Broncos: Clady still looking to regain form

PFF-headlinesThe Denver Bronco’s franchise left tackle, Ryan Clady, hasn’t quite regained the form he had prior to suffering a season-ending Lisfranc injury in Week 2 of 2013.

In 2012, Clady had finished as the fifth-best tackle in the league with a +22.3 grade, mostly on the strength of his pass blocking. That year, Clady allowed just 22 pressures in 609 pass blocking snaps – numbers were good for the fourth-best Pass Blocking Efficiency (PBE) among tackles.

Clady hasn’t matched that high level of success so far this season and is on pace to give up 34 pressures if he sees the same amount of pass blocking snaps as he did in 2012. He’s currently just 24th among tackles in Pass Blocking Efficiency.

Clady also hasn’t matched his solid 2012 run blocking performance (+4.5).  He had a rough Week 1 outing against the Colts(-3.6) and has hovered around zero as a run blocker in the games since.   

With a slate of elite pass rushers still remaining on their schedule like Cameron Wake, Dwight Freeney, and Mario Williams, the Broncos will need the Clady of old to return.
