BIO: Garnered All-American notice last season leading the league in both receptions and receiving yards with numbers of 78/1,079/10. Second-team all-conference selection the prior season when he finished with 57/749/5. Caught 47/754/6 as a freshman teaming with Josh Reed.
POSITIVES: Good-sized wide out that has been the go-to receiver defenses cannot stop. Defeats jams at the line of scrimmage, uses his frame to shield defenders from the action and comes back to the ball. Adjusts to the errant throw then snatches the ball out of the air. Uses the sidelines well and looks the pass into his hands. Consistently finds the open spot in the field and always working to get open. Adequate route runner and relatively sharp into patterns. Goes over the middle to make the difficult reception in a crowd. Possess soft and strong hands.
NEGATIVES: Not quick releasing off the line of scrimmage, lacks speed and cannot beat defenders in a foot race. Could improve his blocking.
ANALYSIS: If nothing else, Clayton is a terrific football player and exceptional pass-catcher. May not be a game-breaking threat nor a big-bodied possession receiver, but he will be an excellent fit for a team that desperately needs a reliable wide out.
