Two Former Tigers Named ‘Boom or Bust’ NFL Prospects

Pro Football Focus has named two former Clemson Tigers as boom or bust prospects in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Both are players that chose to forgo their senior seasons in order to enter the draft.

DE Myles Murphy

“Murphy is one of the scariest athletes on the edge in the class. While he hasn’t tested pre-draft yet due to a hamstring injury, Murphy ranked third on Bruce Feldman’s Freaks List last fall with a reported high-4.5-second 40-yard dash, 35-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump at 268 pounds. He’s a long and explosive edge who just doesn’t quite have a pass-rush plan as of yet and hasn’t shown much in the way of development since his freshman year. In fact, Murphy’s highest graded season came in that 2020 season, when he earned an 85.2 overall grade.”

LB Trenton Simpson

“Simpson’s write-up here looks a lot like Murphy’s above. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder ran a 4.43-second 40 and vertical jumped 40.5 inches in the pre-draft process. He has the kind of frame, range and power that everyone is looking for at linebacker, but he just doesn’t quite have the tape and only played true between-the-tackles linebacker for one season. With all those tools, Simpson also only broke up two passes in his career and picked off zero.”
