Former Clemson CB Andrew Booth Jr Falls Out of First Round of NFL Draft

Four cornerbacks were taken in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday night. Surprisingly, not one of those was former Clemson corner Andrew Booth Jr, as this marks the first time in three years that Clemson won’t have a first round pick.

Booth was a first-round selection in most of the major mocks heading into this years NFL Draft, with one having him going as high as No. 12 overall.

After two corners were taken in the first four picks, things were looking up for the former 5-star player. However, it wasn’t meant to be, as Booth will now be one of the best players still available when the second round begins on Friday.

Booth chose to forgo his senior season and enter the draft, and is expected to be the first Clemson Tiger off the board, despite falling out of the first round. During his three years with the program, the cornerback tallied 75 tackles, 5.5 TFL, 10 pass breakups, five interceptions, a sack and a fumble recovery, which he returned 21 yards for a touchdown.
