    Steelers 7th Round Draft Pick - 2012 - Toney Clemons - WR - Colorado

    The Steelers go WR value with the first of their 4 seventh round picks, 231 overall, with Toney Clemons, 6'2" 210 lbs. Tall, big target that could be a factor in the redzone if he develops. Has issues with drops but may be able to make the team as a 5th WR. There is a need for the Steelers with depth at this position so he'll have an opportunity behind the 3 starters and
    recently re-acquired Jerricho Cotchery.

    These value picks late in the drafts all have issues either on the field or off to some degree so they are projects but their is a need for depth at WR.

    Toney Clemons said his best unofficial 40-yard dash time at Colorado's Pro Day was 4.36. Clemons is cousins with Steve Breaston, and Breaston is one of Todd Haley's favorite players.

    In 2011 he had 43 catches for 680 yds, and 8 TD's. In 2010 he had the same number of catches but only had 480 yds so he increased his production pretty nicely over that time.

    NFL.com

    Clemons was a reliable starter after transferring from Michigan. He is a huge and athletic receiver in the mold of Anquan Boldin. He has the same body type and strong base, and can go across the middle, using his core strength to break arm tackles and get upfield. Clemons has some value as a returner but would be merely serviceable in that role as a pro. Clemons has sixth-round value based on his potential to become a solid NFL pass-catcher.


    Strengths

    Clemons is polished as a runner, able to get into a cornerback's cushion off the line. He can break tackles after the catch and is productive at running drive routes across the field. He can catch a quick slant, break a tackle on a smaller corner, then look to run over a safety. He has the speed to be a deceptive deep threat and knows how to work underneath and sit down against zone coverage.

    Weaknesses


    Clemons has had issues dropping the ball. He is confident, but struggles to catch the ball with his hands and bring it into his frame. He is a physical blocker but can be too aggressive and a liability there at times.
