On to 2021: Clemson draft class could shatter school record

There is plenty to be settled between now and the next NFL draft, but there's no question it will have some very talented Tigers in it.
Bleacher Report's way-way-way-too-early mock draft has the Jacksonville Jaguars as the winners of the 'Tank for Trevor' sweepstakes with a No. 1 pick, Xavier Thomas boosting his stock as a junior to a No. 14 selection and Etienne (21), Jackson Carman (25) and Ross (27) also in the first round.
'Stick to Football' podcaster Mello's early 2021 rankings has Lawrence on top, Ross at No. 5 and Etienne at No. 9 and Carman also in the top-20 at No. 19.
Sporting News' early big board has Lawrence on top, Ross in the top-10 (7) and Etienne also in the top-25 (24).
"Lawrence could have been the No. 1 pick in the last two drafts," Bill Bender writes. "The 6-6, 220-pound quarterback has 66 TDs and 12 interceptions the last two season, and he's added 10 rushing TDs. He's the kind of quarterback who generates hype reserved for former No. 1 picks such as John Elway, Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck, and he will be the presumed top pick unless something drastic happens in 2020."
