NFL.com analyst Maurice Jones-Drew released his 2019 NFL Mock Draft Tuesday and had three Clemson defenders listed in the first round.

Defensive end Clelin Ferrell was projected to the Oakland Raiders at pick No. 4 overall.

"Pass rushers aren't hard to come by in this draft class," NFL.com said. "Oakland finds a natural in Ferrell."

Ferrell had 54 tackles including 19.5 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, seven quarterback hurries, and three forced fumbles in 2018.

Defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence was predicted No. 25 overall to the Philadelphia Eagles.

"Lawrence is a big, talented player who will alleviate pressure on Fletcher Cox," NFL.com said.

Lawrence had 37 tackles including 7.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks this past season.

Defensive tackle Christian Wilkins was projected to the Green Bay Packers at pick No. 30.

"Wilkins will help the Packers generate a pass rush with his explosive ability in tight spaces," NFL.com said.

Wilkins registered 50 tackles including 15 tackles for loss, six sacks, and two fumble recoveries in 2018.
