How Mark Fields became a key part of Clemson’s defense

When Clemson cornerback Marcus Edmond went down with a foot injury this past Saturday against Auburn, there was no panic on Clemson’s sideline.

That’s because the Tigers have developed great depth at cornerback, and the emergence of Mark Fields is a big part of that.

Fields played 41 snaps against Auburn, the third most out of the cornerbacks, and had a tackle for loss and a pass breakup. He helped Clemson’s defense hold Auburn to 79 passing yards.

Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said Fields, a junior, has made great strides from when he first arrived at Clemson.
