Clemson edge-rusher Clelin Ferrell is likely a player we’ll be discussing quite a bit as a possible 2019 NFL Draft selection of the Pittsburgh Steelers for the next several weeks as he’s already been linked to the team in a few mock drafts. That will likely continue to happen the next several weeks following Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin both being at the Clemson pro day. With our draft profile of Ferrell still forthcoming on the site, a few readers are wanting to see more about the plays he made during his college career at Clemson.
In an effort to provide you as much information as possible when it comes to several top players in the 2019 draft class, I am currently putting together as many contextualization posts as I can between now and the end of April and especially when it comes to players who the Steelers might select in the various rounds. In this post, we’ll contextualize the defensive plays made by Ferrell during the 2018 season and specifically those that included him registering ether a tackle for loss, a sack, a pass defensed, a hurry, an interception, or a forced fumble.
Ferrell registered 11.5 total sacks in the 15 games that he played in 2018 at Clemson and 19.5 total tackles that resulted in lost yardage. He also registered 4 total pass breakups to go along with 7 hurries, 3 forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. I was able to track down all of these 35 plays that he made in 2018 and they are contextualized for you in the table below and in order. Each play is linked to a video of it on Youtube.
