Former Clemson cornerback in line to make first career NFL start

Now with the Minnesota Vikings, former Clemson cornerback Andrew Booth Jr. will likely get his first NFL start on Sunday against the Cowboys.

Speaking to the media on Friday, Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell said that he is expecting the former Tiger to start opposite Patrick Peterson as the team is dealing with multiple injuries in the secondary.

The news comes one week after Booth saw his first regular season action on defense against the Buffalo Bills last week when he finished with 3.0 total tackles.

Drafted by the Vikings in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft, Booth had an impressive career at Clemson.

The former five-star recruit finished his career as a Tiger with 75 tackles (5.5 for loss), 10 pass breakups, five interceptions, a sack and a fumble recovery. Last season, he was a First Team All-ACC selection with 39 tackles (3.0 for loss), five pass breakups and a team-high three interceptions.

While Booth has had to wait quite some time for meaningful playing time on defense, he now has a chance to showcase his skills against Dallas at 4:25 p.m. EST this Sunday.
