COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Clemson’s Jordan Leggett is headed to the Big Apple.

The former Tigers tight end was selected sixth in the fifth round (150th overall) by the New York Jets.

Leggett ended his career at Clemson with his name in the record books. Leggett is the program’s top tight end when it comes to catches (112), receiving yards (1,598), and receiving touchdowns (18) by a tight end. His efforts have also earned him a spot as an All-ACC selection in the last two seasons.

This past season, Leggett had 46 catches for 736 yards and six touchdowns. 

Leggett is the sixth Tiger to be taken in this year’s draft. He will join former Tiger Charone Peake on the Jets' roster.
