Pros:  Lanky build with room for additional growth. ... Has at least adequate pure game speed to be the last line of defense. ... Takes good angles in pursuit.

Cons:  Lacks the bulk many teams prefer at safety. ... A reliable open-field tackler, but lacks the explosiveness to be an enforcer in the middle. ... Isn't a natural playmaker.

Styg's Broncos Fit:   A solid tackler with a good feel for his responsibilities and his teammates.  Was allowed to pick his spots on the field and was reliable in coverage.  Unfortunately, not overly athletic and doesn't seem to be able to push his game to the next level.  He can add size however, which could give him some much-needed power and explosiveness.

If he can prove his speed in workouts, Clemons' could surprise as a second-day defender capable of contributing immediately.  [see more...]
