2018 Clemson Tigers prospect primer

Below are notable Clemson Tigers players eligible for the 2018 NFL Draft.  The Clemson program is going to face an uphill and unlikely battle to defender their National Championship in 2017 but are still stocked full of NFL Draft prospects.

Offense

Wide Receiver Deon Cain – 6010, 210 – Junior

Cain was one of the most dynamic receivers in the country in 2016, averaging nearly 20 yards per reception in a limited role in the offense. Without Mike Williams to absorb a majority of the targets, Cain will be given the opportunity to showcase a more versatile skill set this season.

Offensive Tackle Mitch Hyatt – 6050, 295 – Junior

Is regarded by some as one of the better offensive tackle prospects in the country entering the season. Hyatt has started 29 out of a possible 30 games for the Tigers to this point in his career and figures to be an essential fixture on the line as the offense acclimates a new starting Quarterback this season.

Defense

Defensive End Clelin Ferrell – 6050, 265 – Redshirt Sophomore

A superb athlete; Ferrell is a pretty special athlete. He really came into his own in 2016 and is poised for a monster season in 2017. His movement skills are rare for a player of his stature. Another year of experience should allow him to continue to learn how to optimize his traits.

Defensive Tackle Christian Wilkins – 6040, 310 – Junior

Wilkins played out of position at times for the Tigers in 2016; moving up and down the line of scrimmage and spending some time at Defensive End. It appears as though he’ll be playing inside with more frequency in 2017; which should result in his explosive power being featured more predominantly and allowing him to work closer to the football for more splash plays.
