NFL Five Elite Prospects Leave School Early For 2019 NFL Draft Published 2 months ago on January 11, 2019 By Mike Vukovcan 2shares Share Tweet Flipboard Reddit Comment EmailMore premiere talent has just been added to the 2019 NFL Draft as all five players have a good chance to be high picks. Four members of the Alabama Crimson Tide and one player from the national champion Clemson Tigers officially declared their intentions to turn pro. Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams, defensive lineman Quinnen Williams, running back Josh Jacobs and tight end Irv Smith are projected to go in the first couple rounds. In fact, multiple NFL mock drafts have Jonah Williams and Quinnen Williams going in the first five picks. While splitting carries, Jacobs rushed for close to 900 yards and scored 14 touchdowns while Smith compiled 710 receiving yards with seven touchdowns. Clemson will need to replace one of if not their best defensive player in defensive end Clelin Ferrell. The 2018 Ted Hendricks Award Winner, winner of the best defensive end in the country, led Clemson with 11.5 sacks to go along with 19.5 tackles for loss. Ferrell will most likely be an early first round pick. Earlier this week, Clemson also learned that defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence, cornerback Trayvon Mullen and linebacker Tre Lamar will also be leaving school early for the NFL Draft. It goes without saying that the Steelers could be interested in any of these players. 2shares Share Tweet Flipboard Reddit Comment Email Related Topics:2019 NFL DraftfeaturedPittsburgh SteelersSteelers/2019 NFL Draft Up Next Larry Fitzgerald Still Unsure About NFL Future Don't Miss Important 2019 NFL Dates To Remember Mike Vukovcan Continue Reading You may like Steelers Weighing Plenty of Options at Michigan Pro Day Donte Moncrief has Upside Steelers Re-Sign WR Eli Rogers, DL Daniel McCullers Mic Drop: Bell Bet on Himself and Lost Steelers Should Use Added Draft Picks to Move Up Steven Nelson is an Upgrade, the Question is How Big?
