COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Tajh Boyd and DeAndre Hopkins should play one more season for the Clemson Tigers, according to ESPN's draft guru Mel Kiper, Jr.
Kiper, Jr. said during a conference call on Tuesday the two juniors would benefit from staying with the Tigers for the 2013 season rather than taking their chances in the 2013 NFL Draft.
"You're not a guaranteed first round pick. You should go back," said Kiper, Jr. "Boyd's not. Certainly Hopkins is probably more of a two [second round] that a one [first rounder]."
Staying in college until a player's senior year has several benefits, said Kiper, Jr. He noted that only seniors can play in collegiate all-star games and in the Senior Bowl. Only seniors can take part in the NFL Combine and pro days. Those experiences allow a player to show off his talent to interested teams.
Kiper, Jr. said both Hopkins and Boyd would benefit from an extra year of playing with a talented team like the Tigers.
Neither player has announced his intent.
Boyd told reporters in November that his decision was up in the air. His coach Dabo Swinney said he'd be surprised if his quarterback applied to enter the draft this time around.
