The Clemson football program will have several players selected in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft. Here’s our early breakdown of the class.
The Clemson football program will see several Tigers taken in the 2020 NFL Draft later this spring.
Though we won’t see three Clemson football players taken in the first round as we did in 2019, there will still be plenty of action for Tiger fans looking to see where their favorite players land.
Here’s our early breakdown for the Clemson football players in the 2020 NFL Draft and where we can expect to see them selected.
- LB/S Isaiah Simmons (consensus top-10)
- WR Tee Higgins (late first-rounder)
- CB A.J. Terrell (2-3 rounder)
These are the three to watch in the early rounds. Isaiah Simmons is a consensus top-10 pick and could very well go inside the top-5, depending on needs. Tee Higgins is likely to be a late-first round pick, but he could move himself up or down depending on the NFL Combine later this spring. I don’t expect him to fall much lower than early second round, though.
A.J. Terrell is a guy that’s likely to go fairly early in the second round, but we could see drop depending on his stock down the stretch.
- OG John Simpson (3-4 rounder)
- S K’Von Wallace (3-6 rounder)
- OT Tremayne Anchrum (6-7 rounder)
- OL Sean Pollard (6-7 rounder)
These four Clemson football players are all in position to be drafted, but there’s certainly questions as to where they’ll go.
John Simpson will undoubtedly be drafted, but he could go as high as a late-second round pick or end up in the later rounds. The same can be said about K’Von Wallace, who is trending upwards currently at the safety position.
Both Tremayne Anchrum and Sean Pollard will have a chance to get drafted in the later rounds, but that will depend on interviews and performances in workouts.
Undrafted Free Agents:
These last four guys aren’t likely to be drafted, but I do think they’ll get a shot somewhere. You’re likely to see them sign deals shortly after the NFL Draft and attempt to make a splash during training camp.
We’ll break this draft class down more in-depth as we get closer to the event, but this is a starting point for what to expect.
