Meet Undrafted Free Agent Braeden Clayson

New, comment

We continue getting to know the undrafted rookies that the Arizona Cardinals signed after the draft was over. We now focus on an offensive lineman -- guard Braeden Clayson from Idaho State.

The team press release says this:

Idaho State guard BRAEDEN CLAYSON (6-6, 300) played and started in nine games as a senior with six appearances at right tackle and three at left guard. He was recognized as honorable mention All-Big Sky after helping the Bengals offensive set multiple single game and season records in 2011. A Burley, ID native, Clayson was a three-year starter and played in 42 career games and made 30 starts at right tackle, left tackle and left guard.

Clayson is another example of a player with a ton of game experience. He is versatile, being able to play multiple positions.

One profile listed him at 326 pounds, so he may have cut weight.

At 6-6, he is pretty strong. He benched 225 25 times at his pro day.

There isn't much other information out there other than his pro day measurables.

However, when it comes to the NFL, versatility helps to make a roster. It sometimes impedes your starting, but it gives you a better chance of making a roster.

What do you guys think of him and do you know anything else?
