Twitter reacts to Dexter Lawrence going No. 17 overall in NFL Draft


by - Assoc. Editor -

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).
