It has been an interesting college football season for the Clemson Tigers so far. The reigning National Champions have somehow gone under the radar, despite posting an unblemished 13-0 record. Even if Clemson has been a bit underrated thus far, the Tigers still punched their ticket to the College Football Playoff.

Clemson will take on the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes in the Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 28, in a clash between two undefeated programs. While this is certainly the main focus for the Tigers right now, shortly thereafter Clemson fans' attention will turn toward the NFL Draft, as Clemson has once again produced some top-tier talent.

While this class might not be quite as highly regarded as last year's crop of players, as three Tigers went in the first 20 picks of the 2019 NFL Draft, here's a look at some Clemson players that could be first-round picks in 2020.

Potential Clemson First-Round Draft Picks in 2020
