CBSSports.com released their latest 2017 NFL Mock Draft, and two Clemson offensive players were projected in the first ten overall picks of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Clemson star wide receiver Mike Williams was projected to be taken at #8 overall pick by the Tennessee Titans and the first wide receiver taken.

"The three-headed monster of Marcus Mariota, DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry would be that much more effective with a true speed threat challenging the safeties cheating toward the line of scrimmage," CBSSports.com. "The 6-foot-3, 220 pound Williams offers a similar combination of agility, speed and aggression at the catch point as former Clemson stars Sammy Watkins and DeAndre Hopkins."

Williams has 79 catches for 1114 yards and 10 touchdowns this season. For his career, he has 158 catches for 2480 yards and 20 scores.

Clemson junior quarterback Deshaun Watson was projected #9 overall to the Arizona Cardinals and the second signal-caller on the list behind Mitch Trubisky.

"Poor performances and injury concerns for Carson Palmer has rekindled questions about the Cardinals' long-term plans at the position," CBSSports.com said. "Watson is not the polished pocket passer that Bruce Arians has preferred in the past but his mobility could be a perfect complement to young star running back David Johnson."

Watson completed 26-of-32 passes for 347 yards and six touchdowns in Clemson’s 56-7 win over rival South Carolina. He has passed for 3626 yards with 34 touchdowns and 14 interceptions this season. For his career, he has passed for 9196 yards with 93 touchdowns and 29 interceptions.
