CLEMSON EXPECTS TO BE REPRESENTED WELL AGAIN IN 1ST ROUND OF NFL DRAFT
- 2020-04-24 10:43:16
Happy Draft Day! I expect Simmons to land with the Panthers at No.7, but Kiper and McShay have him going No.4 to the Giants, which would be their second straight year picking a Tiger in the first round (Dex Lawrence). If that happens, Simmons would be tied with 3 others for the highest pick in Clemson history (Ferrell, Watkins, Adams). Higgins will likely go late in the first round--probably the 4th receiver taken. Some have Terrell going first round and some have him going second. The Tigers could therefore match last year's total with 3 more first-round picks tonight, which would place them at No.15 all-time, one pick behind UGA, who I'm expecting to have one first-round pick tonight. The Tigers will probably add 3-4 more next year, which would likely bump them up to No.13 behind LSU!
