Draft Scout Will Clarke News
10/05/16 - DE Will Clarke, a third-year defensive end, came into training camp looking to earn snaps, at least enough to open up a spot for him on the 53-man roster. The West Virginia product has done much more than that through four games.
Clarke has five tackles and three sacks, and he's played well enough to not only become a regular part of the rotation, but a guy who opposing defenses must account for.
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Bengals' picks: Round 3/88 - Will Clarke, DE, 6-6, 271, West Virginia...The Bengals needed a replacement for Michael Johnson and you can't get a more identical prospect than Clarke. He owns the sprawling wingspan the Bengals desire off the edge. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 94/9. Will Clarke, DE, West Virginia, 6-6, 271, 4.72, 3...This long, strong Mountaineer showed consistent improvement through his three years as a starter. Last season his 17 tackles for a loss was No. 2 in the Big 12 and his six sacks gained significant interest from pro scouts. In 41 career games, he collected 111 tackles, 29 for a loss and 9.5 sacks as he seemed to use his length for strength better each year. Frankly: Hard-working, athletic and looks like he can -- and should -- get even bigger and stronger. What's not to like? - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
01/21/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl Tuesday: Trio of lineman highlight physical North practice...On the offensive side of the ball, Martin locked down the blindside for most of the day, showing his trademark patience, forceful hands and underrated athleticism. While he generally played well, Martin's lack of ideal size was exposed a bit by some of the longer defensive ends he faced during Tuesday's practice, most notably West Virginia's Will Clarke, a 6-foot-6, 271-pounder with nearly 34" arms. While Notre Dame's standout handled speed rushers, Clarke used his long arms to keep Martin's hands from grabbing hold of him. Unable to latch on, Martin was beaten to the outside, on occasion, reinforcing the theory that while he could remain at tackle in the NFL, he projects as a potential Pro Bowl guard. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/18/14 - PROSPECTS WHO HELPED THEMSELVES AT THE SHRINE GAME: 2. DL Will Clarke, West Virginia (6-6, 273, 4.83, #98)...Last weekend, I listed Clarke as my top defensive prospect in the game and a week later, that hasn't changed. He is a tall, flexible athlete with the long arms and natural bend to get around blockers and disrupt the pocket. Clarke got himself in trouble a few times when he popped up off the snap and lost initial leverage, but he has the explosive first step and length to be productive at the next level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
