Oakland Raiders tight end Clive Walford has been dealing with a hamstring injury. He's missed all but two training camp practices. Prior to the injury, the feeling around Raiders camp was that the rookie out of Miami would beat out Mychal Rivera for the starting job. That may no longer be the case if he doesn't get back on the field soon.
Walford was by the far the most NFL-ready tight end in this year's draft. He left The U as their all-time receiving leader for tight ends. He made a huge impression at OTAs, however, this is a setback. Hopefully he'll be back soon enough that it doesn't impact his early season snap count. He is currently going undrafted, nevertheless, he may be worth a late-round flier as a high-upside TE2. He certainly has the talent and skillset to put up numbers as a rookie.
