Giants Roster Breakdown: Chase Clement

Chase Clement with LSU last season - Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Could undrafted free agent tight end Chase Clement make the 53-man roster?

Let's continue our look at the 90-man roster the New York Giants will open training camp with by discussing undrafted free agent tight end Chase Clement, an intriguing player out of LSU.

2012 Season In Review

Clement was a tight end for the LSU Tigers in 2012, and was used primarily in a blocking role. He caught only 14 passes in three seasons as a tight end after converting from the defensive line, including five last season.

2013 Outlook

The Giants worked out Clement at their rookie camp and eventually signed him after fullback Henry Hynoski was injured. Head coach Tom Coughlin said that Clement could be used "not only as a tight end, but as a move fullback type guy." Tight ends coach Mike Pope said that we he first saw the 6-foot-4, 265-pound Clement he "had visions of Jake Ballard," the former Giants tight end now in New England. Pope also said "there is something to work with there."

Does that mean Clement will make the team? Not necessarily. The Giants have Brandon Myers, Adrien Robinson and Bear Pascoe. They always seem to keep at least one tight end on the practice squad, however, and Clement could wind up as that guy this time around.
