The NFL draft is over and 256 young men now know where they'll be attempting to live out their NFL dreams. 

Clemson saw five former Tigers picked in last week's NFL draft. The most notable, of course, was wide receiver Sammy Watkins. The Buffalo Bills traded next year's first-round pick to move up five spots to select Watkins. 

Injured offensive tackle Brandon Thomas was the last pick in Friday's third round. Bashaud Breeland was the second pick of the fourth round, while Martavis Bryant also went later in the fourth. Surprisingly, at least to Clemson fans, record-setting quarterback Tajh Boyd was the last to go. Boyd was chosen in the sixth round by the New York Jets. 

Several other Tigers will attempt to make NFL rosters as undrafted free agents. Darius Robinson, Quandon Christian, Chandler Catanzaro, Spencer Shuey and Tyler Shatley all have signed contracts with NFL teams, per Phil Kornblut of SportsTalk South Carolina. 

Now that several Tigers have departed, who will replace those five former Clemson stars that were drafted?
