* Raiders (#4 overall pick) have called with interest with Beasley.
* Beasley in an interview - "I just want to show the scouts that I can move around and play in space."
* Jacoby Ford said in an interview that he once ran a 4.126 40-yard dash.
* DE Tavaris Barnes had unique fashion today as he wore his gold under-armour football cleats.
* Rex Ryan in an interview talking about his son at Clemson - "This is a class program from top to bottom. You get it all here at Clemson."
* Swinney in an interview talking about Clemson - "Guys that went to the combine did a good job competing and representing Clemson." Nothing surprises me with this group. We are going to have around 15 guys in camp and a lot of guys are going to make it. This is a day a lot of them look forward to."
* Swinney on Beasley - "Proud of him. He has earned it and he bought in for our future and for his future. It has been fun to watch him in the last two and half years and to know he has his degree."
* Swinney on Jarrett - "He is just a football player. You can measure the times, but you can't measure their heart." Someone is going to get a special player. He is going to bring it everyday. That is what makes him special. He plays with a chip on his shoulder in a humble way."
* Swinney on Steward - "Wish he had another year at Clemson and he would have been a high pick."
* Swinney on Clemson prospects - "15 without a doubt in a camp." (19 total participating)
* Swinney on Clemson culture - "If you get a guy at Clemson, you are getting a graduate, a guy that has been disciplined, stretched, coached hard, get what you earn, foundation of excellence and what they have achieved as a player. I think 55 guys (drafted or FA) have got a shot and 80% have stuck. Proud of all the guys that have bought in and built the culture along the way. It matters where the guys come from."
* Bradley Pinion on leaving early for NFL - "It was the right time. I had only two classes to graduate."
* Tajh Boyd predicts a possible national championship for Clemson for 2015 during a ESPN3 interview.
* Watson on new quarterback coach Brandon Streeter - "He's a great teacher. He is a great guy to be around and has a great family."
