´ Steel Curtain Rising: Who is Kyle Clement?

Screwed by Bloggers Polling, Again

Folks, it looks like Blogger's polling has decided to stop working. We had a good poll on the Steelers draft which suddenly got dropped to zero.

Guess you get what you pay for on these free platforms. Thanks to all those who voted.

Who is Kyle Clement?

One of the most interesting things about running a website/blog, is discovering how people find you on the internet.

You’d think that a site dedicated to the Steelers, would get most of its Google traffic from people searching for the latest on the Rooney family, the Steelers draft, Ben Roethlisberger, Mike Tomlin, or one of our other star players. Keywords related to these folks do supply a lot of traffic, but they’re not the biggest magnet.

On May 3rd Steel Curtain Rising dutifully informed that the Steelers had signed rookie free agent Kyle Clement. And since that time, the most common keyword drawing people to this site has been…. You guessed it: Kyle Clement.

Who is Kyle Clement? A few of our readers have generously given us some more information on this standout from Northwood University (Michigan.) Web research has yielded some more information. But I’d like to know more.

So if you know about Kyle Clement, share your knowledge with us. What is the guy like? What kind of on the field presence does he have? What kind of a guy is he off the field?

If Kyle Clement is going to be the next in a long line of rookie free agents to make an impact with the Steelers, let us know why. All you need to do is leave a comment. The only thing we ask is that you keep the discussion civil.

Kyle Clement is a big time player from a small town school. He is one of the most athletic big men coming into the draft. He was getting looked at for D1 football and basketball before tearing his acl his senior year of high school. Its hard to find a guy his size with his speed and knowledge for the game. He has the body of a noseguard yet the speed of a solid defensive end. Hes obviously overlooked coming from a D2 school (northwood) but undoubtably has the talent to compete for the active roster. Long story short... this kid is a sleeper that youll read about down the road with critics saying "what a steal"

Thanks.

I think it was CBS' website that labled Clement as a "steal."

Unfortuantely, his knee injury got him cut early in camp. Part of me is wondering if he'll be back as a practice squad player.
