Clemson released an updated list of its former players that are currently on NFL rosters. Obviously a lot can change between now and the start of the season, but I know some of you like to keep tabs on where former guys end up.
Kudos to Tim Bourret for another job well done:
Twenty-eight former Clemson football players are on NFL rosters. The list includes 10 members of the 2009 Clemson team, five who signed free agent contracts and five who were drafted. Five of the first-year players are offensive players and five are defensive players.
The list of Clemson rookies in camps includes C.J. Spiller and Jacoby Ford, the greatest all-purpose running duo in NCAA history. Spiller recently signed a contract with the Buffalo Bills after he was drafted in the first round, the ninth overall pick of the draft. Ford is in camp with the Oakland Raiders.
The list of Tigers on NFL rosters includes Brian Dawkins, now in his 16th year with the NFL, his second with the Denver Broncos. Trevor Pryce, now with the Baltimore Ravens, is in his 15th year in the NFL. Entering this year Pryce has 90 career sacks to match his uniform number.
The Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns have the most former Tigers with three apiece. The Steelers roster includes veteran Nick Eason, second year player Tyler Grisham and rookie Crezdon Butler. The Broncos roster includes Dawkins, center Dustin Fry and rookie Kevin Alexander. The Browns roster includes veterans James Davis and Chansi Stuckey and rookie Chris Chancellor.
