Corey Clement NFL Draft Profile
Size: 5’10 221lbs
- Lower body power
- Decent speed to get to the edge
Analysis: Corey Clement was supposed to be the next Melvin Gordon, but off-the-field issues and injuries derailed his career somewhat at Wisconsin. He’s got an incredible physique and size that NFL scouts covet. He utilizes explosive, sudden jump-cut to bound like a deer from gap to gap. Combination of lower body power and balance through contact allows him to run through weak tackle attempts. Able to elude defenders who bolt into the backfield. Lateral quickness and speed to the edge appear to be in order.
- Character issues
- Impatient runner
- Not a pass catcher
- Not an instinctive runner
Analysis: Scouts have labeled Corey Clement as “entitled” and question his football character and leadership. Had 2015 season washed away due to injury, attitude and an off-field incident (suffered a hand injury when punching someone in an elevator, and he lied to coaches and university staff about the incident initially). One speed, monotonous approach as a runner. Lacks burst and drags feet through hole, allowing defenders to get hands on him. Impatient. Runs up the back of blockers rather than allowing plays to develop. Missing improvisational talent and finesse. Not an instinctive runner and lacks feel for development of running lanes between the tackles. Can be indecisive and very impatient. He rarely played in passing situations.
NFL Comparison: Dominic Rhodes
Draft Projection: Round 3 talent, but character issues will see him fall to Round 5-6https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/corey-clement-nfl-draft-profile/https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/corey-clement-wisconsin-badgers-football-offseason-spotlight.jpg?fit=630%2C435&ssl=1https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/corey-clement-wisconsin-badgers-football-offseason-spotlight.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NFLNFL DraftRecent PostsCorey Clement,NFL,NFL DraftCorey Clement-RB-Wisconsin Size: 5'10 221lbs Strengths: Size Elusive Lower body power Decent speed to get to the edge Analysis: Corey Clement was supposed to be the next Melvin Gordon, but off-the-field issues and injuries derailed his career somewhat at Wisconsin....Dan SchalkDan Schalkmyfantasysportstalk@gmail.comAdministratorDan Schalk is a sports enthusiast with degrees in Sports Coaching and Sports Management.
