The Clemson football career for Derion Kendrick will be looked at as basically a failed experiment under the assessment of Tiger fans.

Though Kendrick showed bright spots and had moments where he looked like one of the best cornerbacks in the ACC, he also was beaten on many occasions and simply couldn’t come up with the play when Clemson needed it most.
