Just bot take your mind off recruiting!
I recently played golf with former TE Andy Boyd and we got to talking about current players and recently departed seniors.
Boyd, who still works and works out with JC told me that JC was vastly underused in our system. He didn't say this in a negative manner, told me that he was just that good as a blocking TE but that NFL teams are going to love him as an Hback type player in the right system (i know not all teams use an hback). He says that if he played Hback for USC then he would been better than dimarco and dimarco is doing ok for himself...
Point of my post is that there are high expectations for JC in the NFL and although he won't go high in the draft at all, he is going to be a solid, consistent player in the league.not two bad for a 2 star scrub we thought would never see the field,
PS he said he would have loved to play on a team with Clowney's and described "The Hit" from the outback bowl...
This has little to do with your post other than to say this about Andy Boyd: that boy would put a lickin' on you in High School. I saw him play many times when I lived on Concord and he played both ways. One game I was at he broke a dudes jaw and helmet and sent him to the hospital, also knocked out a tooth or two.

Thanks for sharing the inside info, Carolinainsider.
*see what i did there?
Thanks for the info and getting Boyd's thoughts. What great gamecocks both of those guys are. I don't agree though that Justice was underutilized. He just doesn't seem anywhere near shifty enough and quick enough to be an outstanding H-back type player. I think you have to look at how much depth we have at running back now and had to get those guys as involved as we could. Throw in Connor's running ability and we needed him as a blocking TE, which he was.
Hope he makes millions in the NFL and has a very long career
it seemed to me we used the te less and less in the last part of the season. i was rewatching the clemson game and bowl game vs michigan and it looked like te routes and te were wide open a good bit. we hardly used busta or adams. might have been just me, because we seemed to use them a lot at first of the season.
not knocking JC...he made tons of plays and a couple great catches but i cant agree with saying he wasnt targeted late. he had two long gainers go right thru his hands vs clem ( it was clem or mich as they were by Dylan)---maybe that wasnt enough but he had some thrown his way
Can we get a scorecard for proof?
Justice has a huge frame and a great blocker will be a solid NFL TE

Making bets and cashing checks
I suspect ALL of our WR's and some of our RB's would all argue they weren't used enough. Other than Lattimore, who do we think got the ball enough on offense last year?
Let's look at it this way: in the two games we lost, how could the TE have helped us? Justice made a few big plays in the LSU game; I agree maybe we should have gone to him more in the first half. So Boyd is probably right for that game. The UF game? Unless Justice was returning kicks I don't know how much more TE targets would have helped.
It says a lot about our program that Spurrier has got us to the point where we are second guessing the offense after going 22-4. Good luck to Justice and thanks for 4 great years!
More importantly, how's Justice fixed for salt tablets these days?:)
I think, at least in the CU game, it has a lot to do with Dylan being more willing and able to get the ball downfield. Shaw loves the dump offs, and I think that is primarily because he likes the safer options in the passing game. Which is exactly why I prefer Dylan as a passer, he takes the chances and throws to a spot. You have to do that to excel as a passer, IMO.
