HT: 6-3
WT: 245

Biography: Three-year starter who posted 43/526/7 receiving and 39/530/5 rushing as a senior. Had 39/530/5 receiving and 63/236/7 rushing as a junior. Posted career-high receiving numbers of 69/1024/7 as a freshman.

Positives: "Versatile college skill player with no true position at the next level. Catches the ball with his hands and effectively makes receptions in stride. Very quick transitioning from catching the ball to running after the reception. Displays strong hands, nicely adjusts to the errant throw, and can pull the fastball from the air. Displays a burst of speed carrying the ball. Gives effort blocking."

Negatives: Displays marginal quickness. Not a strong blocker or one that finishes off defenders.

Analysis: Clay was productive in all facets of the game on the college level yet lacks the height to be a tight end and the size to be a true lead blocker. He has enough skill and versatility to make it as a backup fullback in a West Coast offense.

Projection: 5th
