NFL Draft: Film review of UCLA DL Kenny Clark

Breaking Burgundy Analyst Paul Conner shares his scouting notes on the power-packed lineman with first round potential.

Breaking Burgundy's Film Analyst Paul Conner will be in the lab crunching film on college prospects up until the 2016 NFL Draft. He will be sharing his notes on each player he watches throughout the process. 

Kenny Clark

Position: Defensive Tackle/Defensive End

College: UCLA

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 310

Age: 20

(Analysis of games vs. Stanford and Arizona)

Positives: Kenny Clark is a powerhouse. His raw power often draws the attention of multiple offensive lineman. Clark's job was pretty simple as he clogged the middle and made the running back go elsewhere. Clark is  pretty good at holding his block, reading the running back and shedding at the point of attack to bring the ball carrier down. 

Concerns: Clark doesn't provide much of a pass rush. Occasionally, he will beat an offensive lineman with a move but more of his pressure comes when he can run over the center. He needs to add more moves and use his arms more often to break free of blocks.

If drafted by Redskins: Kenny Clark would move out to defensive end in the Redskins 3-4 and play some snaps as a nose tackle as well. He would play the 1-Tech defensive tackle position in passing situations when the Redskins bring nickel on the field and have a four man front. Relatively the same assignments that Chris Baker currently has. If Washington passes on a DL in round one or decides adding one just isn't enough, Clark is a name to watch in the second round.
