NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — In a story April 25 about the latest from the NFL draft, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Christian Wilkins was suspended from Clemson’s bowl game after testing positive for a banned substance. Dexter Lawrence was one of three Clemson Tigers suspended from the bowl game who also missed the national championship game, and neither Wilkins nor Clelin Ferrell was involved.

Dexter Lawrence has become the third Clemson defensive player taken in the first 17 selections of the NFL draft.

The New York Giants picked Lawrence at No. 17 to help their defense after drafting a quarterback in Daniel Jones at No. 6. Lawrence joins Clelin Ferrell taken by Oakland and Christian Wilkins drafted by Miami in the first round despite Lawrence testing positive for a banned substance called ostarine. Lawrence was suspended from Clemson’s bowl game and also missed the national championship game.

Carolina also stayed with the defensive theme of the first round, taking Florida State edge rusher Brian Burns at No. 16. Tennessee gambled by taking defensive tackle Jeffrey Simmons from Mississippi State at No. 19 despite him tearing his left ACL in February.

Minnesota took the seventh offensive player of the round with the 18th pick, selecting center Garrett Bradbury from North Carolina State.
