04/17/2013 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: 124 FBS PROGRAMS, 124 POSSIBLE UNDRAFTED ROOKIE FREE AGENTS: OREGON: OLB Michael Clay (5-11, 230, 4.73)...Although he doesn't have the size or speed that scouts look for at the position, Clay plays faster and bigger than the numbers with an active, energetic style to make plays all over the field. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/15/2013 - 2013 Oregon Pro Day: Clay was not invited to the combine in large part due to his lack of height. The 5-11 (and 3/8), 230-pounder has excellent instincts and showed at least enough athleticism to warrant late-round consideration by clocking in the mid to high 4.7s in the 40-yard dash and showing great fluidity during positional drills.
Among the teams present at the workout were the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, Oakland Raiders, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
