Former Clemson standout Jordan Leggett was tied for No. 5 in the tight end rankings as Mayock's top five tight ends were O.J. Howard, David Njoku, Evan Engram, Gerald Everett, George Kittle, and Jordan Leggett. This is a jump in the rankings for Leggett as he was not listed in the 2.0 version of the rankings.
No Tigers were included in the top five position rankings on the defensive side of the ball.
