Prospect Profile: Colby Clark

Colby Clark School: Northwestern
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 279 40: 5.03 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Four-year starter who posted 39/4.5/2.5 as a senior. Career best includes 81 tackles as a sophomore.

Positives: Undersized yet consistent defender who always gives top effort. Quick off the snap, plays with leverage and keeps his pads down low to the ground. Displays a good spin move, can twist or stunt and easily changes direction or redirects to the play. Possesses outstanding first step quickness.

Negatives: Handled at the point by a single blocker or pushed off the line.

Analysis: Often an afterthought in scouting circles, Clark's durability and consistency on the college level cannot be overlooked. Has size and athletic limitations, yet could be an inexpensive backup for a team that rotates the front four.
