2019 NFL Draft Defensive Tackle Rankings: From The College Perspective

By

4. Christian Wilkins, Clemson

6-3, 315: Dexter Lawrence might have been the anchor of the great Clemson defensive front, and Clelin Ferrell might have been the disruptive force on the outside, but that was Wilkins’ front four.

He’s the exact type of smart leader you want to be the Face of the Franchise star, bringing the emotion, the effort, and the tone-setting ability that makes everyone around him better.

And he can really play, too.

Ultra-quick for his size, great at getting into the backfield, and a tough grinder at times who’s able to do the dirty work, there’s zero bust potential and the upside to be a dream player who takes over a locker room.

In most years he’d be a sure-thing top 15 overall pick, but he happens to be in an epic draft for the position. No, he’s not going to be the superstar top player on an elite front, but he’ll eventually be the first one holding up the Lombardi from the defensive side on the right team.

Projected Round: First
Real Value: Late First
