 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Former Clemson receiver Tee Higgins carried around hand sanitizer in his pocket and showed it off during interviews, encouraging reporters to "stay clean." Tigers offensive coordinator Tony Elliott used hand sanitizer as he left Clemson's indoor facility, while Clemson tight ends coach Danny Pearman wore what appeared to be purple latex gloves. Clemson held its pro day Thursday morning as players worked out in front of NFL coaches and scouts, hoping to improve their draft stocks. But there was a noticeably different vibe than your typical pro day with fear surrounding the coronavirus increasing around the country. "I think just people trying to have good precaution with what you're doing every day," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said of the unusual actions. "And trying to help the cause, kind of slowing this thing down and eventually it'll get under control so everybody can get back to living their lives."

Higgins, linebacker Isaiah Simmons, safety K'Von Wallace, offensive lineman John Simpson and several other former Tigers participated in Clemson's pro day. All of the players that spoke with the media afterward described the day as different. "It's blowing my mind," Higgins said. "They just canceled the NBA season. That's crazy. ... The thing is spreading like crazy, like a wildfire. I just hope everybody can stay healthy from it." Higgins, who likely improved his draft stock with 40-yard dash times of 4.54 and 4.56 seconds, was supposed to have dinner with an NFL team Thursday night, but the team was unable to fly due to the coronavirus outbreak. Instead, Higgins planned to fly to California on Thursday following pro day to continue training for the draft. - The State
