Whenever the term “raw” is thrown around it concerns me because it means untapped potential. When will we see that potential be turned into production? It could be year 1, year 5, or maybe never if not coached properly. Whenever an organization picks inside the top 10 it’s only natural to expect a day 1 starter.

Not many coaches really want to coach-up a top draft choice because they should be the more prepared young players you have based on investment. Clemmings is still very new to the position and even though he presents excellent physical attributes the position asks much more than just physical stature.

Technique is vital to this position and the Giants don’t have time to mess around with him learning the position. They need a draft choice that they can plug-in day one and contribute, especially with just about everyone’s job on the line. If Clemmings somehow falls to the second round it would be a different story, but the ninth pick is way too risky.
