Yahoo Sports’ Tank Williams shares his evaluation of Clemson Tigers CB A.J. Terrell.

Video Transcript

TANK WILLIAMS: After playing in the National Championships in the past three years, A.J. Terrell has played some of the best talent in the nation on a consistent basis. He has the size, athleticism and speed, but consistency is what he needs. Now on the upside, he's made huge splash plays in big games. His interception return in the 2019 National Championship game was a huge momentum swing leading to Clemson's upset of Alabama.

Now on the downside, Ja'Marr Chase got at him in the 2020 National Championship, but for his worth, A.J. kept battling throughout the game. Now as far as a comp, A.J. Terrell reminds me of Gareon Conley because both players tested similar at the Combine, both are known for making splash plays, and both have had to battle through their fair share of adversity as well.

A.J. TERRELL: Just had success in the Alabama game and then a little adversity versus LSU. You know, you just bounce back, don't lay your head down and just understand that it comes with the game and just bounce back.
