Sermon also had an elite game against the Clemson Tigers in the 2021 Sugar Bowl, where he earned 193 rushing yards during the victory.

Sermon parlayed his two huge games into becoming a third-round draft choice in the 2021 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers.

Big things were expected from Sermon and many pundits felt he was well-positioned to be the lead back in San Francisco.

During their most recent contest with the Cleveland Browns, Sermon fumbled early in the game, but made up for it in the third quarter with an explosive 33-yard touchdown run.
