It has been an up and down career for Clemson Defensive end Xavier Thomas. This past season he missed the first three games of the year after battling COVID-19 and strep throat over the summer. He also missed the ACC championship and College Football Playoff loss to Ohio State. Thomas will look to improve his draft stock by returning to Clemson for next season.
Myles Murphy, Justin Foster, K.J. Henry, Justin Mascoll and Thomas should be the top defensive ends for the Tigers in 2021.
