Five Clemson Football players who could go pro after 2024

Unlike recent years, there aren't many Clemson Tigers who are likely to leave early for the NFL Draft after the 2024 season, but there are a handful who could if all the pieces fall into place for them.

Jeadyn Lukus

The first point for Lukus is his frame. He is 6’-2” and 200 pounds. If a pro prospect has the skill and the size, then he will be an asset and could find himself drafted high.

The point of caution for Lukus is durability. He hasn’t been healthy through his first two seasons with the Tigers. As a result, he hasn’t proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he definitely has the skill to play in the NFL.

His flashes on the field have proven without a shadow of a doubt that he isn’t a dud – there is something there. The question is whether he can put it all together for a full season.

Most people are thinking about Avieon Terrell and Shelton Lewis going into next season. They were both very good for freshmen. Lukus is a little out of sight and out of mind, and it might be next fall until we get to see him again.

My feeling for the situation is the best-case scenario for Clemson in 2024 is for Lukus to grab one of the two starting cornerback spots and give the Tigers a solid triumvirate at that position. If he does, he might be a candidate to leave early.
