During this year’s NFL Draft, I stated that I believed that Tampa Bay made a mistake drafting Clayton at the 15th pick, instead believing they could’ve traded down several spots to 20th or lower and still selected him if they felt they had to have him. In light of the departure of Keenan McCardell and Bucs injuries (Galloway, Jurevicius), Clayton has proven to be the “shining star” of this year’s draft IMO, exceptions to Ben Roethlesberger. Clayton is having a stellar, productive year for the Bucs and his success is clear proof that he belongs at the pro level – and prolly will for the foreseeable future. At his current pace through the Monday night game, Clayton is on pace for 83 receptions for 1,181 yards. Not only would this be a Rookie Record for the Bucs, but they would stand as the fifth-best reception total and third-best yardage total in franchise history. His absence from LSU may also explain some portion of the missing offensive firepower thus far in ’04. Anyway, congrats and good luck to Clayton, he’s proven this fan wrong.
