Tweetcap of Clemson’s Pro Day: Wide receiver Deon Cain has disappointing showing 


Clemson’s Pro Day is over. 

TheY had 17 players workout, but only seven -- and no projected first-rounders – made NFLDraftScout.com’s top 500 player list. 

“I was out here to watch these guys compete,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said on Thursday. “Some of these guys are living the dream of having a Pro Day. It’s a big hurdle for them. …I’m proud of them. It was a good group. Not a big group. Next year, we might have to have Pro Week.” 

Wide receiver/cornerback Ray-Ray McCloud helped himself the most by participating in several drills and he caught punts. McCloud is a projected seventh round pick.

Wide receiver Deon Cain (second/third round) is Clemson’s top prospect and he had a poor day catching the ball.

The other NFL prospects are guard Taylor Hearn (fourth/fifth round), linebacker Dorian O’Daniel (fifth/sixth), defensive back Van Smith (seventh/free agent), offensive guard Tyrone Crowder (seventh/free agent) and center Justin Falcinelli (free agent). 

Here’s a tweet cap from Clemson’s 2018 Pro Day:
