The Green Bay Packers surprised many people last night with their selection of Kenny Clark at the 27th spot. It was highly suspected that the Packers would either go for an interior linebacker or an outside pass rusher.

Kenny Clark, instead is a nose tackle out of UCLA.

Clark is a pick that does make sense though. With B.J. Raji making the announcement that he will be stepping away from the game, this leaves the Packers with a large hole to fill (literally). Clark (6′ 3″, 314 lbs) is a little smaller than Raji (6’2″, 337 lbs), but is also a little quicker.

Depending on how the Packers decide to run their defense this season will ultimately decide Clark’s position. The 3-4 would put him in his natural position, but the 4-3 may also be incorporated and that would shift him to the tackle position.

The Packers are hoping that Clark can help bolster their run defense. They ranked 21st in the league, giving up 119.1 yards per game. Clark has the potential to compete to be the number one option on the interior line as currently Letroy Guion seems to be the top option in-house.
