Top 5 Highest Paid Clemson player in the NFL

There are 45 current Clemson players in the NFL. That earns you 10th overall. The former Tigers begin to prove their worth, though, when you consider their total salary. Who of the Clemson Tigers is making the most money in the NFL right now, with a total earnings of nearly $752 million as of 2023? Although initially unexpected, the results make sense if you are familiar with Clemson football and how they have won their national titles.

Even though DeShaun Watson and Trevor Lawrence, two NFL starting quarterbacks for Clemson, only one of them finished in the top five of the highest-paid Tigers in 2023. Three former Clemson defensive lineman are currently making more than $10 million in a single season.

Top Earning Clemson Players in the NFL in 2023, based on cap hit.

1. Grady Jarrett – DL – Atlanta – $20,625,000

2. DeShaun Watson – QB – Cleveland – $19,057,000

3. D.J. Reader – DL – Cincinnati – $15,521,324

4. Hunter Renfrow – WR – Oakland – $13,126,000

5. Christian Wilkins – DL – Miami – $10,753,000

However, Trevor Lawrence, who is currently with Jacksonville on a rookie deal, will probably soon be at the top of the list. It’s encouraging to see three defensive linemen on the list considering that Dabo Swinney has based Clemson’s success on having a potent front seven. Regarding Watson and Renfrow, the duo is now making money in the NFL after defeating Alabama and giving Clemson their first national championship in a generation.
