One Clemson star, wide receiver Deon Cain, is heading to the NFL Draft while another, left tackle Mitch Hyatt, will be back in school.
Deon Cain looks to follow in the footsteps of the other Clemson wide receivers that have gone on to successful NFL careers, including DeAndre Hopkins, Sammy Watkins, and Martavis Bryant.
Cain posted a career high 734 receiving yards this year, with six touchdowns. In 2016, with Deshaun Watson throwing to him, Cain had 724 yards and nine scores.
Dabo Swinney told ESPN’s David Hale that Cain is NFL-bound.
Just spoke with Dabo Swinney about Clemson's underclassmen. Deon Cain will enter NFL draft. Swinney plans to meet with Christian Wilkins, Clelin Ferrell & others in the next few days and decisions likely by end of the week.
