Will Clarke has shown through his workouts that he could be a versatile player in the NFL, following a similar path as Bruce Irvin and DeMarcus Ware with the ability to play DE and OLB. The Cowboys brought Clarke in this week to see if he could fill the void left by Ware.
The Dallas Cowboys are in need of defensive line help after losing Ware and Jason Hatcher via free-agency. This week, the team has lined up visits with many would-be draft picks, with the bulk of them coming on the defensive line.
This is the first known private workout Clarke has had. He was seen working closely with Eagles officials at WVU’s pro day.
Clarke’s draft stock has been on a steady rise since the East/West Shrine Game. His play there garnered him an invite to the Senior Bowl where he also stood out. He showed himself to be one of the most athletic defensive linemen at the NFL Combine and again impressed scouts at the pro day.
With less than a month to go until the draft begins, you can be sure this won’t be Clarke’s last stop.
