John Clay

School: Wisconsin
Position: RB
Bio: Full-time starter the past two seasons. Awarded all-Conference honors after each campaign and as well as being named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year in 2009. Totals last season included 187/1012/14 after putting up 287/1517/18 as a sophomore. Freshman totals included 155/884/9, when he started one game. Carried the ball 629 times the past three seasons. Totaled 11 career receptions.
Positive: Massive, straight-line runner who is a battering ram between the tackles. Patiently waits for blocks to develop, does a good job following them, and is tough to bring down. Will carry the pile or pick up a lot yardage off initial contact. Falls forward when tackled. Consistently runs north/south, keeps his feet driving up the field, and runs over opponents. Finds the cutback lanes, always looks for an opening in the defense, and displays solid vision. Gives effort blocking.
Negative: Marginal burst of speed. Limited athlete. Cannot make defenders miss or avoid piles. Loses momentum when he must quickly change direction. Played at almost 275 pounds last season. Runs with an upright style and takes a lot of heavy hits.
Analysis: Clay has been a feature runner in Wisconsin's power offense the past two seasons and projects as a short-yardage runner in the NFL. He must dedicate himself to year-round conditioning if he wants a long career at the next level.
