Tankersley named to 2016 All-American team

by - Assoc. Editor -

Pro Football Focus released their annual All-American team on Tuesday and Clemson cornerback Cordrea Tankersley was listed as a first-team selection.

"Tankersley’s coverage numbers this year are pretty eye opening, allowing a catch on 44.6 percent of the passes thrown into his coverage, giving up just 259 yards and one touchdown over the year, while picking off three passes and breaking up seven more," Pro Football Focus said. "All that adds up to an NFL passer rating of 42.2 on throws into his coverage."

He has 43 tackles including six for loss, three interceptions, and ten pass deflections in 2016.
