    #12-CLEOTHA "CLEO" LEMON, JR. Arkansas State University Indians

    Positives... Well-built athlete whose solid frame could add a few more pounds without any loss of quickness...Has excellent speed for his position...Drop-back passer who stays very cool under pressure...Effective short range passer who has the zip behind his fades to hit receivers in stride...Though not elusive, he can slide from pressure...Has an over-the-top delivery with good wrist action.

    Negatives... Too quiet in the huddle, rarely showing his leadership ability...Despite his quickness, he seems very hesitant to run with the ball, and when he does, he does nor secure the pigskin properly to prevent the fumble...Too often his passes will either sail over the receiver's head or be under-thrown to the point where it is impossible to come back for his off-target tosses...Has poor footwork dropping back to his release point... Lacks instincts in picking up the blitz and is often caught by the pass rushers as he does not sense when the pocket is collapsing...His overall accuracy on his tosses need a drastic upgrade...While he has no problems grasping the play-book, that intelligence does not translate on the field due to his poor decision-making...Passes tend to wobble on his attempts to throw long.

    Quiet athlete who moved into the starting lineup midway through his freshman season...Gained 7706 yards with 48 touchdowns on 551 of 1128 passes (48.9%) during his career, breaking the old school all-time records of 409 completions of 824 passes by Johnny Covington (1992-95), 5383 yards and 33 scores by James Hamilton (1968-71)...His 7261 yards in total offense broke the old Indians career-record of 6779 yards by Roy Johnson (1988-91).
