NFL.com released its 2016 NFL Mock Draft 6.0 recently and three Clemson defenders were listed back-to-back-to-back in the first round.

Safety T.J. Green has skyrocketed up draft boards with his blazing speed at the NFL combine and now is projected to go in the first round to the Arizona Cardinals at the #29 selection.

Green finished his junior season with 95 tackles, 5.5 for loss, broke up three passes and forced two fumbles. In 2014, he had 24 tackles and an interception.

Defensive end Kevin Dodd with his impressive three-sack performance in the National Championship game was predicted to go in the first round to the Kansas City Chiefs at the #28th selection.

"Andy Reid and John Dorsey know you can never have enough pass rushers," NFL.com said.

Dodd had a breakout 2015 season with 62 tackles, 12 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss (second in the nation).

Defensive end Shaq Lawson was projected to the Carolina Panthers at the #30th selection.

"The Panthers are loaded up the middle, but they need some talent coming off the edge," NFL.com said.

Lawson finished the season with 86 tackles, 25.5 tackles for loss (first in the nation), 12.5 sacks and 15 quarterback hurries.
