Twitter reacts to Dexter Lawrence going No. 17 overall in NFL Draft
|Thursday, April 25, 2019, 10:27 PM- -|
Former Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence was selected No. 17 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft on Thursday night.
The three first-round selections with No. 4 overall pick Clelin Ferrell, No. 13 overall pick Christian Wilkins, and No. 17 overall pick Dexter Lawrence is a school record for first rounders in one NFL draft.
It's only the second time since the AFL-NFL merger that three from one position group were selected in the first round (2006 NC State DL the other).

Big Dex goes #17 in the draft to Giants. Gives Clemson three first rounders for first time. Clemson joins NC State (2006) as only school with three DL to be taken in first round.— Tim Bourret (@TimBourret) April 26, 2019

Dexter Lawrence is really good, but also projected to go late in the first round. So Gettleman uses the 6th overall pick, Odell Beckham Jr, and $20 mil to get a projected late 1st rounder and late 1st/early 2nd rounder. Boy, that’s some GMing. #NFLDraft— Max Kellerman (@maxkellerman) April 26, 2019
So the first player the Giants get back in the Odell Beckham trade is Dexter Lawrence.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 26, 2019
History, y'all. Clemson now has three first-round picks in a single draft for the first time ever.— Ross Taylor (@ClemsonFBRoss) April 26, 2019
