Clemson also returns Xavier Kelly, Albert Huggins, Nyles Pinckney and Richard Yeargin on the defensive line, mixing fresh talent with experience.

Austin Bryant, Kendall Joseph and Mark Fields will also return for the Tigers.

Tigers coach Dabo Swinney on Saturday revealed first-round prospect and defensive end Clelin Ferrell will be returning for his senior season.

Christian Wilkins announced that he will skip the 2018 NFL Draft and return to Clemson on Monday afternoon. Clemson had 46 sacks in 14 games in 2017 and Wilkins, Lawrence and Ferrell were first-team All-ACC selections.

Wilkins, at 6-foot-4, 300-pounds, is a two-time All-America selection. He is expected to be announced on the academic team for a third time later this month.

Wilkins finished with 60 tackles, nine tackles for loss and five sacks this past season and was one of the leaders on Clemson's defense.

He was also named a finalist for the Lombardi Award, given to the nation's top player regardless of position, based on performance, leadership, character and resiliency. He has 15 pass deflections at the line of scrimmage over the last two years, more than any lineman in Clemson history.

The Tigers did lose a few offensive players to the draft, most notably junior receivers Deon Cain and Ray-Ray McCloud. Hearn has graduated, but had another year of eligibility after red-shirting 2014. Joseph had 80 tackles this season. And even heading into the start of the 2017 season it seemed like Wilkins was certainly going to the National Football League after the year ended.

The three starters lost on defense are first-team All-American graduate linebacker Dorian O'Daniel, graduate cornerback Ryan Carter and safety Van Smith.
