I guess this is like all lists---subjective ---where is gardocki and kinard


Re: Charlie Waters should definitely be on here, so should

Jeff Bostic. Must of been of youngsters putting this list together. If you are going to put MD Perry #2, a case could be made for Jim Stuckey.

I think for the most part, that is a good list. However, I would put Charlie Waters and Jeff Bostic on it. Waters was an All Pro and according to Wikipedia, Bostic was named one of the 70 greatest Redskins of all time.

I might bump Terry Allen (short career b/c of knee) and William Perry (great player, but greater media sensation) for those two guys.


Terry Allen lead the league in TD's one year....How about

bumping the guy who didn't play 10 games at Clemson, he doesn't belong with Clemson greats, he's an asterisk.


Think I'll keep an eye on Ellington too.***

Kind of disappointing our players haven't had more success

in the NFL. You could make a better list of NFL players from Miami's 2001 roster alone than the entire history of our program.

Not hard to understand with the 20 yr. lapse in football from Hatfield thru Bowden .


tells you something about the hole we've had to dig out of


Posted: Jul 14, 2014 12:25 PM
 

Bowden started getting us out of it, and now Dabo has pretty much gotten us out. I suspect you'll see a few of the more recent Clemson players on that list soon.


Yep, agree with both of you. When looking at this list of

players, almost all of them played within a ~10yr span and were brought in by Pell and Ford.

Great list. Definitely a little surprised to not see Kinard on there. In ten years, let's hope we can add 4 or 5 new names!

Should be titled "Since 1980". Charlie Waters would be a great choice, as would be Fred Cone who is merely in the Packers Hall of Fame (I think). What about Jerry Butler?

Hard to argue with any of these though.


Did Brian Dawkins have a better NFL than NCAA

career?

He was likely the best player on his Clemson D, but I don't remember him being a man child that was talked about by NCAA fans from coast to coast.

I think that NFL fans talked about Dawkins from coast to coast.

No Whitehurst?


MD Perry was AFC Defensive Player of the Year one year


Posted: Jul 14, 2014 2:28 PM
 

and made a bunch of Pro Bowls too...hard to not put him second on this list behind Dawk, who had the best NFL career of any Tiger to date. Jeff Bryant, to me, remains the most underrated Tiger great of all time. 4 year starter at Clemson, played every DL position, lived in the backfield, saved the NC season with the lateral recovery and merely played 12 years as a starter for Seattle. Jeff Bostic and Charlie Waters should definitely be on this list....Dexter McLeon had a good NFL career as well. Butler and Kinard had injury shortened NFL careers. Terry Allen was a heck of an NFL back when healthy too. This list will get a lot tougher to fill in years to come with what Dabo is running through the program talentwise. Dawk was a heck of a player on some lean Clemson teams. He would knock your head off and got bigger and stronger in the NFL. He's a first ballot HOF as far as I'm concerned.


Dawkins on lean teams?***

Levon Kirkland, gotta be #2

Also,
while Dawkins might be the greatest NFL player from
Clemson. As crazy as this might seem, he probably wasn't
the best DB ever at Clemson. Or safety for that matter.

Great, great career..but didn't really develop under
Tommy West, IMO.

I believe MY list would go as...

(NFL/Clemson)
#1- Brain Dawkins
#2-Levon Kirkland
#3-Michael Dean Perry
#4-Donnell Wolford
#5-Jeff Bostic
#6-Chester McGlocton
#7-Ed McDaniel
#8-Terry Allen
#9-Dwight Clark
#10- Frig Perry :)

#21


Where's Donnell? Or Bennie? Or Jeff Bostic? Or Ed

McDaniel?
