Miami senior TE Clive Walford "routinely drew praise from the Jaguars coaching staff for his routes, athleticism and ability to finish at the catch point," wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.
"He has an easy release off the line of scrimmage with the route acceleration to threaten the seam and be a downfield target. Warford doesn't have an elite frame for the position, but he knows how to use his size to shield defenders from the ball and create mismatches down the field," Brugler wrote. "Warford entered the week in contention to be the No. 1 senior tight end drafted and he's only helped his chances of that happening through two practices in Mobile. He has looked 'as advertised' from his Miami game film." The 6-foot-4, 258-pound Walford, who could run the forty in the mid 4.6s, collected 44 receptions for 676 yards and seven touchdowns in 2014.
