Clemson scrambles on signing day to replace missing DBs

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson coach Dabo Swinney thought his team was filled up on defensive backs for next fall - until NFL dreams got involved.

Three of last year's starting secondary declared for the NFL draft shortly after the Tigers 45-40 loss to Alabama in the national championship game.

"We had to start making calls," Swinney said.
