4/27/22: Clark worked out really well at the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine, showing excellent size to go along with quickness and athleticism. The combine medical exam, however, revealed that Clark needed neck surgery. The repair is likely to force him to miss the 2022 season and will cause him to slide in the 2022 NFL Draft, but he could turn into a mid-round steal for the franchise that can be patient.
Clark was a tackling machine in 2021, sitting at No. 2 in tackles on the year and shooting up draft boards. In 2021, Clark totaled 136 tackles, two forced fumbles, 5.5 sacks, one interception and two passes defended. He had 63 tackles in 2020 and 49 in 2019 to go along with 3.5 sacks. At the Senior Bowl, Clark had a solid week of practice to help himself with teams.
Some team sources have raved about Clark. They think Clark could be a more athletic and more physical version of Zach Cunningham, who led the NFL in tackles early in his career. Clark is a future three-down starter who is a sideline-to-sideline tackling machine and can contribute well in coverage.
7/10/21: Clark held his own in 2020, forming a nice tandem with Jabril Cox. Clark has the potential to rise taking on a bigger role now that Cox has departed for the NFL. With his size and speed, Clark could continue the LSU tradition of strong linebacker play. He flashed at times in 2020.
