Pro Football Focus (PFF) has ranked the top 50 underclassmen in the College Football Playoff and the list is littered with Clemson Tigers. 17 of the players on the list are from Clemson, including 3 of the top 10, and 4 of the top 11.

Tops on the list is Tigers sophomore QB Trevor Lawrence. PFF had this to say about the Clemson signal caller.

“This one was a no-brainer, as he’s our top-rated prospect among all the quarterbacks in the playoff, including the upperclassmen. His highs are higher than anyone we’ve ever seen at his age, and he can make quite literally every throw on the football field. He hit his stride down the stretch of the season, as he’s the highest-graded quarterback since Week 8. He’s limited the turnover-worthy plays admirably over that span, throwing just one over his 148 attempts after Week 8 — the fewest among all qualified signal-callers.”

Also in the top 10 was sophomore WR Justyn Ross, who came in at number 6, and sophomore DE Xavier Thomas, who came in at number 8. Just outside the top 10 was true freshman DT Tyler Davis, who came in at number 11. Two more Tigers ranked inside the top 20, sophomore LT Jackson Carman (14th), and sophomore CB Derion Kendrick (17th).

The rest of the players making the list are as follows:

23. RS Freshman OT Jordan McFadden

27. Freshman WR Joseph Ngata

28. Sophomore RB Lyn-J Dixon

31. RS Sophomore OG Matt Bockhorst

35. Sophomore CB Mario Goodrich

39. RS Sophomore TE Luke Price

40. RS Sophomore DT Jordan Williams

42. RS Sophomore DE Logan Rudolph

45. RS Sophomore LB Baylon Spector

47. Freshman WR Frank Ladson Jr

48. RS Freshman DE KJ Henry
