Clemson Has 3 Players Taken on Final Day of NFL Draft

Posted: Updated:

On the final day of the NFL draft, three Clemson Tigers were selected.

-4th Round, 127th overall, Malliciah Goodman (DE) - Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons continued adding to their defense by selecting Clemson defensive end Malliciah Goodman in the fourth round of the NFL draft on Saturday.

After picking cornerbacks Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford in the first two rounds, the Falcons took Goodman, who had seven sacks last season and whose eight career forced fumbles rank third in Clemson history.

 

-5th Round, 143rd overall, Jonathan Meeks (DB) - Bills

The Buffalo Bills drafted Clemson safety Jonathan Meeks with the 143rd pick in the NFL draft, continuing to boost their depth at safety.

Listed at 6-foot-1, 210 pounds, Meeks had 157 tackles, seven interceptions and 13 pass breakups in 50 career games, including 24 starts. Meeks is a versatile prospect who could play at strong or free safety in the pros and has good size and range.

 

-6th Round,  187th overall, Andre Ellington (RB) - Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals have added a second running back in the draft, selecting Clemson's Andre Ellington in the sixth round.

Arizona used its fifth-round pick on Stanford's Stepfan Taylor and followed up by getting Ellington with the 187th overall pick.

The 5-foot-9, 199-pound Ellington was first-team All-ACC after finishing with 1,081 yards rushing, 232 more receiving and nine total touchdowns.

Though undersized, he has good quickness and speed, and has shown an ability to run inside.
