Tweetcap of Clemson’s Pro Day: Wide receiver Deon Cain has disappointing showing 

TheY had 17 players workout, but only seven -- and no projected first-rounders – made’s top 500 player list. 

“I was out here to watch these guys compete,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said on Thursday. “Some of these guys are living the dream of having a Pro Day. It’s a big hurdle for them. …I’m proud of them. It was a good group. Not a big group. Next year, we might have to have Pro Week.” 

Wide receiver/cornerback Ray-Ray McCloud helped himself the most by participating in several drills and he caught punts. McCloud is a projected seventh round pick.

Wide receiver Deon Cain (second/third round) is Clemson’s top prospect and he had a poor day catching the ball.

The other NFL prospects are guard Taylor Hearn (fourth/fifth round), linebacker Dorian O’Daniel (fifth/sixth), defensive back Van Smith (seventh/free agent), offensive guard Tyrone Crowder (seventh/free agent) and center Justin Falcinelli (free agent).
