Deadline to enter the NFL Draft has passed

Yesterday was the deadline to enter the NFL Draft. Anyone who hasn't entered by now will not be eligible.

This means Phil Mafah and Jake Briningstool are still on the Clemson Football roster for 2024 and won't be going pro yet.

It is worth noting that players can still declare to enter the supplemental draft, but that would be a longshot.

PFF recognizes Clemson Football defensive players

PFF has summarized some of their year-end ratings and a few Clemson players have ranked high on their lists.

Two defensive tackles ranked in their Top 10. Tyler Davis is not a surprise. He is one of the most experienced and well-coached tackles in football.

It’s the other name that gives us reason to be excited.

Considering Peter Woods wasn’t even a starter this season, it is impressive that he graded out this well as a true freshman.

Jeremiah Trotter was recognized as one of the best linebackers.
