Who should Clemson football fans be expecting to see taken in the first-round of the 2020 NFL Draft tonight? Here’s a look at their chances.

The Clemson football faithful saw three former Tigers selected in the first-round of last year’s NFL Draft.

As we head into the 2020 NFL Draft, the Tigers will again be well-represented.

Here’s a look at three Clemson football players who have a chance to be taken in the first-round of the draft tonight and their percentage chances of doing so.

Isaiah Simmons, S/LB

Isaiah Simmons is the first name on this list and for good reason. Simmons is considered a top-10 by basically ever NFL Insider around the country.

Simmons is the most versatile defensive player in this draft class and has been linked as high as No. 3 overall. The talented linebacker/safety prospect is absolutely going to go in the first-round and, I can promise you this: Clemson football fans won’t have to wait very long to hear Simmons’ name called.

First-Round Chances: 100 percent

A.J. Terrell, CB

Many would’ve questioned A.J. Terrell being considered a first-round pick just a few months ago following the National Championship game. Terrell was bashed by many, but over time NFL Scouts have been really intrigued by the Clemson football CB’s film.

Terrell had a much better showing in the National Championship than many understand from the outside-looking-in and he had a great NFL Combine. There are several NFL organizations who are beginning to show real intrigue in taking him in the first-round.

First-Round Chances: 55 percent

Tee Higgins, WR

Before the NFL Combine, Tee Higgins would’ve been an absolute guarantee to be selected in the first-round. However, he chose not to perform at the Combine and then didn’t have the greatest showing at the Clemson Football Pro Day, either.

That has led to some scouts questioning him. Higgins is teetering on the fence of either being a Round 1 or Round 2 prospect depending on who you talk to.

At this point, we’ve got it split right down the middle.

First-Round Chances: 50 percent

There’s no doubt that all three of these guys have first-round talent and it will be interesting to see what happens Thursday night when the NFL Draft begins.
