NFL football rookie preview and player description for the number 12 selection by the Denver Broncos in the 2008 NFL Draft, Ryan Clady, an outstanding and dominant offensive tackle from Boise State.
Number 12 Pick: Denver Broncos – Ryan Clady (OT, Boise State)
Denver selected an excellent choice for their needs. Ryan Clady an OT from Boise State seems to have great size and growth potential. The 6’6, 319lbs Clady has very good footwork for a guy of his stature.
Ryan, at Boise State, after getting off to a slow start put together some very impressive performances late in the season. After the dust settled on his 2007 season he completed 122 knockdowns, and led the nation with 21 touchdown-resulting blocks. That was a grade of 85.77%. Clady played in the Hawaii Bowl, and after that game, he elected to go pro.
Ryan’s high school football career was played at Eisenhower High School in Rialto, California. He was named to the first team All-CVL, and also first team All County, and All- CIF division. His senior season he posted 60 tackles and five sacks, along with a single fumble recovery.
One knock on Clady through his college years was his lack of strength in his lower body. With a nice NFL style workout routine this is sure to improve. He will put the work in, that is one things scout do know. Once again, we have a feeling the Broncos will take care of this as soon as possible. Look for Clady to have a solid rookie season.
