Clady started at right tackle as a freshman, earning Frosh AA honors. He shifted over to left tackle a year later, and has earned two straight All American honors.
Clady is the prototype left tackle. He has a long, lean frame and is an excellent athlete. He easily mirrors defenders in pass protection, and shows excellent lateral agility. He is an excellent pass protector, and should keep his quarterback’s jersey clean on a consistent basis.
The only thing Clady really needs is to spend some time getting stronger. He lacks the ability to drive defenders off the ball in the running game.
Clady needs some work, but his upside is tremendous. He may end up being the best left tackle out of this draft. Everyone thinks Jake Long is a lock as the top tackle, and while he probably is, do not be surprised to see Clady have just as successful a career in the NFL.
