Clemons made an impact on multiple levels of Texas football, first starring at Cisco College at the JUCO level after his high school career with the Mustangs of Sachse.
After a dominant freshman year, Clemons transferred over to the Aggies. He wound up spending five years at College Station, taking a medical redshirt in 2018 and opting to exercise a fifth year of eligibility bestowed as compensation for the COVID-19 pandemic.
Though Clemons’ stock might’ve taken a hit for a 2021 arrest and injury issues, his dominant hands and ability to play both on the line and at linebacker could make him an attractive defensive diversity option. (But for the Jets’ depth chart sake, consider Clemons a pure EDGE player.)
Clemons is set to provide the Jets some long-sought pressure in a division where dual-threat quarterbacks are a lasting, realistic danger: Clemons was credited with 46 pressures last season, leading the Aggies and good for fourth in the SEC. He has also tallied 15.5 tackles for a loss over the last two seasons, including 11 sacks.
Barring a trade, the Jets have no more picks remaining in the 2022 NFL draft.
