Rookie Spotlight ILB/S Josh Harvey-Clemons
Welcome back to the B&G Report! I hope the readers enjoyed the last Skins Q &A. It’s Dallas week and the B&G Report is excited to bring you the second installment of “Rookie Spotlight”. Last entry I went through my personal favorite rookie in safety Montae Nicholson. Nicholson has started most of the year, but today I’ll present a rookie who will see his first regular season action as a professional. Josh Harvey-Clemons aka “JHC” will be in the B&G Spotlight today. Let’s get to it!
6’4 226 Louisville Univ Josh Harvey-Clemons was the Redskins 230th pickoverall in the 2017 Draft. JHV dealt with multiple marijuana suspensions during his time at Louisville, which contributed to his draft day slide. I personally liked the late round selection, but if he has another positive test that would probably be the end of his career. So a late round flier is ideal for a player with such high upside. The Louisville product could have been drafted as early as the 3rd/4thround, if not for the multiple suspensions. Scouting reports compared him to a “Poor man’sKam Chancellor” with a “alpha mentality”. He was a highly touted five star national HS recruit, but again off the field issues hurt him in college. This Sunday will be JHC’s first career start, other than the preseason. The highlight of his preseason action occurred vs the TB Bucs, in which he recorded a pick six to the house (picture below).
