson (#33)

Unlike Lamar, Kendall is a quick, smooth mover. He has sideline to sideline range. Joseph is also a bit of a terror when blitzing the passer.

LB,Tre Lamar, Clemson (#57)

Lamar is very much an old school LBer. He is physically imposing against the run and filling gaps. A bit of a liability in coverage.

LB, Te’Von Coney, Notre Dame (#4)

Coney has been a beast this year against the run. He is one of the best tacklers coming out this year. He has been equally as good in coverage.

LB, Drue Tranquill, Notre Dame (#23)

While not as efficient against the run as his counterpart Coney, he is very good in coverage. He is very quick and is able to hang with slot guys and backs coming out of the backfield.
