John Clay - RB - Wisconsin

By Joe Everett on Sunday, 10th April 2011

john-clayClay is a bigger back that doesn’t shy away from contact and can run through holes on the interior.

He is not a break away threat nor does he have the ability to take the edge on plays to the outside.

Clay also has a bit of an injury history and scouts question his overall durability, as well as his straight line speed.

The Wisconsin Badger simply had no choice but to come out this year, as he would likely be second or third on the depth chart but his lack-luster 2010 season, combined with his question marks will make it a difficult proposition for a team to take a chance on him in the draft.

Regardless where he is selected, Clay is a player that could carve out a niche for himself on a team in need of a short yardage goal-line specialist.
