The Dodd Report: Former Tiger gearing up for Combine and NFL Draft

Life has been a bit of blur for former Clemson defensive end Kevin Dodd since the National Championship Game in Glendale in early January, but the process is beginning to slow down as he puts the final touches on his game plan for the NFL Scouting Combine.

I agree that our players are in good hands. But I would have loved to see Dodd back one more season. But I wish him well and will be pulling for him.
GO TIGERS !!!

100% agree, it would have been really special to have had both of those DEs back for their final year wearing a Clemson uniform. I truly believe that their talent and ability would have reached another level with another year under coach Hobby's ability to teach the DE position.

Hey, his bio says he has graduated and has four letters. He has done everything that has been asked of him and the time is right for him to go to the next level. I for one hope nothing but the best for Kevin. They are all going to leave at some point and it's next man up.

He realizes something you don't. The NFL is a lot harder than college!

getting to Clemson. He has been a model citizen since he has been in the program and he has improved vastly since he set foot on campus.

Your comment leads me to when we are recruiting talented players, the fans are continuously saying. If you want to play in the NFL, come to Clemson, the coaches at Clemson can get you to the NFL. All of this is true, Clemson has a great coaching staff that can coach guys with talent to the NFL. But when guys get overly anxious and leave early for the NFL, that great coaching they was suppose to get has taken a hit bc it wasn't completed. Personally I can't and won't defend them leaving early bc that last year under our coaching staff is very important to their development and their success. There is no way in h&ll or high water that their final year could have hurt their chances of entering the NFL, but that last year could and would have helped them out tremendously. An athlete is being coached their entire professional career. And even the NFL owners and coaches are continuously stating they even wish that college athletes would stay and get their last year of coaching, and especially the players that are being coached at Clemson bc our Clemson coaching staff are doing it the right way to the point that NFL coaches brag that Clemson players have been well coached. So why defend early departure when the 4th year that is offered only heightens their chances of making an NFL roster over other guys that left early declining their last year of getting more experience. The one thing that NFL owners and coaches are wishing for, that the entry level rookies had stayed in college and got their degree and their last year of FB experience. Check this out and ask why are college players in such a hurry to leave early and make less money, when money is the reason that they are claiming they are leaving early for in the first place. Anybody can suffer financially for the final year to have a better chance of succeeding and making it big after that year.
