Renfrow claims NFL dream as Raiders’ fifth-round pick

Former Socastee High and Clemson standout Hunter Renfrow was selected in the fifth round of Saturday’s NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Raiders. Here are a few fun facts about the former walk-on’s selection:

* Became the 57th player to have played for Head Coach Dabo Swinney to be drafted into the NFL, including the 10th fifth-round pick of his tenure.
* Was the ninth wide receiver in Swinney’s head coaching tenure to be drafted into the NFL. He is the 13th Clemson wide receiver under Swinney’s guidance to be drafted including Swinney’s stint as wide receivers coach from 2003-08.
* Represents Clemson’s eighth draft pick at wide receiver since 2013. Clemson’s seven selections at wide receiver since the 2013 NFL Draft were the most in the country entering the 2019 NFL Draft.
* Gave Clemson a draft pick at wide receiver for a fourth straight year, the longest such stretch in school history.
* Was the third Clemson player selected by the Raiders in the 2019 NFL Draft, joining DE Clelin Ferrell and CB Trayvon Mullen, adding to the first instance of the Raiders selecting multiple Clemson products in a single draft.
* Was the ninth Clemson player selected by the Raiders all-time, including an AFL Draft and Supplemental Draft selection. The Raiders had gone nine years since their last selection from Clemson (Jacoby Ford in 2010) prior to taking three Tigers in 48 hours in the 2019 NFL Draft.
* Represented the third Clemson player selected by the Raiders in the 2019 NFL Draft, marking only the second time in history that a team had selected three players in a single draft (1983).
* Joined Glenn Rountree (1998) as the only two players in Clemson history to be selected at No. 159 overall. Rountree was also part of a set of teammates to be drafted to the same NFL team, as he and both Raymond Priester were selected by the St. Louis Rams in 1998.
* Snapped a streak in which Clemson’s defense was responsible for the program’s first five selections in the 2019 NFL Draft.
* Becomes the first Clemson player who began his career as a walk-on to be drafted into the NFL since the Atlanta Falcons selected Reggie Pleasant in the sixth round of the 1985 NFL Draft.
