Wasn't much doubt but Travis Etienne is off to #NFLDraft after an exceptional and record-setting career at Clemson: 4,952 rushing yards, 70 touchdowns along with 1,155 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns. Clemson lucky to have him as long as it did. Will be a great NFL RB. https://t.co/x5bkP2Xqu7

Vogel’s @CGSAllStar CGS Top 50:
#1. WR DJ Turner, Pittsburgh
Turner is so exciting – he made my all-versatile team this year – but this game is his biggest shot to sit down with NFL teams and let them get a feel for him. A RB after the catch. Explosive & twitchy. #BrawlNetwork pic.twitter.com/sZdkyNAUtb
