Tremayne Anchrum became the seventh and final Clemson Tigers selected in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Los Angeles Rams took the offensive lineman in the 7th round with the 250th selection.

Anchrum’s father was a former USC Trojan basketball player, bringing the offensive tackle, projected to be a guard in the NFL, back to his father’s old stomping grounds.

NFL.com describes Anchrum: “Short college tackle with good quickness and leverage. Will need to bump inside due to a lack of functional length. Anchrum does an excellent job of getting to landmarks laterally as a move blocker and has above-average body control to adjust and capture his second-level blocks. He has the tools to fire out and operate as a base blocker but could find himself controlled by two-gapping defensive tackles due to his short arms and average hand quickness. Despite his lack of desired size and length, he could be a nice, capable fit as a quality backup guard for a team looking to play in space.”

According to ClemsonTigers.com:

“Spot starter in 2016 and 2017 who went on to become Clemson’s full-time right tackle from 2018-19 as the team compiled a 29-1 record in those two seasons … played 2,516 snaps over 55 games (37 starts) in his career … his 2,516 career snaps made him only the 23rd player in school history to reach 2,500 career snaps from scrimmage … two-time all-conference selection and two-time ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week honoree.”

Dabo Swinney on Anchrum: “Tremayne Anchrum was a very underrated guy in this draft. He has been a four-year starter out of position and has played against the best of the best from Chase Young to Clelin Ferrell and everybody in between. He’s incredibly smart, very athletic, strong, and has a great football I.Q. He is another guy that’s going to change a locker room from a leadership standpoint. He is a captain and a graduate. He brings a lot of versatility to the offensive line because he can play tackle, obviously, because he started for us at this level for four years, but I think he’s got a chance to really make a really good guard at the next level.”
