Plyler on Hawkins: "I only saw Hawkins on film but liked the way he moves his feet. He runs well and makes plays moving from sideline to sideline. He will play outside linebacker but I am not sure if he will play SAM or WILL. If he can come in in good shape I think he could avoid a red-shirt season especially on special teams. Clemson identified him early and he stood by his commitment a long time. I thought it was important for players like Hawkins to stick with the new staff."
