Hairston will join former Clemson standout C.J. Spiller after being selected with the No. 25 pick in the fourth round.
Hairston was a first-team All-ACC selection in 2010 and was a second team selection the previous year.
Meanwhile running back Jamie Harper was selected No. 130 overall, also in the fourth round, by the Tennessee Titans.
Harper surprised many when he elected to leave Clemson after his junior season.
Also, Byron Maxwell was selected by the Seattle Seahawks with the No. 173 overall selection (sixth round).
Six former Tigers have now been selected in this year's draft, with several more slated to go later today.
