Scouts were all over Michigan in 2016, as at least 15 seniors will get a chance to play in the NFL. Clark impressed them with the way he began his senior season, starting the first three games (10 tackles, two pass break-ups) before tearing his left ACL in the fourth game of the year. He attempted to get a sixth year of eligibility but was denied by the NCAA because he redshirted the 2012 season without an injury. The Kentucky all-state high school pick played in seven games as a redshirt freshman safety in 2013 (no statistics) before earning six starts there in 12 games the following year (18 tackles, one pass defended). A shoulder injury prevented him from starting in the second half of that season. Clark moved to cornerback as a junior, starting seven times over the course of the year (21 stops, three interceptions).



Exciting size and length outside. Is an imposing figure in press coverage. Maximizes arm length when attacking passing lanes. Ball skills are solid. Athletic enough to play in multiple coverages. Displays necessary timing for high-point disruption even in a retreat. Able to maintain his feel for route down the field. Has a make-up gear when beaten and can close out separation distance. Looks to run through the receiver and deliver some thump after the catch. Heads up tackler looks to attack the legs and wrap-up. Has potential to challenge for a role as gunner or jammer on special teams.


Leggy transitions can put him behind when forced to open and run. Tends to bend at the waist and lean into receivers when matching their release. Lacks fluidity to recover quickly when beaten by route fakes. Will struggle to stick with complex routes. Doesn't always play to his size. Slow to disengage from perimeter blocks. Too passive on the perimeter and needs an angrier heart against the run. Needs to improve his lower body strength. Season-ending ACL tear will likely prevent him from running and proving his speed pre-draft.

Bottom Line

Because Clark's recovery from an ACL tear makes it unlikely he'll be able to run pre-draft, teams may be hesitant to consider him as anything other than an undrafted free agent. However, the tape shows decent makeup speed to go along with his extreme length. Clark could challenge for a roster spot with teams looking for bump-and-run corners with an ability to operate on special teams.
