09/05/18 - DT Christian Wilkins passed up the NFL Draft a year ago to make a bid for another national championship and improve his draft stock. The highest-rated of the Tigers' defensive stalwarts, Wilkins wasted no time in impressing draft scouts this season, leading the team with seven tackles, including a sack, despite limited playing time against Furman. "He played awesome -- a really great game," coach Dabo Swinney said.
01/20/18 - NFL Early Entries: College Winners and Losers: Big winner -- CLEMSON: Heavens. If the Tigers had returned any of their three potential first-round draft picks along the defensive line -- ends Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant, and tackle Christian Wilkins -- it would have been a coup. But all three came back, citing some form of "unfinished business" after a playoff semifinal loss to Alabama, to re-join true sophomore tackle Dexter Lawrence in what could be one of the all-time great defensive fronts. But that's not all. Left tackle Mitch Hyatt -- look for him on all your preseason All-America teams -- also is coming back to anchor an offense that lost receivers Ray-Ray McCloud and Deon Cain early to the draft but returns all the key pieces in the backfield. If Clemson isn't the preseason No. 1, it's 1B behind Alabama. - Anthony Gimino, The Sports Xchange
