Two Clemson products rank among the top-10 rookies in the NFL after 11 weeks according to Pro Football Focus.
On Lawrence: "The 340-pound unit Dexter Lawrence has been feasting in his rookie season with the Giants, ranking ninth at his position in overall grade at 82.8 and fifth in run-defense grade, at 88.0. Not to mention, he’s also bringing guys down with ease, with just one missed tackle on his 25 attempts."
On Renfrow: "Playing in Gruden’s west coast offense that lives and dies by horizontal passing, Renfrow is a critical component and has really helped the offense as a whole. On slant and crossing routes specifically, Renfrow is tied for seventh in PFF receiving grade."
Lawrence, the 17th pick of the first round in April, has totaled 26 tackles, with 2.5 sacks this season.
Renfrow, a fifth-round pick, has tallied 33 catches for 365 yards and two touchdowns.
