Clive Walford comps to Allen as multi-purpose TE

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes Miami TE Clive Walford is a "combo tight end who can help a team in the running game and through the air."
Zierlein compares Walford to Dwayne Allen. "He lacks the elite athletic traits to be a game-changer at the position, but he is becoming a premium blocker," Zierlein wrote. "With teams looking for versatile tight ends to create matchups in two-TE sets, Walford's stock should be high." The analyst ranks Walford as the No. 2 tight end in the class. The 6-foot-4, 258-pound Walford logged 44 receptions for 676 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
