Brennan Clay, Running Back
Career Stats: 379 carries, 1913 rushing yards, 13 rushing touchdowns, 52 receptions, 316 receiving yards, one receiving touchdown.
Brennan Clay put up decent numbers during his four years at Oklahoma. Capable of gaining yardage not only on the ground, but on screen passes. He can be a viable pick-up for a team needing a good change of pace back in the NFL.
He did not attend the NFL Draft Combine. His OU Pro Day results are as follows:
- 40 yard dash: 4.64
- Vertical Jump: 35 1/2
- Broad Jump: 9’11
- 20 yard shuttle: 4.21
- 225 lb. bench reps: 21
Clay has a good ability to make plays by trusting his blocks. He used that ability to keep a Sooners drive alive that drained the precious time away that Alabama needed to mount a potential come back.
He has decent speed to gain yardage going north and south. He was slower going to the outside, but was able to make up for that with his ability to trust blocks.
His drawbacks: Though he was reliable to get Oklahoma yardage, if a defensive player stood him up, the play often times would end there. He rarely was able to break tackles. Also, moving north and south was not an issue, making cuts, however was.
He is not expected to be taken in any round of the Draft. Low on everyone’s radar, CBSSports.com ranks him as the 53rd-best running back in this year’s class. He has the skill set, however, required to earn an opportunity to make it onto an NFL roster as an un-drafted free agent.
