Number 38 on my Top 50 RB’s List is @yeroc_
Corey Clement didn’t really have his name known until the playoffs, and especially the Superbowl of the last season. The then rookie running back showed out in the super bowl, and showed everyone his talent is something to be reckoned with. Him and his former Wisconsin teammate James White show a lot of similarities as the receiving backs on their team, and Clement is ready to take over the job of receiving the ball next year much like he did in the playoffs. Clement is currently behind Jay Ajayi, and ahead of Darren Sproles on the depth chart.
Nobody would have believed you if before the 2017 season you said the Eagles were even contenders, but now here we sit, basking in the glorious joy that is the fact that the Patriots didn’t win the Superbowl. Clement rushed 74 times during the regular season for 321 yards, averaging 4.3 ypc, which isn’t bad at all. He also spent the season behind Blount for the first part of the year, and then Ajayi too later in the year, so the fact that he was able to put together a season where he finished as the 42nd RB is impressive. Clement only had 10 receptions during the regular season, and he matched that total in the playoffs with another 10 receptions for more yards. That was when the Eagles saw his ability despite what the season had brought, and especially after the Superbowl, this kid is going to be seeing many more targets.
Now that Clement is solidified as the 2nd string in Philly, I would really expect him to fill in a very big role as a near replacement to LeGarrette Blount, not necessarily on rushing-wise, but to receive more than he did. Clement is a good receiver despite his regular season stats, and Ajayi has already shown he isn’t the kind of guy to be catching the ball out of the backfield. His role will be prominent, and enough to propel him inside the Top 40 RBs.
