Scouting Report on John Clay

by Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Clay has a great combination of size and quickness and is a patient runner who sets up his blocks well. He’s strong and his vision allows him to cutback to the right spot although he runs a little bit high. He’s fast enough to break off big runs, but in college he projects as a big back who will wear down a defense. Clay is a student of the game and his willingness to wait on his blockers is impressive at this stage. Clay has straight forward speed and has a head of steam after just a few strides. He can deliver a blow and will do so more often when coaches to run lower. Clay gets better as he gets more carries so he’d best fit in an offense that has a run-first mentality. He is very strong physically with a great work ethic and the frame to play at close to 230 pounds. Level of competition is a question mark but his skill set translates well to the right offense.
