Clemson Football: Ranking Top NFL Talent on Tigers 2012 Roster

After starting the season off with eight consecutive wins, the Clemson Tigers dropped four of their final six contests—including a 70-33 romp at the hands of West Virginia in the Discover Orange Bowl. 

However, the Tigers have the talent to bounce back from last season’s disappointing finish.  In fact, some of that talent will even be headed to the NFL when their collegiate playing days are over.

According to Pro-Football-Reference.com, Clemson has produced 173 NFL players in the program’s rich, 100-plus-season history.  There are 23 former Tigers in the league today, representing 16 different teams.

Defensive end Andre Branch, tight end Dwayne Allen, defensive tackle Brandon Thompson and cornerback Coty Sensabaugh were all selected out of Clemson in the 2012 NFL draft.  It would not be surprising if that trend continues into future drafts.

The Tigers will be adding to the above totals very shortly, as their current superstars move on to the next level.  This article will rank Clemson’s top six NFL-ready players in 2012.
