After two seasons in orange, Rodgers has proven himself to be a valuable playmaker. During the 2018 title season, Rodgers caught 55 passes (second most on the team) for 575 yards and four touchdowns. More on an underneath route-runner (10.5 yards per catch) — compared to Tee Higgins and Justyn Ross — Rodgers was certainly in line for some of Hunter Renfrow’s lost production.
Rodgers is a tough loss for the season, if that is what happens.

Rodgers enjoyed a career day during Clemson’s beatdown of Florida State last October, too. That Saturday afternoon, Rodgers hauled in six passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns.
A season ago, Rodgers was also Clemson’s leading punt returner: 39 returns for 299 yards and a touchdown.
