During the long and exhaustive player-evaluation process, National Football League teams leave no stone unturned.
But in a body-of-work business, some stones shine out like jewels.
Such was the case with the performances of DeAndre Hopkins and Malliciah Goodman in Clemson's Chick-fil-A Bowl victory over LSU.
Goodman seized his final collegiate moment for a breakout, three-sack performance against LSU - a showing that put him on the NFL's radar for the evaluation process, and ultimately led to him becoming the Atlanta Falcons' fourth-round pick.
"If the only game you watched of Malliciah Goodman was the bowl game, you'd think he's a first-rounder," CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler.
NFL.com's Mike Mayock had a similar take on Hopkins after the Houston Texans selected him in the first round.
“If you want to argue with that pick, put the LSU tape on," Mayock said. "He took the game over in the fourth quarter. He took the game over when it mattered most. He competes as well as anyone I’ve seen.”
