At the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine this week, TE Clive Walford had an interesting comparison for himself when asked for one by reporters. He says he watched every postseason play that the New England Patriots ran, and thinks he can be compared to Rob Gronkowski.
DB’s Take: Nothing like a little confidence to start off a prospect’s week in Indianapolis! Walford is a talented player that should get Day Two looks. However, teams probably won’t think “Gronkwoski” when they debate turning in Walford’s name on the draft card. At best, the former Miami Hurricane should be looked at as a guy who may develop into a starter in a few short seasons. He’ll have to earn that lofty comparison.
