04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Steelers' picks: Round 7/231 - Toney Clemons, WR, 6-2, 210, Colorado...Big and fast, late bloomer who has shot at No. 5 on team. - The Sports Xchange

04/02/2012 - Pro days can lead to pay days in the NFL. One head-turning performance by a college standout can draw that fine line between the beginnings of a pro career and selling insurance for a living. Valley grad Toney Clemons had one of those attention-grabbing pro days earlier this month in Boulder, Colo., and it could have unlocked a door into the NFL. "It came down to 80 yards," said Clemons, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound wide receiver who wasn't invited to the NFL Scouting Combine but played in a senior all-star game in Arkansas. "Two 40 (-yard dashes). I had a quiet confidence and was ready to compete that day." The Colorado grad blistered the 40-yard dash in 4.36 seconds -- the fastest 40 time in the former track star's career. "Officially, it's the fastest," said Clemons, 23. "You have some great athletes running the 10 split in 1.50 or 1.49. I did it in 1.47. You want to be able to perform when it counts most." "I have the draftable grades," Clemons said. "To be picked would be a great thing. I feel I have done what I needed to do. It's incredible to be in a position where I once saw myself getting to." - Bill Beckner Jr., Valley News Dispatch

03/09/2012 - Sixteen former CU players participated in the University of Colorado's Pro Football Timing Day in an effort to display their skills in front of scouts from 15 NFL teams. The athletes participated in various drills in preparation for the NFL Draft, which will be held April 26-28 in New York City. Players in attendance were offensive linemen Ryan Miller, Ethan Adkins and Sione Tau, linebackers Josh Hartigan, Tyler Ahles, and David Goldberg, defensive backs Jonathan Hawkins, Arthur Jaffee, Anthony Perkins and Travis Sandersfeld, defensive tackle Conrad Obi, fullback Evan Harrington, tailback Rodney Stewart, tight end Ryan Deehan, wide receiver Toney Clemons and quarterback Tyler Hansen. Also in attendance was UCLA wide receiver Taylor Embree, son of Colorado head coach Jon Embree. With events beginning shortly after 9 a.m. at the Dal Ward Athletic Center, players were measured for height, weight, arm length, hand size and wing span. The sixteen athletes then participated in a drill to measure their vertical jump. Perkins excelled at the drill, putting up the highest number of 38.5 inches. Players were then asked to showcase their strength in the bench press. Harrington had the most reps of the standard 225 lbs., completing 29 reps. The athletes then moved to the team's practice bubble to participate in drills including the 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, 60-yard shuttle and the 3-cone drill. The day's top 40 time went to Clemons, who ran a 4.36 laser-timed dash. - Colorado football

03/08/2012 - Colorado Pro Day: Three Buffs - defensive back Travis Sandersfeld, wide receiver Toney Clemons and fullback Evan Harrington - definitely raised their stock, but how much won't be known until draft day. Sandersfeld turned in the second longest broad jump (10 feet, 6 inches) and the second highest vertical jump (37 inches) of the day along with some decent times in sprints and cone drills. Harrington also had some strong numbers, benching 225 pounds 29 times, better than every other Buff except Miller, who put up 32 at the combine. Harrington also showed he can catch the ball out of the backfield. Not many fullbacks get drafted these days in the modern NFL where so many offenses spread things out. So a priority free-agent deal might be more likely for Harrington. "I'm optimistic, just waiting to see what the plan is," Harrington said. "Hopefully that blessing will come and I'll have the opportunity to play at the next level." Clemons ran the 40-yard dash in 4.42 seconds on his first try and followed it up with a 4.36 sprint on the ancient, worn out turf in the practice bubble. Both were electronically timed. "I feel like I helped myself a lot," Clemons said. "I did a good job out there running around and showed the scouts a lot of things that they had questions about as far as how I can run, running routes, hand position, catching the ball, being explosive. I answered a lot of those questions. For me, they needed a clock on me. So to go out there and give them a time they can circulate was definitely a blessing." - Kyle Ringo, Daily Camera

09/22/2011 - Colorado's trip to Ohio State this week is personal for a few Buffaloes. Wide receiver Toney Clemons transferred to Colorado after his sophomore year at Michigan, Ohio State's main rival. "Going against Ohio State is going against Ohio State," Clemons said. "It's all business first. I'm familiar with that team; I've played them twice. The Horseshoe is going to be a mad house. We have to get ready to play against them." Clemons played in 2007 and 2008 for Michigan, but the Wolverines lost both games and scored only 10 points in those games, including a 42-7 loss at Ohio State in 2008. "I played in Columbus my sophomore year," Clemons said. "It's going to be a sea of red, and those guys are going to be amped up. We're going to be ready too." - The Sports Xchange

09/22/2011 - KEEP AN EYE ON: WR Toney Clemons - The senior has become a deep threat for the Buffs. He had three catches for 65 yards against Colorado State, an average of 21.7 yards per grab. He also had a 44-yard touchdown catch. It was his fourth career touchdown and the others covered 73, 26, and 23 yards to give him an average of 41.5 yards per score. - The Sports Xchange

09/22/2011 - SCOUTING THE OFFENSE: Colorado exceeded 100 yards on the ground for the first time this season in the win over Colorado State, racking up 145 yards. The Buffs will need to continue to improve the running game against the Buckeyes. Colorado is running the ball more than 30 times per game, but averaging only 90 yards on the ground. The Buffs are getting less than three yards per carry on average. Colorado has six more rushing attempts than its opponents this year, but has totaled 62 fewer yards. PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Toney Clemons - The senior had three catches for 65 yards against Colorado State, an average of 21.7 yards per grab, including a 44-yard touchdown catch. He has four touchdowns in two seasons for the Buffaloes and averages 41.5 yards per score. He played his first two seasons at Michigan after growing up in Pennsylvania and played Ohio State twice with the Wolverines, but did not have a catch in either game. - The Sports Xchange
