Scouting the AAC - SMU

It been few and far between for Mustangs selected in the NFL Draft, although they did have a good degree of success with Courtland Sutton, the second-round pick of the Denver Broncos in 2018.

Safety Rodney Clemons was someone I identified as a prospect during last summer’s review of SMU.

He’s an instinctive defensive back with a stout build. He lacks the blazing speed and is more of a strong safety or zone defensive back, but Clemons will do well in the right system.

James Proche has shown consistent progress the past two seasons as both a receiver and return specialist. He reminds me a bit of former Memphis receiver Anthony Miller in that he lacks great computer numbers but is a really good football player.
