Nick Claytor
Position: T
Class:  4Jr
School: Georgia Tech
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-6
WT: 304
40 Time: 5.55
Biography: Moved into the starting lineup last season after spending his sophomore year as a reserve. Played five games with the first team as a redshirt freshman.

Positives: 'Tall, relatively athletic lineman with ability in motion. Bends his knees, shows flexibility, and is fluid moving out to the second level. Moves well on his feet, redirects well to linebackers, and seals them from the action. Stays square and turns defenders off the ball run blocking.

Negatives: Must improve his overall strength. Marginal hand use and displays limited moves getting off blocks. Lacks pure power and can be controlled by single blocker. Mostly a first move lineman that must beat opponents off the snap. Not known as a hard worker in practice.

Analysis: Claytor has NFL type size and growth potential and has flashed ability in the past. However, he is very raw and is a developmental prospect who could be destined for a practice squad.

Projection: FA
