2015 NFL Draft, player profile: T.J. Clemmings

The Cleveland Browns own the 12th and 19th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. This is a player profile guide of potential player the Browns can draft. Day 10 will feature Pittsburgh offensive tackle T.J Clemmings.

Clemmings began his college career playing defensive end in 2010 where he Lettered as a true freshman getting to three tackles. In 2011 he did not play in any games and redshirted. 2012 would be the last time he would play defensive end before switching to offensive tackle prior to the BBVA Compass Bowl.  Clemmings started at offensive tackle his final two seasons.

Clemmings was named First-team All-ACC and Second-team All American.

Clemmings had an impressive Combine, ranking among the top performers at his position in vertical jump and the 20-yard shuttle.

2015 NFL Combine results:

5.14 second 40-yard dash

22 reps on bench press (225 lbs)

32.5 inch vertical jump

111 inch broad jump

4.54 second 20-yard shuttle

The Browns already have a solid offensive line, but in the event one of the tackles are lost to injury, the Browns are a different team. The Browns lost Pro-Bowler Alex Mack last season and the team was on a decline from there on. Adding another first round lineman that has proved he can perform well, will add security and depth to a solid offensive line. Clemmings can come in and compete for a starting job.

The first round of the NFL Draft takes place on April 30.
