Clemson's "D" shows out on Pro Day, especially DeShawn Williams

Thursday was a day for Clemson to show off its indoor practice facility and ability to turn out NFL-caliber players as head coaches, general managers and scouts from all the NFL teams gathered to watch Clemson’s draft-eligible players work out. Some players showed out more than others.


Clemson the center of NFL universe as head coaches and scouts pack Pro Day
Clemson held its Pro Day Thursday morning in the indoor practice facility and in attendance were 72 total pro scouts – 69 NFL, and three CFL – 24 NFL coaches – including Rex Ryan (Buffalo Bills), Bill Belichick (New England Patriots) and Chip Kelly (Philadelphia Eagles) – and three general managers, representing all 32 NFL teams.

Hyatt, Fruhmorgen earning praise for their "fight" plus defensive nuggets
The youngsters are getting a little chippy, and Dabo Swinney is okay with that. The Clemson football team went through practice number two of the spring Wednesday afternoon, and it didn’t take long for the news to leak out that freshman tackle Mitch Hyatt got into a scrum of sorts with one of the defensive players. Seeing his good friend involved in a tussle, freshman tackle Jake Fruhmorgen swooped in to help out his roommate, earning a loud cheer and whoops from the veteran offensive linemen.
