  • Years at Clemson: 2015-2018
  • NFL Draft: 2019 – First Round – Oakland Raiders
  • Eligibility Remaining: One season

Despite being at Clemson for four years, Clelin Ferrell still had one more year of eligibility after being forced to redshirt his freshman year due to a broken hand.

His last three seasons in a Clemson uniform were absolutely amazing.

He ended his Clemson football career with some staggering numbers.

  • Sacks: 27
  • Tackles for Loss: 50.5
  • Tackles: 166
  • Forced Fumbles: 3

As we all know, Clelin could have left after his RS sophomore year but instead elected to come back and join Christian Wilkins, Austin Bryant, and Dexter Lawrence for one more shot at a second national title. The foursome is known as the “Power Rangers” led what is the best defense in college football history.

Clelin Ferrell left Clemson with two national titles, a two-time All-American selection, a Consensus All-American, Hendricks Award winner, and a Clemson degree. He accomplished all of this and still had one year of eligibility remaining.
