Clemson's football program had a modest 2018 NFL Draft. The Tigers only had three players taken. It took a while for someone to go, too. Rutgers, for example, had a player picked before Dabo Swinney's team.

This will change in 2019. Oh, it's going to change a lot.

If one school is going to dominate the top of the 2019 NFL Draft, it's going to be Clemson. The Tigers could have three players taken in the top 10.

Clemson, more than any other school, benefited from players deciding to return for another season. Swinney's team had several defensive linemen that could've been top NFL Draft picks this year, but they wanted another year with the Tigers.

The top of the 2019 NFL Draft should be dominated by Clemson's defensive line.

Defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence, defensive tackle Christian Wilkins and defensive end Clelin Ferrell are currently projected to be top 10 picks on Walter Football's 2019 mock. Not everyone seems to be sold on Clemson's ridiculous defensive line, though.

It will be a very interesting process to watch play out. The Tigers are certainly the team to watch out for heading into next year's draft.
