Micheal Clemons Scouting Report

Clemons sports long arms and a hefty punch, giving him both the tools to engage first and capitalize on it. Clemons also shows a thoughtful pass-rushing approach, mixing in two-hand swipes, spin moves, bull rushes and inside counters on top of his bread-and-butter rip-and-dip around the edge.

Most impressive of all, Clemons has functional flexibility around the edge to get wide for a guy his size. If anything, his long legs can make it tough for him to stay low and maintain leverage, but that alone shouldn't crush him.

Areas for Improvement

Clemons' profile as a run defender is much more suspect. He has the size, length and moments of hand usage to be effective against the run, but he too often fails to play his assignment correctly. Clemons can be late seeing stuff develop in front of him, in addition to his tendency to set the edge too wide/deep and let plays hit inside of him. His long legs can also make it awkward for him to resettle and find his anchor at times, too.

Clemons will need to refine his run-defense skills, which may be a tall order for an older prospect with plenty of experience already, but he has the tools to get there. His pass-rushing prowess will give him the leeway to learn run defense while still earning playing time.
