Default Re: 7th Round Picks: Toney Clemons

Overview

Clemons was a reliable starter after transferring from Michigan. He is a huge and athletic receiver in the mold of Anquan Boldin. He has the same body type and strong base, and can go across the middle, using his core strength to break arm tackles and get upfield. Clemons has some value as a returner but would be merely serviceable in that role as a pro. Clemons has sixth-round value based on his potential to become a solid NFL pass-catcher.
Analysis

Strengths

Clemons is polished as a runner, able to get into a cornerback's cushion off the line. He can break tackles after the catch and is productive at running drive routes across the field. He can catch a quick slant, break a tackle on a smaller corner, then look to run over a safety. He has the speed to be a deceptive deep threat and knows how to work underneath and sit down against zone coverage. Weaknesses

Clemons has had issues dropping the ball. He is confident, but struggles to catch the ball with his hands and bring it into his frame. He is a physical blocker but can be too aggressive and a liability there at times.

nice pick, this draft just keeps on getting better!

Toney Clemons is a real sleeper, he was one of the guys we brought in for a visit.

Clemons was raised in a suburb of Pittsburgh, and as a prospect with local ties, he doesn't count against the Steelers' allotted number of pre-draft visits. In 2011, Clemons was the Buffaloes' leading receiver, catching 43 balls for 680 yards and eight touchdowns. Between both Colorado and the Michigan Wolverines (where he spent the first two season of his college career), Clemons amassed 98 catches for 1,268 yards and 11 touchdowns

I wonder if they picked him because he was raised in Pitt.

Yeah I was joking lol. No this guy will be good.

Dare I say a better pickup than Streeter? To me Streeter had alot of issues, I'm glad we didn't get him.

I think they're looking for a tall speedster to stretch the field once Wallace is gone. They may very well have found him. Sanders and Brown can work the underneath (also deep, but they're not as tall as Wallace or Clemons), and this kid can work deep. I don't see him as a number 1 or 2, but all we really needed is what he provides - someone who can stretch the field when Wallace is gone.
