Clemson’s production and experience at the wide receiver position for 2014 has taken a twin, albeit expected hit.
Yahoo! is reporting that Sammy Watkins, to the surprise of no one, has decided to make himself available for the 2014 NFL draft. Additionally, Martavis Bryant confirmed in a text message to the Charleston Post & Courier that he too has decided to leave the Tigers early for the NFL.
“I have decided to enter the draft, it’s best for me and my family,” the receiver wrote.
The school has yet to publicly disclose the future football intentions of the two players.
In 2013, Watkins and Bryant combined for 143 catches for 2,291 yards and 19 touchdowns, with the majority of that production coming from the former (101-1,464-12). Watkins is expected by many to be the first wide receiver taken in the draft.
The Tigers will also lose senior starting quarterback Tajh Boyd.
