Can we take a moment to appreciate the Clemson defensive linemen in the 2019 NFL Draft? It seems like as we’ve gotten closer to the start of the draft we’ve forgotten that Clemson could have three players from one position group taken in the first round. Without looking through every single college and every single draft, it seems so extraordinary to never happen at all. Those three Clemson players would be defensive tackles Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence and defensive end Clelin Ferrell. Wilkins is the best of the bunch. He’s an athletic interior player who had 40.5 tackles for loss and 16 sacks for Clemson in four seasons. If the draft wasn’t so loaded at defensive tackle, Wilkins would be a top-10 lock.
