Sports Illustrated's senior writer Bruce Feldman released his annual list of college football’s top workout warriors and Clemson defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence and Christian Wilkins made the Top 10 for 2017.

Dexter Lawrence was No. 2 on the list of top workout performers in college football.

"Since reporting to Clemson a year ago, the 6’4 ½” Lawrence has trimmed down a bit this off-season to 335 from 342. His bench press is 465, but the really scary aspect is how fast he can move, clocking a 4.90 40 and a 10-yard split at 1.70," Feldman said. "For perspective, at the combine one year ago Joey Bosa’s was 1.68 while weighing 269 pounds."

Lawrence had 79 tackles including 9.5 tackles for loss, and 23 QB pressures as a freshman last season.

Fellow Clemson teammate Christian Wilkins was ranked No. 7 on the list.

"This off-season, Wilkins measured in at 6’2 1/5” and 310 pounds and clocked a 4.80 40.," Feldman said. "Even more impressively, his 10-yard split was 1.62 seconds. No one close to 300 pounds at this year’s NFL combine was close to that quick. Wilkins also bench pressed 375 and did 31 reps at 225."

As a sophomore, he recorded 56 tackles including 13.5 tackles for loss.
