Ryan Clady OT Boise St.
6'6", 317, 5.15
6'7", 309, 5.3
The one knock on Long is that he doesn't have great foot speed and might struggle against speed rushers in the NFL and may be better suited for a power rushing scheme. Gholston ran by him on one sack that I saw in that game, not a huge sample but a concern.
Clady playing in the Boise St offense has very good foot speed and is an accomplished pass blocker. I'll be interested to see how his numbers match up vs current Patriots O-lineman. I haven't seen him play this year but I remember him playing really well against Oklahoma last year. Does anybody have a take on him?
McShay projects him late first early second just behind Long on his ranking system and lists him as having experience at both LT and RT. Possible to come in and start at RT next year and move to LT eventually?
If we are able to trade down in the first round and pick up an early/mid 2nd rounder a guy like this could be the last piece of our O-line.
He's a junior so it's not certain he'll come out.
