Friday I released the first installment of starting FS and today I am releasing the second one. Last week we discussed why Tyrone Culver would make a valuable backup FS and a special teams contributor. Today we are going to talk about Chris Clemons:
Chris Clemons, FS, Miami Dolphins
EXP: 2nd year pro
Much like Tyrone Culver, Chris Clemons has good measurables to be a good FS in the NFL. Unlike Tyrone Culver he has exceptional speed (4.4 40 yard dash) and has adequate ball skills. Clemons to many people looks lost in coverage but in reality he seems to always be near the ball. When he does get beat his speed allows him to catch up. While in college he was always overshadowed by his teammate Micheal Hamlin which made him drop down to the 5th round. Many scouts had him come in his first year and compete for backup FS and special teams contributor which he did. It's now his second year and I expect growth from Chris Clemons to be at least be able to start in a couple games.
What I Saw:
- Seems more of a hard hitting FS than a ball-hawking one.
- Was late to the ball on some occasions.
- Run support needs a little help
- Always near the ball
- Very good Speed
- Gave up on some plays
Position in 2010: Starting FS/ Future Starting FSChris Clemons has very nice measurables and is now becoming more vocal something that will help him become the starter of this football team. He is always near the ball when thrown or ran and has enough speed to catch up when beat. I expect Chris Clemons to start developing into that overall complete FS we so desperately want. Right now he's that Hard-Hitting FS, later on in the year he should be the complete package. I expect Chris Clemons to be the starter this upcoming season teaming up with Yeremiah Bell as our two safeties.
Next Week, I will address on Reshad Jones and where he will fit in our defense.
