Falcons’ Grady Jarrett’s house burned down during draft

Former Clemson Tigers defensive lineman Grady Jarrett has been waiting to hear his name called in the 2015 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, while he was waiting for one of the biggest moments in his life, a devastating incident took place.

According to reports, half of Jarrett’s house burned down on Friday night while he was waiting to be drafted.

Luckily, no one was injured, but half of the house is gone and Jarrett’s entire Clemson memorabilia collection was destroyed in the fire. More than 50 family members were at the home at the time of the fire.



It is great that no one was hurt, but our thoughts and prayers remain with the Jarrett family during this unfortunate time.
