PFF Grades for 2019 Clemson First Round Draft Picks

by ESP STAFF REPORT

Pro Football Focus has graded all the 2019 first round NFL Draft picks through the first seven weeks of the season. Here is a look at how the former Clemson players have graded out so far with their respective teams...


PICK NO. 4: EDGE CLELIN FERRELL, OAKLAND RAIDERS


- 2019 overall grade: 46.8 -


The fourth overall pick once again failed to surpass the 60.0 threshold, this week ending his game with an overall game grade of just 51.8. He did manage to record a quarterback hurry on one of his 24 pass-rush snaps, but that was really the only contribution he made to the Raiders’ defensive efforts. Through seven weeks, he’s won just 6.5% of his 139 pass-rush matchups, a figure that ranks 67th among 69 qualifying edge defenders.


PICK NO. 13: DI CHRISTIAN WILKINS, MIAMI DOLPHINS


- 2019 overall grade: 61.0 -


Wilkins had earned a 70.0-plus overall grade in each of his past two games before Week 7, so hopes were high for the first-round interior defender this week. Unfortunately, he was ejected on the second play of the game for throwing a punch at Bills’ offensive lineman Cody Ford. Wilkins left the game with zeros across the stat sheet and an overall game grade of 26.7.


PICK NO. 17: DI DEXTER LAWRENCE, NEW YORK GIANTS


- 2019 overall grade: 81.8 -


Lawrence’s run of highly graded games came to an end this week against the Cardinals, as the first-round interior defender ended the game with a grade of just 52.8, his lowest mark since Week 1. He failed to record a quarterback pressure on any of his 15 pass-rushing opportunities in the game, but he did manage to find the stat sheet with two defensive stops against the run.
