Former Clemson defensive end Kevin Dodd was drafted #33 overall by the Tennesee Titans during the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft on Friday night.
"When I look at him I see a long athlete, not really twitchy, but physical and can set an edge," Mike Mayock said on the NFL Network. "He will be a difference maker over time."
After playing just 92 snaps on defense in 2014, Dodd was second in the nation in total tackles for loss with 22.5 in 2015 (behind only Shaq Lawson), including an incredible eight in the two College Football Playoff games, more than any other FBS player in the postseason.
In 2015, Dodd had a breakout 2015 season with 62 tackles, 12 sacks and 22.5 tackles for loss.

Kevin Dodd’s ceiling is greater than Shaq Lawson’s. And they’re both very good.— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) April 29, 2016
