Scouting Report on Cameron Clear

by Barry Every - 10/08/2010
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Foot QuicknessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Possesses wide shoulders, long arms and a very lean upper body and a thick, muscular lower body. Basically he has the lower body of a lineman and the upper body of a tight end at this time, similar to Xavier Grimble from last season.
Needs Improvement: If he is to eventually project as an offensive tackle he will need to add at least 25 pounds of muscle mass, most of which should be upper-body weight. Clear needs to fire out as a blocker and take advantage of his tremendous athleticism and power. If he ends up starting as a tight end he will need to watch his weight and improve his speed.
Most Impressive: It is not out of the realm of possibility for him to become an every-down tight end. He has soft hands for a big guy and he knows how to use his body to shield defenders away from the ball. As a potential offensive lineman he is one of the most athletic prospects in the country.
Conclusion: If he starts off at tight end he could see early playing time. If he ends up making the move to offensive line he will most likely redshirt while he adds needed size. His future is bright if willing to allow the coaching staff to guide him to offensive tackle.
