I think the problem or the questions people have with the idea of Clementine dragging Lee isn't because of his weight it is because they were in the midst of a zombie herd. Even when characters have masked their smell with zombie guts in the tv show and in the comic they still had to move slowly and act like other walkers. It isn't feasible for her to of dragged him undetected.
If there was no risk of her being detected because walkers didn't use their sight and used the sense of smell to detect humans as some have suggested, then she wouldn't of needed to hide herself and Lee by forcing down and locking the shutter.
I enjoyed the game on the whole but I thought that particular sequence was bollocks. I don't know why people are making excuses and trying to rationalise it just because they love the game. If Sophia in the TV show who was larger and stronger than Clementine managed to drag T Dog who was larger than Lee, in a similar situation people would be slating the writers and question how she could have done it, again not because of his weight but because of the hundreds of zombies. The zombies in Kirkman's walking dead are far more perceptive than people are giving them credit for and it is for that reason that Lee and Clementine were walking slow in the first place. The smell of the guts would not have been enough to trick the zombies, they would have to move like them as well. Even if it was Christa dragging Lee that sequence would be hard to accept, simply because the behavior would be out of the ordinary and cause curiosity in the surrounding zombies, supporting others is not zombie behavior, dragging others is not zombie behavior unless they are feeding on a struggling corpse.
