Scouting Report on Eugene Clifford

by Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Clifford is a physical safety with good size, long arms and excellent speed. He plays against a high level of competition in high school, has leadership skills and is a fierce competitor. Clifford is strong in run support and closes on the football well. He has good hands and instincts and reads plays well from centerfield. Clifford is excellent in zone support and doesn’t get out of position often. He can cover slot receivers if needed and is smooth in his backpedal. He’s not a big hitter but is a sure tackler and doesn’t take a lot of chances in the run.
