TJ Clemmings’ draft slide ends in Round 4

Former Pittsburgh Panthers offensive tackle TJ Clemmings finally has learned where he will begin his NFL career.

After being projected as a borderline first-round pick, Clemmings waited for three rounds and still did not hear his name called. Finally, in the fourth-round of the 2015 NFL Draft on Day 3, Clemmings heard his name called by the Minnesota Vikings.

The reason for Clemmings’ fall can be multiple factors.

Along with injury concerns, Clemmings is still a very raw player. His inconsistency on the field likely scared off some teams, but in the end he was just too good of a value for the Vikings to pass up in the fourth round.

If healthy, Clemmings can develop into a long-term starter in Minnesota.
