Will Clapp

Will Clapp was drafted in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL draft by the New Orleans Saints. Since then, he has been strictly a backup for Ola and Peat.

Pros

It seems like Will Clapp is ready for the challenge.

According to Glenn Guilbeau of the daily advertiser, “It’s definitely different,” Clapp said Wednesday. “You go from the Jumbo package (for short yardage) to situational stuff to you’re playing every play. And you’ve just got to be prepared for it.”

That seems to be the only pro is that Clapp is excited to start.

Cons

There is more here to say then there was for the pros. Will Clapp is not extremely fast or agile on his feet. Clapp gets beat off the line easily by mediocre defensive linemen. You can see that below.

In last Sunday’s loss to Atlanta, Brees ended up being sacked six times. Most of those came up in the middle as Clapp was being beaten by everyone who came up against him. Clapp may get to prove himself again but don’t expect much if Shaq Barrett opts to rush up the middle.
