Three Tigers selected in the top 20 of this 2023 NFL mock draft

Clemson football may be coming off a tough week against Notre, but the team remains 8-1 (6-0 ACC) with three games remaining in the regular season to make a statement for their season. 

In this final season run, the Tigers’ defense will have to step up and show everyone around the country why the group was getting so much attention prior to the season. In an off-year defensively for the Tigers, there are still some positives coming from this unit. These positives come from the NFL prospects of a few Clemson defenders. 

According to our friends over Draft Wire’s latest mock draft, there are three Clemson defenders they project to go in the top 20 of the 2023 NFL draft.
