Player Overview

With 121 career receptions and 14 touchdowns, Walford leaves Miami with a chance to continue a strong tradition of productive pro tight ends. Scouts will have to be convinced consistency issues are in his past and overlook that he's not a special athlete.

Walford's athletic traits and versatility could make him the first senior tight end off the board, especially for teams looking for a matchup mismatch who can block and makes catches he probably shouldn't given his average athletic ability.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Impressive acceleration off the line to challenge down the seam. Quick, athletic receiver with the ability to catch the ball in stride and create mismatches with his athleticism, or line up wide and beat corners with his size and catch radius.

Generally reliable hands, with the ability to climb the ladder and utilize his large catching radius that scouts seek at the position.

WEAKNESSES: Lean lower body. Has struggled, at times, with mental mistakes over his career. Struggles as a blocker and has been plagued by drops in the past.

05/05/2015 - Tight end Clive Walford joins a position group that includes leading receiver Mychal Rivera, who caught 58 passes for 534 yards and scored four touchdowns, and unrestricted free agent Lee Smith, whose strength is as a blocker. Walford's ability to do both would be beneficial when the Raiders go no-huddle given his skill set. "I can high-point the ball. I'm a great pass catcher. I'm a great run-blocker," Walford said. "I'm just a dual threat tight end." Said McKenzie: "We saw Clive as a complete tight end. He's not only a receiver or a blocker-type guy only. He's a guy that's big and strong enough to pound it versus the D-linemen, and he can flex out and run the routes and be that pass receiver. - The Sports Xchange
