I know this isn’t book news, but I live only about 30 miles from Clemson, SC, so this is news in this area.

The first round of the NFL draft started Thursday night in Nashville, TN.

Three Clemson football players were selected in the first round for the first time in history. 

  • Clelin Ferrell was drafted 4th overall by the Oakland Raiders.
  • Christian Wilkins was drafted 13th by the Miami Dolphins.
  • Dexter Lawrence was drafted by the New York Giants at No. 17.
