Since 2010, Deandre Hopkins’ freshman year, Clemson has had one future NFL player after another at wide receiver.
Starting in 2013, Hopkins, Sammy Watkins (2014), Martavis Bryant (2014), Charone Peake (2016), Mike Williams (2017), Deon Cain (2018), Ray-Ray McCloud (2018) and Hunter Renfrow (2019) were all drafted by NFL teams. Hopkins (No. 27 overall), Watkins (No. 4 overall) and Williams (No. 7 overall) were all picked in the first round.
Hopkins just earned his third consecutive All-Pro status with the Houston Texans, while Watkins will play for the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday.
