Corey Clement

Running back
School: Wisconsin | Conference: BIG 10
HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 5-10 / 220 | 40: 4.63 | DRAFT YR:2017


Projected Round
First-year starter who set career highs with 314 carries, 1,375 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns and was named Second Team All-Big Ten. Missed the majority of his junior season after sports hernia surgery. Rushed for 949 yards and nine touchdowns on 147 carries as a sophomore.
Inconsistent college running back with terrific next-level possibilities. Well-rounded, shows strength carrying the ball on the inside and speed around the corner. Patient, effectively follows blocks and consistently finds the running lanes. Displays a burst through the hole, the agility to turn the corner and uses an effective straight arm to keep opponents away. Keeps his feet moving, shows the ability to pick up difficult yardage, breaks tackles and drags defenders down the field. Displays above-average playing speed, keeps the play in bounds and works runs. Terrific pass catcher out of the backfield who extends his hands and snatches the ball from the air. Displays terrific short-area quickness with the ability to avoid piles and defenders and creates yardage.
Not a true perimeter runner. Ineffective when he runs east/west. Struggled with inconsistency and injury through the early part of his college career.
Clement was supposed to be the heir apparent at Wisconsin and finally took hold of the starting job as a senior. He displays a lot of skill on the field, which he later showcased during the Senior Bowl. If it continues to come together for Clement, he could surprise at the next level.
