needed another year at Clemson. Swinney believes unless you are a 1st rounder it's not worth giving up your senior year and Hopkins received "as high as second round grade from the NFL". Swinney said it was not a matter of whether he thinks Hopkins can be successful in the NFL.

"I personally think he will not be just a good pro but a great pro," said Swinney. "I think he has the potential to play a long time."

Swinney said it will be tough for Hopkins to be a first round pick this year, but he would take him in the first round if he could.

"I know I am biased but I am taking Nuk Hopkins because of the things I know about him," said Swinney.
