Clemson will have three representatives on hand in Indianapolis when combine workouts open on Saturday with tight ends, offensive linemen and special teams.
Quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers are up on Sunday. Included in those groups are Andre Ellington and DeAndre Hopkins.
Malliciah Goodman is scheduled to hit the field for Monday's workouts with the rest of the defensive linemen and linebackers.
NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock counts Ellington as one of the top running backs in this year's draft. He currently ranks Ellington third among prospects at the position.
"The guy that really caught my eye, and I didn't expect to like him as much as I do, is Andre Ellington," Mayock said earlier this week, when asked about Hopkins' performance in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
"One of the reasons I like him, he's 195 pounds and he might be the best effort protection running back in the draft, which really surprised me. He squared people up. Typically, you don't see that from 195-pound, change-of-pace-kind of backs."
Mayock added, "Most people like him as a third-rounder. I've got him as a second round guy."
Goodman is projected as a fourth or fifth-round pick by Mayock.
"I see some upside to him," Mayock said.
One of the combine snubs is former Clemson center Dalton Freeman, a two-time finalist for the Rimington Trophy. Though he wasn't invited to Indianapolis, Mayock believes Freeman's got the goods to play in the league.
"Late, draft-able," Mayock said, "Under-sized, quick, zone center. He'll make a team next year."
