RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Chris Clemons.
Although the arrival of 15th overall draft pick Bruce Irvin could threaten Clemons' snap count, expect the Seahawks to get Irvin on the field without it often being at Clemons' expense. To state it more briefly, the Seahawks aren't going to lessen Clemons' play count after he posted 11 sacks in each of the last two seasons. Irvin's arrival will more likely help Clemons by forcing offenses to account for Irvin on the other side, lessening the frequency that Clemons sees chip blocks from running backs and double teams from tight ends. Clemons will get further assistance of that sort from the arrival of the versatile and rangy Jason Jones, who should be a nuisance on the interior for Seattle.
After bouncing around the league as a situational pass rusher for six years, Clemons made the most of his first season in a starting role last year. The 254-pound end specializes as an edge threat in Seattle’s lopsided 4-3, and he has consistently demonstrated an ability to excel in this role throughout his career. His generally one-dimensional game means he won’t pile up too many tackles (he had 49 last year), but he’s a good bet to hit double-digit sacks after totaling 11 last season. Clemons is a bit unproven with just one season as a full-time player, however, so he comes with some risk.
Seattle traded for Clemons this offseason to upgrade its pass rush. Clemons totaled seven sacks combined the last two seasons as a situational pass rusher for Philadelphia. If that counts as an upgrade, then bully for the Seahawks.
Clemons will battle Jerome McDougle for the fifth defensive end spot.
Situational pass rusher.
Clemons will compete for the vacant weak-side linebacker spot left by LaVar Arrington. He is weak against the run but his quickness is a strong asset on passing downs. He will also spend time on special teams.
