CLEMSON, S.C. — To no one's surprise, Trevor Lawrence announced Wednesday morning he will forgo his senior season and make himself available for the NFL Draft.

Lawrence will finish his Clemson career with a 34-2 record with a national championship and a runner-up finish. The ACC Player of the Year is expected to be the first pick in the NFL Draft.

Late Wednesday evening, offensive lineman Jackson Carman also went on Twitter to announce he will also be headed to the NFL.

Carman was named a second-team All-American by CBS Sports this season. He was a second-team All-ACC selection as a junior and third-team All-ACC as a sophomore.
