Clemson junior DT Christian Wilkins will return to school for the 2018 season.
Clemson had the best defensive line in college football last season. And with Wilkins' decision to return, every member of it is returning to campus in 2018. Wilkins joined First-team All-American DEs Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant in (surprisingly) opting to head back. That terrific trio is joined by manchild DT Dexter Lawrence, who could be the highest-drafted linemen of them all (Lawrence is first eligible to declare for the NFL after the 2018 season). The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Wilkins posted 55 tackles, 8.5 TFL, 4.5 sacks and four pass breakups this past season. Assuming good health and another strong season, Wilkins figures to go in Round 1 in the spring of 2019. An NFL scout told NFL.com's Chase Goodbread during the season that Wilkins could be a 10-year All-Pro. ESPN's Mel Kiper deems Wilkins a "Jonathan Allen-type lineman" who could be used as a 3-4 DE or a 4-3 DT in the NFL. Jan 15 - 5:49 PM
