UCLA defensive lineman Kenny Clark is on his way to the pros. Clark is the first Bruin to be picked in the 2016 NFL Draft, going to the Green Bay Packers with the 27th pick. Clark figures to be a very solid defensive tackle product who could be molded into quite the player at the next level. His 300+ pound frame will be a load for offensive lines and he figures to be a player many teams will not want to have to deal with.

Clark finished his Bruin career with 29 consecutive starts. Clark was a third-team AP All-American, first-team All-Pac-12 Conference selection by both the  AP and coaches. He was also a team co-captain who appeared on the Bednarik, Nagurski, Outland and Lombardi Award Watch Lists. Clark recorded a team second best 75 tackles, six sacks, five pass breakups and 11 tackles for loss this season. Clark was a huge part of the Bruin defensive resurgence to being an elite unit in the conference.
