Jeremiah Trotter Jr. - Clemson

Jeremiah Trotter Jr. is a 6'0", 230-pound linebacker out of Clemson. He's only 21 years old and doesn't turn 22 until late December. He has the bloodlines to be a great linebacker too but if the Bills wanted to draft him, they may have to select him earlier in the draft than they would like. Trotter was a two-year starter for the Tigers, playing 1,304 snaps, recording 109 tackles, and adding four interceptions during that span. He was also terrific in rushing the passers, producing 49 total pressures, including 13 sacks.

NFLDraftbuzz.com gave Trotter a draft grade of 85.8, ranked him as their fourth-best linebacker in the draft, and 59th overall prospect. They a reported 40-time of 4.6 seconds and project him as a late second-round pick. Pro Football Focus gave him a grade of 85.7, ranked him as their fourth-best linebacker, and 82nd overall draft prospect.
